Ryan Reynolds Teases With “Once Upon A Deadpool” Poster - Ryan Reynolds is having too much Deadpool fun.
The film franchise’s star threw a poster for “Once Upon A Deadpool” up on Twitter on Friday that got everyone’s attention. It features Deadpool wearing a Santa hat and a smiling Fred Savage on a reindeer. Not kidding. The scenes with Savage pay homage to the actor's role in 1987's ”The Princess Bride” where the actor, as a young boy, was told a bedtime story. Reynolds will be kidnapping Savage in Once Upon a Deadpool in order to place him in a similar, bedtime story situation.
In case you didn’t know a PG-13 version of the R rated “Deadpool 2” is coming to theaters December 12 through the 24. Did we mention that one dollar of every ticket sale will go to the temporarily renamed “Fudge Cancer” charity.
The two stars had fun promoting the movie and charity. Reynolds said that after much badgering he caved to a PG-13 version 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..."
Savage shot back "While my participation in this film was anything but voluntary. I am happy to learn that Fudge Cancer will be the beneficiary of this shameless cash grab."
