News broke in January that Deadpool 2 co-writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick were re-uniting with Ryan Reynolds to reboot Clue, a film based on the murder mystery board game of the same name. Wernick has now teased the possibility that the film might, like Deadpool, shoot for an R-rating.
“Don’t be surprised if Clue is an R-rated…potentially” Wernick told MTV.

Reese added a bit about the writing team’s process on the movie, saying, “It will have elements of [the original movie], but it’s important that we don’t try and just rehash it. We want to build on it. We want to take some of what makes it fun and funny, but then we want to do our own thing. It’s about finding that balance. Hopefully we don’t upset the Clue-hounds because there are a lot of them apparently. We didn’t realize this until we signed up.”
The first adaptation of the Hasbro board game Clue was released in 1985 with Tim Curry in the lead role and was rated PG. Curry played Wadsworth, the Butler upon whom the task of solving an elaborate murder was foisted. Clue is unique in that the film has no true ending. Three separate endings for the film were produced. At the time of the movie’s theatrical release, the different endings were sent out to various theaters. All three endings were only made available to audiences in the film’s home release.

Few details about Reynolds’ Clue reboot are known, and there’s currently no set release date. Reynolds is, however, expected to star in the film.
