Deadpool, the Merc with the mouth, who had little use of it in his first foray into live action movie, will thankfully get some good people working with him. Beyond Ryan Reynolds playing the role of Deadpool himself, the movie’s screenplay writers just might be Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Who are they? The writers of Zombieland, so there’s a little more promise.
Deadpool is known for being a very witty character, who loves breaking the fourth wall. We saw a little of the former in the X-men Origins movie, and a little bit of the latter in one of the endings but it was hardly the best introduction or use of the character. Thankfully it’s already been said that this movie will be a reboot for the character, with Reese and Wernick saying they’re going to stay true to the character. Fourth wall, you are going DOWN!
The biggest problem now lies with in when the movie will shoot. Reynolds is working on two comic book movies right now. Deadpool and Green Lantern, with Green Lantern being shot first. Deadpool’s production will definitely start after Green Lantern’s but It’s hard to say how long that will take. Either way, I can’t wait to see some production shots of either one.
