Deadpool 2 is returning to theaters this December, but not in the way you’d expect. As previously reported, the famously foul-mouthed superhero sequel is getting a second theatrical run but as a toned-down PG-13-rated Christmas version titled Once Upon A Deadpool, according to Deadline.
As teased by star Ryan Reynolds back in September, Once Upon A Deadpool will fill in the R-rated edits with a new frame narrative that rips off / pays homage to the fan-favorite film The Princess Bride, where a much, much older Fred Savage reprises his role as a bed-ridden child. However, Once Upon A Deadpool will replace Peter Falk’s kindly grandfather with Deadpool as the storyteller instead.
