The Deadpool movie seems to be turning heads indeed, the movie itself was barely released a week ago and already it’s enjoying massive critical and commercial success and smashing a fair few box office records in the process. Wade Wilson now holds the record the biggest Febuary opening weekend in history, the merc with a mouth would be pleased.
So it should come as no surprise that while the follow up movie has already been confirmed, the script for the superhero sequel is already ‘well underway’.
Ryan Reynolds has been reported saying, during a podcast with Empire magazine “We are on a script, we are well into a script.”
Since Deadpool 2 has received a green light from 20th century Fox, it looks like returning screen writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are neck-deep in penning the character’s return to the big screen.
While we have heard nothing of director Tim Miller’s return, reports indicate that Fox are keen to keep the original creative team together.
Deadpool is in theatres right now, so if you haven’t already, get your buttocks down to your local picture house and get it seen.
