Ryan Reynolds Developing ‘Clue’ Movie Based on the Board Game
Ryan Reynolds has officially signed a three-year deal with Fox, and announced that he will be developing a movie based on the popular game Clue. Not many details have been released yet, but the script is being written by Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and Reynolds himself might play the lead.
The deal happened only a month after Disney bought the Fox movie studio and other properties from 21st Century Fox for a reported $52 billion (yes that’s billion with a b). Reynolds was a producer in Deadpool–that he also starred in–which became the highest-grossing R-rated film of all time, having made over $783 million in the worldwide box office. He is also producing in the movie’s sequel, Deadpool 2, which comes out May 18, 2018.
Clue will be based on the famous board game, which was first released in the late 1940s. The game’s objective is to determine who of the 6 suspects murdered a victim, where they committed the crime and what weapon was used. Each player chooses one character and has to try to figure out who did it by using well, clues. There is already a movie based on the game–the 1985 mystery-comedy Clue, starring Eileen Brennan, Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn, Christopher Lloyd, Michael McKean, Martin Mull, and Lesley Ann Warren.
