Legendary television writer Norman Lear recently renewed the overall deal he has with Sony. The deal is set to take Lear into his 100th year on this planet of ours.
Variety published a feature about the 97-year-old Lear, but it was just a small part of that feature that set the ol’ internet on fire today. In it there is a quote from Sony Pictures Entertainment chairman and CEO Tony Vinciquerra, who says that some “very famous people” have approached Sony with hopes of remaking the 1987 fairy tale classic The Princess Bride, which was executive produced by Lear. You can see what he had to say below.
A PG-13 Deadpool may sound like the Merc with a Mouth is selling out, but as Ryan Reynolds has said, Once Upon A Deadpool is all for a good cause. And yet, some may not believe it. Namely Fred Savage, who appears in the film strapped to a bed against his will by Deadpool.
So since they have a lot of time to kill, Savage wants to get to the truth about why Deadpool is doing this and why he chose to have a Princess Bride theme to tell a revised version of Deadpool 2, which was released earlier this year. Check out the video, dubbed “Savage Questions,” below.
A PG-13 Deadpool 2 may sound like a quick cash grab, but star Ryan Reynolds assures that it’s being made for very good reasons. And after all of the hype building up to its release, we now have our first look at Once Upon A Deadpool, starring Reynolds reading to a much older Fred Savage who is reprising his character from The Princess Bride. What happens next will have Deadpool question if his movies are truly Marvel movies. Check out the trailer here below.
Remember that PG-13Deadpool 2 that was officially announced when 20th Century Fox did some major schedule shifting? Well, it looks like it won’t be called Deadpool 2; instead, it will be going by a new title: Once Upon A Deadpool. More on the report, below.
