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!

    I’m assuming he’ll be playing Tim Curry’s role in the film. I hope they do a good job on it as Clue is an absolutely amazing movie. I hope they stay true to the type of humor in the original and not turn it into a modern mess (like Ghostbusters). I’m already trying to think of who would be perfect in the roles.

  • Cluedo. It’s called Cluedo.

      Hahaaa!! True. In some places….I never really understood that….like, what does Cluedo mean??

      • Ludo is latin for ‘games’ and the origin of the name of the gam Ludo. Cluedo therefore combines the words Clue and Ludo to make an original trademarkable name for a game.

          You are a smart guy!

    Let’s cast it.

    Wadsworth – Ryan Reynolds
    Professor Plum – Stephen Merchant
    Mr. Green – Keegan-Michael Key
    Col. Mustard – Nick Offerman
    Mrs. Peacock – Kristen Wiig
    Mrs. White – Zooey Deschanel
    Miss Scarlet – Zoe Saldana
    Mr. Boddy – Hugh Jackman
    Yvette – Briga Heelan

      I like Zooey as Mrs. White.

    • SeanDon

      I really like a couple of those, especially the Keegan casting, but man, I’m just not feeling Wiig. All I can picture are her last couple roles and even appearances on shows where she’s all wacky and high pitched. I’m also hoping that role could go to an older actress, maybe Helen Mirrin would be up for another movie with Reynolds?

      I like that you had Jackman in there instead of Channing Tatum or Tom Hardy.

      • Kronx

        Mirrin would work well, or maybe Jessica Walter.

        • SeanDon

          I’d be good with that. I’m just thinking it could use an older actress in that role to mix it up a bit more.

  • TheOct8pus

    Hopefully they’ll set the stage for endless sequels in this fanchise….a Clueniverse if you will

    • Kindofabigdeal

      Just wait until James Francos 13 Dead End Drive movie.

  • J-man The Great

    I sure hope we get a shared universe of movies based on Hasbro games! Nothing would be more riveting that seeing Hasbro Wars where we see Colonel Mustard sailing on a Battleship with only a bagful of clues that are a collection of single letter tiles searching for the lost Candy Castle that is guarded by various armies from Risk!

    I just…. I uh….. I think I’ll walk away on this.
