Could It Be Jason Bateman with the Directors Chair In The Study for the Remake of Clue

There are a lot of films that came out of the 80’s that seem to have been forgotten, or at the very least aren’t a part of the conversation. I’m reticent to say that they’re “forgotten” films but at the very least they become overshadowed to the point of them being sort of left behind. I feel like this is most prevalent in comedies. Unless it was a stone cold classic or came from the Mel Brooks or Monty Python camp, it gets left by the wayside. One particular film that I’m referencing is the underrated comedy gem CLUE. The mere thought of building an entire 90-minute narrative focused around the concept of a board game seems baffling at first. Yes, murder mysteries are a dime a dozen especially during this time frame so it wasn’t a wholly foreign concept. The difficulty in adapting this property was not in the type of story it was telling but trying to wrangle together the many different outcomes and endings you could arrive at while playing CLUE in a single 90-minute film with a definitive and conclusive ending. Well they managed to do just that and the movie works like gangbusters. It’s really an amazing film and deserves to be watched by as many people possible.



All this to say that today news broke that not only are they actively working on a CLUE remake, but they’ve attached a couple of really funny dudes to the proceedings. Jason Bateman is in talks to direct and star in the forthcoming remake and he’s bringing along with him Ryan Reynolds. This is amazing news. Jason Bateman is a comedy legend and his recent body of directorial work goes a long way to showing us that this film is in very safe hands. It’s also been a very long time since Ryan Reynolds has starred in a film that didn’t feature a foul mouthed 4th wall breaking merc with a mouth or some sort of action-based comedy so this is definitely very exciting news.  That’s all we have right now for you as that this story literally just broke a few hours ago. As we get in the details, we promise them to share.

I suppose my story begins(as most do) on the day of my birth. I mean, i’d like to sit here and tell you about the ticker tape parade that was thrown in my honor, or that my being vaginally farted into the world signaled a time of unbridled peace and love throughout the galaxy, but i will do my best to try and be humble about my epic origins. Truth is my real origin is as ordinary as apple pie. I was hobbled together from various body parts of criminals on death row who opted to be organ donors. I suppose you could say I’m the Bizarro six million dollar man (but judging by my appearance you couldn’t tell they spent more than a few shillings on me). In between being chased by townsfolk with pitchforks and torches opposed to the “abomination” of my existence i have developed a passion for writing. The only thing that can match such lofty desires would be a lifelong passion for film. I mean I’m quite nerdy about lots of things (video games, comic books, music, etc…) but cinema in all its shiny golden splendor has captured my attention more than anything else. It’s something I try to share with the world at large, as much as possible. I figure if i can find the magic in such things, maybe i can help others do so as well. I’ve written quite a few poems(mostly about my first few years as a dime store knockoff Mary Shelly creation) but have stuck to mostly movie reviews. I am quite elated to be able to relate my thoughts and opinions on all things film with those who take the time to read them. I hope to have a positive impact here on the site and am looking forward to not only working with the staff currently in place but being able to reach a wider audience as well. P.S. If some of my work comes off a bit sloppy and meandering, its just because the doctor responsible for the stitch job on my cranial cavity didn’t do that great job and my brain has fallen out of the hole in my head they used to pump blood into. Cheers Mates!!
