20th Century Fox are moving forward with a Clue remake with Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick re-teaming with the star of that hugely successful comic book movie, Ryan Reynolds. The film will be based on the classic board game, known as Cluedo in the UK and other territories, which was turned into a star-studded movie back in 1985.
Here’s some info about the original game:
There’s a mystery that needs solving, and you’re just the detective to do it on the go with this classic Clue game! Who killed the host of the fancy party? Where were they, and what weapon did they use? The gameboard has rooms to move in and secret passages to navigate faster, and if you’re a super sleuth you can keep track of the clues in your Detective Notebook and solve the case! When the case is solved, you can store all the cards and parts in the all-in-one game unit – until the next murder!
The 1985 murder mystery movie, scripted by Jonathan Lynn and John Landis, and directed by Lynn, starred Eileen Brennan, Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn, Christopher Lloyd, Michael McKean, Martin Mull, and Lesley Ann Warren.
The new version is part of a new three year, first-look deal with Reynolds’ production company Maximum Effort at Fox.
