Ryan Reynolds has been on a bit of a roll with his latest movies and it doesn’t look like he’s going to slow down. The actor recently starred in The Adam Project, free guy and even made a surprising appearance in High-speed train. One of the next films Reynolds is expected to star in will be a live-action movie based on the hit game. Index. Index was written by cast members, frequent collaborators Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, but both retired from the film with the arrival of a new writer. According to Deadline, the film has officially added Oren Uziel (The lost city) to rework the script for Index.
James Bobin is attached to direct Index for 20th century studios with Reynolds’ Maximum Effort production. Clue will likely be a modern take on the classic thriller game, with Reynolds hilariously leading the film. It’s the second time someone’s embarked on a live-action adaptation of the classic game. The first one Index was released in 1985 with Jonathan Lynn at the helm. Index with Tim Curry, Eileen Brennen, Christopher Lloyd, Michael Mckean, Martin Mull, Madeline Khan and Lesley Ann Warren.
Reynolds has a ton of movies in development, but the one fans are most excited about has to be Dead Pool 3. While nothing is currently known about the plot of the third Deadpool movie, new details were expected to be revealed during Marvel Studios’ Hall H panel at San Diego Comic Con, but nothing has been released. Reynolds revealed, in a recent interview with Forbes, that his production company Maximum Effort will co-produce Dead Pool 3 with Marvel Studios. The actor has been a big-screen Deadpool champ for years. So it would make sense for his production company to partner with the studio on the sequel.
“I really got a crash course in the value of marketing and storytelling in this context through Deadpool,” Reynolds said, speaking to the outlet. “dead Pool taught me that necessity is the mother of invention. dead Pool, the franchise, has never had the kind of budgets and finances to work with with some of the biggest comic book properties. Two of the biggest opponents of creativity are too much time and too much money. I learned the value of character on the show through dead Pool.”
As it is Dead Pool 3 doesn’t currently have a release date, but things seem to be moving pretty quickly behind the scenes. The film will likely retain its R rating despite transferring the rights to the characters from Fox to Disney.
