A DEADPOOL Sequel has Already Been Greenlit By Fox!
I've got some great news for all you Deadpool fans out there! Fox is so confident that Deadpool is going to do well at the box office that they are already in the process of developing a sequel!
According to THR, Deadpool screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are currently writing a script for the sequel which has already received a greenlight from the studio. I'm honestly kind of surprised by this news. I mean, I was hoping that Deadpool 2 would happen, but I wasn't expecting it to happen this fast. I thought for sure that they'd wait to see how the film did until after it opened, especially since it's an R-rated superhero film.
Tim Miller hasn't officially signed on to direct the sequel yet, but according to the report, Fox is looking to keep the Deadpool creative team together to give us an awesome sequel. Since Ryan Reynolds said he never wants to stop playing the anti-hero, you can bet your ass he'll be back as well.
Miller has already been talking about the sequel and what he would like to see in it. One of those things in the inclusion of Deadpool's frenemy Cable in which he explains: "If we don’t put Cable in ‘Deadpool 2,’ I think we’ll be run out of town on a rail." So it looks like we can expect to see Cable!
The R-rated action comedy is set to be released this week on February 12th, and now not only am I excited to see the first movie, but I'm also excited to see the sequel! To think... this al started because someone leaked that Deadpool test footage.
