Such a Deadpool thing to do.
One of the funniest movie series we've seen in ages, Deadpool is widely known for it's R-rated comedy and violent action scenes, with smartarse actor/writer/producer Ryan Reynolds playing the title character.
But surely, a movie with such rude humour could never work as a kids Christmas movie, right?
Not anymore. Reynolds told Deadline:
Fox has been asking for a PG-13 basically since the start in 2006. I’ve said no since 2006. Now, this one time, I said ‘Yes’ on two conditions. First, a portion of the proceeds had to go to charity. Second, I wanted to kidnap Fred Savage.
The second condition took some explaining…
Fred Savage will join Reynolds in new scenes for Once Upon A Deadpool in an homage to Savage’s starring role in the 1987 bedtime-story classic The Princess Bride.
For every ticket sold, $1 will go to the charity Fudge Cancer – previously known as Fuck Cancer, who have graciously changed their name to be more PG-13 friendly for the 12 days of Once Upon A Deadpool’s release.
This should be bloody good.
