LOS ANGELES: Hollywood actor Ryan Reynolds made a major revelation recently in relation to the 'Deadpool' franchise which has left fans gravely disappointed.

Known for playing the titular character in the franchise, Reynolds revealed in an interview that he was involved with writing a script for a Christmas-themed film in the franchise, as per The Hollywood Reporter.

He was in talks with Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the co-writers of the inaugural film of the franchise as well as its 2018 sequel.

While the screenplay was completed, the proposed film never took to the production floors.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Reynolds said that the film 'got lost' during the merger of Fox with Disney and 'never got made'.

Reynolds portrayed Deadpool in a Christmas-themed fashion earlier.
