Well, hold your favourite films close to your heart, because they’re at it again. Yes, Hollywood are remaking cult classic live-action board game movie, Clue, with their go-to funny-man Ryan Reynolds in a starring role.
Deadline reported the news that Deadpool screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are reteaming with Reynolds on Clue, the first film in a three-year deal which the Deadpool star has signed with 20th Century Fox.
Reynolds will also act as producer on the film, in addition to starring, though it’s currently unclear which role the actor will play – however, just a stab in the dark, it’s probably going to be Tim Curry’s role of Wadsworth.
In 1985, director Jonathan Lynn and screenwriter John Landis adapted the board game Clue (or Cluedo, to Brits) into a feature film that boasted an incredibly funny cast, including the likes of Tim Curry, Madeline Khan, Christopher Lloyd, Michael McKean, Martin Mull, Lesley Ann Warren, and Eileen Brennan.
And though the film wasn’t a hit at the box office, over the years it has become something of a cult classic.
A director hasn’t been named yet, and so it will likely be a while before we see the rest of the cast formed. Though as another little stab in the dark, we may see the likes of Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Amy Poehler, Kristen Wiig or any current or former member of the Saturday Night Live cast.
