This is a fairy tale that gives zero F's.

To kick off the holidays, Twentieth Century Fox presents ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL. The originally R-rated DEADPOOL 2 has been revamped, renamed and re-released in theaters for a limited run with a PG-13 rating. The only f-word in this film is Family.

"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 added scenes for ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL as an obvious nod 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 fittingly renamed charity Fudge Cancer
