    Disney and Twenty-First Century Fox are closing in on a deal, and it could come as soon as next week, according to sources familiar with the matter.

    CNBC has been reporting that Disney has held talks with the Rupert Murdoch-controlled media company to acquire its studio and television production assets, leaving Fox with its news and sports assets. Fox is also talking with CNBC parent company Comcast, but the talks with Disney have progressed more significantly.

    The deal contemplates the sale of Fox's Nat Geo, Star, regional sports networks, movie studios and stakes in Sky and Hulu, among other properties. What would remain at Fox includes its news and business news divisions, broadcast network and Fox sports.

    The enterprise value of the Fox assets in the Disney deal is seen as above $60 billion, according to sources. Current Fox shareholders would get one share of the Fox company that remains after the movie and television assets are sold plus shares of Disney in a fixed exchange ratio.
    So my question is...with Disney buying Fox...are they gonna kill the R rating on some of their movies? You know, like Deadpool? Cause man, that was TOTALLY SUCK MY BALLS.
    I would highly doubt that, given how successful Logan and Deadpool were financially and critically. At least, I hope so.

    Monopolies suck, though, so I hope this does not happen.

    Well we're in uncharted waters right now, so who knows. Disney probably won't kill the R-rating for solo Deadpool outings, but if he joins the Avengers orbit they'll tame his humor down considerably.

    Interested to see where this goes, that's for sure.
    If I told you about her, the princess without voice, what would I say?

    My guess is that they'll either put those R rated movies out under a different umbrella (I think Disney owns Touchstone or something like that) or they'll just keep the 20th Century Fox brand around and use that for the Deadpools and the Logans.

    If this goes through I certainly hope the Fox name stays since itís one of those original Hollywood studios.
