Ryan Reynolds and his production company, Maximum Effort are on board to bring a new live-action adaptation of Hasbro’s board game Clue to the big screen. This move additionally includes Deadpool writers, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick penning the script for Clue.
Director, James Bobin (Flight of the Conchords, Muppets Most Wanted) is currently being eyed to direct.
1985’s Clue adaptation still has a rabid fan base, and rightfully so. The Tim Curry lead ensemble is one of a kind work of comedy art. So, it will be interesting to see what a new adaptation will bring to the table.
Speaking of tables, let’s not forget that this whole thing is based on the popular, tabletop board game by the same name. So, it’s fair that another production team might have the right idea, if not a totally different one.
Reynolds is still on board to star in Clue as well, placing him in the thick of the murder mystery. Which part will he play? That is yet to be seen but we will sure as heck let you know as soon as we find out.
In the meantime, we would love to hear your casting ideas? What part should Reynolds play? Who else should Maximum Effort get involved in Clue? Let us know in the comments section.
