A 'Clue' Reboot Is On The Way With 'Deadpool' Writers & Ryan Reynolds

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.

The new Clue movie is being written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the writing team behind Deadpool.

The pact keeps the actor at the studio behind his signature Deadpool franchise.

Reynolds will executively produce the film and potentially star as well.

Reynolds also has Deadpool 2 coming out this May, and there are plans for more Deadpool and X-Force films, though those might depend on what happens with the Disney merger.

Reynolds will produce via his shingle, Maximum Effort, as will Allspark Pictures, the producing arm of Hasbro.

Murder mystery game Cluedo, or Clue as it is known in the U.S., is now owned by Hasbro and sees players try to figure out who murdered the game's victim, which weapon was used, and which room the crime took place in. In 2008 Universal attempted to make an updated version with Gore Verbinski - who up until recently has been attached to the upcoming Gambit film - but that project was eventually abandoned with Fox getting the rights to Clue in 2016. Paramount released a 1985 mystery-comedy take on the game, also titled Clue, starring Tim Curry, Eileen Brennan, and Christopher Lloyd.
