Deadpool Won't Let Fred Savage Cuss in New Promo For ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL
We’ve got a new promo spot for Once Upon A Deadpool for you to watch today that makes sure audiences know that the movie is safe for Grandmas and approved for teens, who have probably already seen the R-rated version of the film.
The new promo features a bit of new footage involving Fred Savage, and it includes Deadpool censoring him. I love the concept behind the PG-13 version of Deadpool II and I can’t help but be excited to see this new version of the movie!
Mixing together The Princess Bride and Deadpool is just brilliant!
Here’s the synopsis:
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.
Once Upon A Deadpool hits theaters on December 12th.
