Ryan Reynolds says he will stop making films for a while.

The actor announces on

Instagram

that he is taking a sabbatical after the recordings for his latest project

Spirited

have been completed.

"Singing, dancing and playing in the sandbox with Will Ferrell made many dreams come true," Reynolds looks back on the filming of the film based on

Charles Dickens'

A Christmas Carol

. "The perfect time to take a sabbatical from filmmaking. I'm going to miss every second of working with this incredibly talented group of creators and artists."

Actress Octavia Spencer responds under the message that she was happy to work with the actor and says that he should enjoy his intermission.

Reynold's wife Blake Lively, however, makes fun of the Canadian actor by writing "Michael Caine Was Before".

With this she refers to the decision of the 88-year-old actor who said on Friday that he wanted to retire.

Not much later, however, the Briton came back to his statement.
