OK, so Once Upon A Deadpool is really just a PG-13 re-edit of the decidedly R-rated Deadpool, with some other stuff thrown in. And it is hard to be mad at the film, when for every ticket sold $1 will be donated to star Ryan Reynolds’ charity F–ck Cancer, which is being retitled “Fudge Cancer” for the purposes of this PG-13 release. But if the other added in stuff is as good as the bit we see in this trailer for the film with Fred Savage, than it shouldn’t be too hard to pony up the cash to see this again in theaters, now should it?
Here’s the official studio synopsis –
On December 12, Deadpool 2 is back in theaters with zero F’s given.
To kick off the holiday season audiences of almost all ages will soon be able to enjoy the Merc with the Mouth’s reimagining of Deadpool 2 filtered through the prism of childlike innocence.
“Fox has been asking for a PG-13 basically since the start in 2006,” Ryan 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…”
Fred Savage will join Reynolds in new scenes for ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL in an homage to Savage’s starring role in the 1987 bedtime-story classic THE PRINCESS BRIDE. Fred remarked, “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.”
For every ticket sold, $1 will go to the charity Fudge Cancer – previously known as Fuck Cancer, who have graciously changed their name to be more PG-13 friendly for the 12 days of Once Upon A Deadpool’s release.
