Emmy winner and Arrested Development star Jason Bateman is currently in talks to helm a live-action Clue remake for Fox/Disney.
According to Deadline, Bateman may also star alongside Ryan Reynolds in the Hasbro adaptation.
Bateman and Reynolds will partner together on the script, with the latter producing the film through his Maximum Effort studio and Hasbro's AllSpark Pictures division. Deadpool co-writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick were previously reported to be writing the script.
Sunday's Emmys saw Bateman win Best Directing in a Drama Series for the “Reparations" episode of Netflix's Ozark.
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.
