Once Upon a Deadpool is Deadpool 2 in a PG-13 wrapper

As for the actor's first condition, some of the proceeds for Once Upon a Deadpool, which will have a limited engagement in select theaters from December 12th through Christmas Eve, will be going to charity. While some have seen this as a quick cash grab, there are some altruistic motives that come with this toned-down release.

"Because it's the season of giving, we will also be giving $1 for every ticket sold to F-ck Cancer, which will be renamed Fudge Cancer just for this limited time and campaign", Reynolds told Deadline. And what better time to feel charitable than the holidays.

While this may have just been a fun project concocted by Reynolds and writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, it sounds like the studio is genuinely embracing this as a way to test Deadpool as a PG-13 franchise...which kind of just makes me want to support the film even less, but I guess, charity. That should give you an idea of how much had to be cut out to secure the PG-13 rating.

There were some reports that The CliffsofMoher appeared distressed and sweaty prior to the jump. "He's really sweating up badly". It could have been worse, Ryan [Moore] could have taken a fall off him, someone could have been seriously injured".

The original R-rated cut has been edited to earn a PG-13 rating and make it watchable for younger teens who are on a holiday break from school and not quite old enough to have seen the R-rated version on their own (or courageous enough to sneak in, but we didn't say that). Sound familiar? Well, that's because you've probably seen an nearly identical scene from 1987's The Princes Bride, which then-child star Savage starred in.

"Fox has been asking for a PG-13 basically since the start in 2006". For most people, a Deadpool movie without violence and swearing is no Deadpool movie at all, so it'll be interesting to see how Once Upon a Deadpool performs at the box office. "I've said no since 2006". The first movie's $783 million worldwide haul, combined with Deadpool 2's final global tally of $734 million, proved that not all superhero movies had to meet the PG-13 requirement. But in reality, it all has to do with the PG-13 film that will be released soon. According to Reynolds, this was one of his two prerequisites for allowing a PG-13 cut of the film to move forward. Specifically, the one and only Fred Savage will reprise his bed-ridden role from The Princess Bride. "The second condition took some explaining..." Well I got good news for you.

"The Merc with a Slightly Cleaner Mouth" is hitting theaters in December.
