'Ryan gives it a different kind of energy. He and Scarlett really paid attention to the storytelling,' filmmaker Michael Parfit described the stars' contribution.

Married couple and are set to work together on an upcoming documentary about killer whales. The blonde beauty is a co-executive producer of the film project, and her actor husband has signed up to narrate.

"The Whale" tells the true story of a baby killer whale which gets separated from its family and makes friends with humans. Reynolds is said to have been keen to take part because the production is set near his hometown of Vancouver, Canada, according to Variety.com.

"Ryan and Scarlett are both amazing in the range of their abilities," filmmaker Michael Parfit said. "It's not as if they're strictly pop culture people. They had so much respect for our vision. It's been another of those creative joys."

The filmmakers are hoping for U.S. theatrical release this fall or next spring, with PBS International handlng foreign sales.
