Well, this is a piece of news not a lot of folks could have predicted. It looks like Ryan Reynolds’ fruitful relationship with 20th Century Fox is continuing. According to a report from Deadline, Fox has made a three-year first look deal with Ryan Reynolds’ production company Maximum Effort, and the first film that Reynolds is set to produce under said deal is a remake of Clue.
Yup, the Tim Curry-starring board-game-turned-film will be remade alongside Allspark Pictures (Hasbro’s production company), but that’s not where the fun ends. Screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are currently in talks to pen the script for the film, and if you don’t recognize the names, they’re the duo who wrote the script for Deadpool.
The last piece of news won’t be a huge surprise. With Reynolds producing, it was pretty much expected he’d have a role in the film as well, and the outlet states that the movie is being developed as a vehicle for Reynolds. With him and the writers on board, this could be a really fun, tongue-in-cheek film that can perhaps even hold a candle to the original.
I suppose the biggest question here is whether or not the studio will have the balls to give the movie multiple endings. Our fingers are crossed!
