WORCESTER -The new movie with Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool, The Proposal) will be filming in downtown Worcester next week.

“Free Guy” will be filming at Brew on the Grid, 56 Franklin St., on Wednesday. The shoot will halt traffic in and around the location, according to a flyer given to neighborhood residents and businesses.

According to the flyer, traffic will be restricted on Franklin, Portland, Federal and Church streets on Wednesday. In addition, parking will be restricted for preparation and wrap from Sunday to Friday.

The flyer twice names the movie to be filmed as “Level Up.” There is no current production for a movie of that name, according to, and a message at the phone number on the flyer refers to the Locations Department for “Free Guy.”

On Tuesday, 20th Century Fox released a photo of the cast and director Shawn Levy (above). Levy directed the Night at the Museum trilogy and the Netflix series Stranger Things.
