“Once Upon A Deadpool” Hits Theaters This Christmas With PG-13 Cut Of The Sequel.
Once Upon A Deadpool will be Fox’s PG-13 re-release of the smash hit Deadpool 2. The film will feature some new scenes to replace the ones that couldn’t make the new PG-13 cut, opting to go with a Christmas vibe for the refitting. “Fox has been asking for a PG-13 basically since the start in 2006,” Reynolds told Deadline.
“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…”
Once Upon A Deadpool will cater to kids who are off school for the holidays, and will play for a limited release from December 12 to Christmas Eve. For every ticket sold of the Deadpool remake, $1 will go to the Fuck Cancer campaign (which is being repackaged as “Fudge Cancer” for the sake of the PG-13 audience).
Fred Savage, from The Wonder Years, will feature in the new footage which places him in a parody bedtime-story set-up from The Princess Bride, a classic film in which he was a child actor. The random tie-in will surely loan to some type of Deadpool fueled hilarity.
