Ryan Reynolds Signs First-Look Deal at Fox With ‘Clue’ Movie in the Works

Ryan Reynolds Signs First-Look Deal at Fox With ‘Clue’ Movie in the Works:

Ryan Reynolds is developing a feature film based on the board game “Clue” as part of a three-year first-look deal he has signed with Fox.

Reynolds’ Maximum Effort will develop “Clue” as a possible starring vehicle for the actor. Allspark Pictures, the film division of Hasbro, will also produce. The “Deadpool” writing team of Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick will pen the script.

The game, first developed in 1949, is a contest to determine who of six suspects murdered the game’s victim, where the crime took place, and which weapon was used. Each player assumes the role of one of the six suspects, and attempts to deduce. Paramount released a film version of “Clue” as a mystery-comedy in 1985 with Jonathan Lynn directing and Eileen Brennan, Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn, Christopher Lloyd, Michael McKean, Martin Mull, and Lesley Ann Warren starring.

Ryan Reynolds Is Playing Detective Pikachu in a Pokémon Movie. What?:

The Hollywood Reporter delivered this funny bit of news late Wednesday, reporting that Reynolds has joined co-stars Justice Smith (The Get Down) and Kathryn Newton (Lady Bird) in the latest big-screen adaptation of the wildly popular Japanese gaming franchise. The story revolves around Pikachu, Detective Pikachu, as he helps a young boy find his missing father. Newton will play a journalist who helps the pair along the way. Per T.H.R.’s sources, the role will be “motion-capture in nature,” so perhaps it’ll look a bit like the trailer for the game version of Detective Pikachu?

As his absurdist Twitter and Deadpool performance have taught us, Reynolds is probably the perfect guy to have a lot of weird fun with this role. He’s also got some experience in this arena, having lent his voice to animated projects before, including Family Guy and The Croods (remember The Croods??). So long, Pikachu who can only say its own name! Hello, Pikachu who will probably mutter curse words under his breath and mock everything in sight.

Deadpool 2 Recruits Shioli Kutsuna

Though you might think all of the central roles in Deadpool 2 have already been cast, here comes some news to change your mind. According to Deadline, Japanese actress Shioli Kutsuna is now aboard the sequel.

With David Leitch taking over the director’s chair for this one (writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are returning), the sequel naturally stars Ryan Reynolds as the man usually known as Wade Wilson. Morena Baccarin, Brianna Hildebrand, Stefan Kapacic and Leslie Uggams are all back, with new faces including Josh Brolin (hitting the gym – and the barber shop – hard to play Cable), Zazie Beets (Domino) and Jack Kesy (as a yet-to-be-announced villain).

Deadpool 2 is scheduled to arrive on June 1 next year.
