Nearly two years ago, it was rumored that Clue, the iconic board game-turned-even more iconic movie, was finally going to get the remake treatment Hollywood has been talking about for the past ten years. Ryan Reynolds, alongside the writers of Deadpool (Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick), were tied to a remake, which would be the first in a three-series movie deal with 20th Century Fox. Ryan is still involved, which means plenty of jokes involving Mrs. Peacock in the billiard room. And according to Deadline, the person yelling, “Okay, cut – I think we’ve got more than enough jokes about cocks and balls” will be Jason Bateman.
Obviously nothing can beat the perfection of Clue: The Movie, but Hollywood has been determined to make a remake happen for years now. The last time we checked in, 20th Century Fox had plans to make the stale hamburger version of Clue: The Movie’s filet mignon by creating a big-budget “global thriller” blockbuster. As it turns out, we’re not even getting hamburger anymore. Hollywood might be giving us human-grade dog food beef chunks in the form of a Clue movie made by Ryan Reynolds and the Deadpool writing team.
