Ryan Reynolds Developing CLUE With DEADPOOL Writers

Ryan Reynolds and his production banner, Maximum Effort, are teaming up with 20th Century Fox for a new adaptation of the Hasbro murder mystery board game Clue – or as it is known in these parts, Cluedo.

The games was previously adapted to the big screen back in 1985 with the wonderful comedic talents of Tim Curry, Michael McKean, Madeline Kahn, Martin Mull, Lesley Ann Warren, and Christopher Lloyd. Taking the storyline directly from the classic board game, it focuses on a group of strangers who are invited to a mysterious house, and have to work with the staff to solve the mysterious murder of the aptly named Mr Boddy (played by Lee Ving).

In keeping with the nature of the whodunit board game, the film had three alternate endings, each included on the DVD and Blu-Ray, allowing audiences can make up their own minds as to who the murderer truly is.

Joining Reynolds in developing the new movie will be ‘Deadpool’ screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Allspark Pictures, the film division of Hasbro, will also produce. According to TheWrap, the new film will not be connected to the 1985 adaptation.
