Reynolds has been involved in the remake of the 1985 movie since January of 2018.
The news about Bateman’s involvement in the film comes days after he grabbed the Emmy for Best Directing in a Drama Series for “Ozark.” (RELATED: Jason Bateman Once Again Proves How Awesome He Is In Incredible SAG Awards Speech)
The original “Clue” flopped at the box office in 1985, but went on to become a fan favorite.

I used to play the board game Clue all the time growing up, and it’s so much fun. With both Reynolds and Bateman starring in it, the film is sure to be extremely good.
We’ll have to see who else gets cast for all the different characters, but we all know the only one that matters is Colonel Mustard.
If Bateman is directing, then we should end up seeing something pretty special.
