Ryan Reynolds to Star in ‘Clue’ Film at Fox, Writers of ‘Deadpool’ Attached
Hollywood hunk Ryan Reynolds is planting roots at ‘21st Century Fox’, the Century City-based studio that is being acquired by Disney, signing a three-year first-look deal with the star and producer behind the studio’s Deadpool movies,
The studio has lined up a live-action feature version of Clue as Reynolds’ first project.
Reynolds scored the biggest hit of his career with Deadpool, featuring the flamboyant and racy Marvel anti-hero, and observers have wondered how his character would fit into the cleaner Marvel universe movies that Disney releases.
Clue is the popular board game that has a murder-mystery premise: Players take on the characters, with monikers such as Professor Plum and Colonel Mustard, to find out who killed the victim, what weapon was used and where in an English mansion the murder took place.
The game was previously adapted into the 1985 pic that starred Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn and Christopher Lloyd. Watch the trailer of the original masterpiece:
