Ryan Reynolds attached to new ‘Clue film with ‘Deadpool creators

While questions abound over how Twentieth Century Fox’s feature assets will integrate into Disney, Fox still has a three-year first look deal with Reynolds’ Maximum Effort to develop projects for the studio.

Now Deadline reports that Reynolds has his first project, a new live-action film based on the Hasbro board game Clue, with Maximum Effort producing along with Allspark Pictures, the film division of Hasbro.

Fox is in the process of re-teaming Reynolds with Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who wrote the first Deadpool film.

The writers are in talks.

This is a big deal for Fox chairman/CEO Stacey Snider and vice chairman Emma Watts. Deadpool became the highest grossing Fox film since Avatar, as its $783 million worldwide gross establishing itself as the highest global grossing R-rated film of all time.

The studio will release the untitled Deadpool sequel, which David Leitch directed, on May 18. Reynolds is repped by WME and so is Reese & Wernick.
