The box-office success of Deadpool despite its R rating has given Ryan Reynolds enough clout to secure a three-picture deal with 20th Century Fox. But, as Deadline reports, the actor-producer isn’t straying too far from that franchise for the first film in that arrangement. Reynolds is reuniting with Deadpool scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who also wrote up all the swears and pithy one-liners for Deadpool 2, for a Clue adaptation.

It’s currently unclear if this is the same Clue-based project Fox and Hasbro first announced in August 2016, but Reynolds is already set to lead the film. The erstwhile Green Lantern has really taken a shine to mystery stories, as he recently signed on to star in/as Detective Pikachu.
