The Muppets’ James Bobin now looks set to direct the long-mooted remake of Clue.

According to reports back in September, Jason Bateman was all set to direct and star in the remake of Clue, alongside Ryan Reynolds who joined the picture in 2018.

The film will be based on the 1985 original, which is itself based on the board game. It’s a board game known as Cluedo in the UK of course, the ‘o’ presumably being the sound of shock us Brits make when we discover it wasn’t Professor Plum with the candlestick in the dining room, but in fact that dastardly cad, Colonel Mustard.

Bateman, though, has now had to depart the project, due to conflicts with his hit show, Ozark. And there’s been a quick move to replace him too. James Bobin, who helmed The Muppets and last year’s terrific Dora And The Lost City Of Gold is the new choice to helm the movie.

The 1985 original also featured a great ensemble cast including Tim Curry and Christopher Lloyd, so expect some more interesting casting on this one. More will follow as we hear it.
