Reynolds is set to star in the film with Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick signing on to write the script.
Who will Reynolds play? We doubt he can pull off a better Colonel Mustard than Martin Mull or top Tim Curry’s performance as Wadsworth the butler.
Don’t even get us started with who could replace the rest of the cast and top the campy brilliance of Madeline Kahn and Lesley Ann Warren.
