Deadpool and Detective Pikachu actor Ryan Reynolds has announced he will be working with Nacelle to bring back Biker Mice from Mars.

The wacky cartoon, which ran for three seasons in the '90s, focused on a trio of anthropomorphic mice – Throttle, Vinnie and Modo – as they escaped a war on Mars before defending Earth from the evil that destroyed their homeland.

Created by Rick Ungar, the series attracted some big-name voice acting talent, such as Mark Hamill, Rob Paulsen, Dorian Harewood, Michael Dorn, Kath Soucie, Jim Cummings, Neil Ross, Jeff Bennett, Russi Taylor, CCH Pounder and Malcolm McDowell. It also featured Beverly Hills, 90210 stars Tori Spelling, Jason Priestley, Luke Perry and Brian Austin Green.

The show was first revived in 2006, and now it's coming back for more with Reynolds set to co-producer alongside Nacelle.

In a statement (via Deadline), Reynolds said: "Some people know that I am a motorcycle enthusiast, so it was only natural for us to jump on board Biker Mice from Mars.

"Maximum Effort and Fubo look forward to putting a new spin on this cult classic with our friends at Nacelle."

Maximum Effort is Reynolds' production company, while Fubo is a streaming service that mostly focuses on sports, but just launched a channel dedicated to Maximum Effort.

Reynolds announced back in June that the channel would carry six hours of Welsh language content every week thanks to a partnership deal with long-running Welsh channel S4C.

His decision to help promote the language follows his purchase of Wrexham AFC, the third-oldest professional football club in the world.

The Welcome to Wrexham documentary series follows Reynolds and Rob McElhenney as they try and turn the club's fortunes around. A release date for the second season has just been announced.
