Ryan Reynolds has become on of the most sought after actors in Hollywood, and he's got a full plate of films that's going to be keeping him busy for as long as he wants. Obviously he won't be able to do them all because the studios making the films have schedules they have to stick to. These schedules are most likely going to conflict with one another. Reynolds is currently is in a situation like this where he's going to have to make a choice. He's been cast in both Deadpool and R.I.P.D. Both of these films are going to shoot around the same time, and in a recent interview with io9 he say's that he's going to have to chose one or the other.
People sort of ask this question, like I have any say in the matter. They're both movies I'm interested in, they're both movies that are in fast-track development. But I never say I'm doing a movie until I break for lunch the first day. Because it's such a crapshoot, this industry. Everything's so fickle and so contingent on so many factors, aside from just an actor. And because it has an actor, and because these films have interested directors, it's obviously likely that they'll both get made. But I think it would be more likely that only one of them gets made with me.
I hope to hell the guy picks Deadpool! I think he's the only chance this movie has got at actually being a good, true to the comics Deadpool movie.
The next film Reynolds stars in will be the R-rated comedy The Change Up, and after that he will star along side Denzel Washington in the thriller Safe House. After he makes those two films he'll either end up making Deadpool or R.I.PD..
What movie would you like to see Reynolds take on?
