Ryan Reynolds, John Candy, documentary

John Candy is a comedy legend. The iconic Canadian rose to fame thanks to SCTV before taking the leap to the big screen in films such as Stripes, Splash, Space balls, The Great Outdoors, Brewster’s Millions, Uncle Buck, Planes, trains and cars, Cool race, and more. Sadly, John Candy died in 1994 at the age of 43, but he left behind legions of fans, including Ryan Reynolds.

Ryan Reynolds has never been shy about proclaiming his love for John Candy and he announced further Twitter today that his Maximum Effort production banner is developing a documentary about John Candy’s life with Colin Hanks.

Ryan Reynolds says he can expect tears from his John Candy documentary. I am not ready. Not only was John Candy a comedy icon, he also became the owner of the Canadian Football League’s Toronto Argonauts along with Wayne Gretzky and Bruce McNall. The team went on to win the Gray Cup in 1991 after defeating the Calgary Stampeders 36–21. McNall was the only owner to have his name etched on the trophy at the time, but the CFL finally added the names of Gretzky and Candy in 2007, over a decade after Candy’s death.

John Candy died of a heart attack in his sleep while shooting Carts east, a western comedy that also starred Richard Lewis. Production was nearly complete, leaving the team to rewrite the script and use a stand-in and special effects to complete the rest of Candy’s scenes. Unfortunately, the film wasn’t exactly a triumph upon release, scoring a rare 0% on Rotten tomatoes. John Candy’s last film was Canadian bacon, which was filmed a year before his death. The comedy satirized the relationship between Canada and the United States and was written, produced and directed by Michael Moore.
