SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE On Digital February 26 & On 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack On March 19

Ryan Reynolds To Star In Clue Reboot

Thanks in no small part to Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds has a lot more clout these days, especially at Fox. He's parlaying that into a first-look film deal between his production company, Maximum Effort and the studio. The first title in his sights? The long-gestating new movie version of board game Clue.

The mystery title where players must figure out the suspect, locale and murder weapon was adapted into a comedy in 1985 that starred Tim Curry and Madeline Kahn.

Universal, under its deal with Hasbro's Allspark Pictures arm had been developing a new version for years, with no success. In 2016, the game company snatched the rights back and set up the Fox attempt. Now Reynolds will produce and potentially star in the movie, which makes us think the comic element will still be strong with this one. Another clue – sorry, couldn't resist – is the actor bringing aboard Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.

It sounds like Reynolds is getting more and more into the mystery-solving game, between this and Detective Pikachu, in which he's also starring. Before that film arrives, though, he'll be back in quippy, deadly form as Wade Wilson in Deadpool 2, due out on 16 May this year.

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.

Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore; the two become fast friends…
