Deadpool Will Break the Fourth Wall

Source: comingsoon.net

July 4, 2009

Empire chatted with Ryan Reynolds and asked him an interesting question about the upcoming "X-Men" spin-off, Deadpool, in which he'll reprise his role from the "Wolverine" movie.

Reynolds says Deadpool will breach the fourth wall: "Break the fourth wall? Oh yeah, he's got to. I want to see him break the Great Wall"... "The studio's working on a script and trying to find a director. The main goal is to make sure it stays close to the source material."

A release date has not yet been set for the film.

Deadpool Double Taps Zombieland Writers!

Source:superherohype.com

January 5, 2010

20th Century Fox is moving forward with the planned Deadpool spin-off with Ryan Reynolds reprising his role as the "merc with a mouth" from Fox's 2009 hit prequel X-Men Origins: Wolverine. According to Variety, they've hired writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the creative duo behind Sony's 2009 hit Zombieland, to pen the screenplay, the duo having already written an earlier draft of Sony's planned Venom spin-off.

No word when they plan to start filming although presumably it will be sometime after Reynolds wraps filming his leading role in Green Lantern for Warner Bros.

Reynolds Collaborates with Deadpool Writers Every Day

Source:superherohype.com

January 27, 2010

MTV talked to Green Lantern star Ryan Reynolds at the Sundance Film Festival where he revealed that he talks every day to Zombieland screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick about Wolverine spin-off Deadpool.

"Tonally, they got it," said Reynolds. "They just [understood 'Deadpool'] right off the bat. They're fans of the character and they were so excited. We couldn't have done any better [than Reese and Wernick]."

Shouldn't he be a bit more focused on Green Lantern at this point and not so concerned about what the writers are doing with Deadpool?

Just a thought ... :?

He just hyping up where the money will be made (and where there is a 1000% more entertaining movie)-- :twisted:


Green Lantern already sounds like a snorefest before it even starts.. (CG alien designs aside).

Agreed. Deadpool would be a fantastic film. As for GL, I always pictured Bruce Campbell paling Hal.

Reese and Wernick on Writing Deadpool

Source:superherohype.com

February 9, 2010

MTV talked to Zombieland screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick who are collaborating with Ryan Reynolds on the script for X-Men Origins: Wolverine spin-off Deadpool.

"We're outlining it pretty seriously right now," Reese said. "Were in the early stages."

"We just absolutely adore the character and the comic," added Wernick. "And tonally, it's right up our alley. He's the unstable, smart-ass, self deprecating guy — and they say write what you know, so [we're perfect for it]."

So what has it been like working with Reynolds? "One of the nice things about working with Ryan is that he tonally gets it — if we ever do something that is off the Deadpool path, or if it doesn't feel like Deadpool, he catches it," Reese said.

You can read more of what they said here.

Rodriguez Offered Deadpool?

Hollywood's rebel director considers a return to comic book movies.

June 14, 2010

by Max Nicholson

The Deadpool movie may be close to hiring a director.

The Playlist reports that 20th Century Fox has offered the job to writer-director Robert Rodrguez (Desperado, Sin City). This is a project that Rodriguez is considering, but of course, nothing is set in stone.

This is the second offer in five months that Fox has pitched to Rodriguez, preceded by an offer to helm the new Planet of the Apes reboot (which Rodriguez declined). But this could be a telling sign that Fox likes what they see of the director's upcoming film Machete. He also wrote and produced their upcoming Predators sequel.

Ryan Reynolds is presumably still attached to reprise his role as the title character in Deadpool, and Zombieland scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are still hard at work on finishing the screenplay. Currently, Rodriguez plans to shoot Spy Kids 4: Armageddon this summer, and Predators is hitting theaters on July 9th, with the subsequent Machete set for a September 3rd release.

Robert Rodriguez in Talks for Deadpool?

by SuperHeroHype

Jul 31st, 2010

Is the director of Sin City ready for Ryan Reynolds' "Merc with a Mouth"?

The rumors have been bubbling under for the past few weeks about whether director Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) might be called upon to direct Deadpool, the planned spin-off from last year's X-Men Origins: Wolverine with Ryan Reynolds reprising the role of the "Merc with a Mouth" he played in that movie. Last week at Comic-Con, Rodriguez was asked by MTV about the project and he confirmed he had received the script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Zombieland) but wasn't sure if he would direct or not. Just one week later and The L.A. Times is reporting that Rodriguez is now in active negotiations to direct the movie and that it would likely happen after he finishes Spy Kids 4: Armageddon, which he's currently shooting for release next year. Rodriguez does have a lot on his plate right now with Predators still in theaters and Machete coming out later this summer, and he has a few other original ideas he's been developing. One presumes that one way to stay in the public eye and maintain his relationship with 20th Century Fox would be to take on a high-profile superhero movie like Deadpool, which combines humor and violence, two things Rodriguez has made his specialty. The question is whether he could make the movie PG-13 or 20th Century Fox might allow Rodriguez to do what he does best when not having to soften things up for a younger audience. (Of course, having made four PG movies and working on a fifth, it's not like Rodriguez would have problem making a movie that falls somewhere in between.)

If they don't scrap any association with the Wolverine movie, then there's no way I'll go to see it. That movie was ill-conceived at best.

Deadpool Doubts

Rodriguez may not be able to helm it after all.

August 30, 2010

by Jim Vejvoda

20th Century Fox wants Machete man Robert Rodriguez to direct their Deadpool film starring Ryan Reynolds as the merc with the mouth, but the filmmaker suspects scheduling conflicts may prevent him from helming the Marvel movie.

Rodriguez has only read and the enjoyed the script for Deadpool. His next project is likely to be Spy Kids 4 starring Jessica Alba. As for directing Deadpool, Rodriguez informed Deadline, "We haven't really gotten into the discussion, but they are trying to make a certain small window that's going to be tough because of Spy Kids. ... If they push it back, it would be a lot better for me."

However, Reynolds' availability to film Deadpool within Rodriguez's time frame is also an issue, as he's supposed to shoot Safe House with Denzel Washington in early 2011.

Deadpool's Nasty Burger

Reynolds talks up his other superhero gig.

September 14, 2010

by Scott Collura

How many superheroes can one guy play in a lifetime? A lot, a whole lot, if Ryan Reynolds has anything to say about it. He's already done Deadpool and the Marvel vampire hunter Hannibal King, he's got Green Lantern under his belt, he's campaigned in the past for the Flash, and now he continues to talk up Deadpool's getting his own standalone film.

Hero Complex spoke to Reynolds about the project, which is reportedly still in the works despite the actor's very busy GL schedule.

"It goes in such a different direction than a superhero movie usually goes," Reynolds says of the Deadpool script. "It's a nasty piece of work. It's just based in so much emotional filth, completely. It's like Barfly if it were a superhero movie. It sort of treads into the world of an emotionally damaged person. I always say that Deadpool is a guy in a highly militarized shame spiral… It's so different than the superhero movies to date, it departs so far from that."

The script is by Zombieland's Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and according to Reynolds it requires establishing "moral flexibility" early on for its title character, the so-called Merc with a Mouth.

"There's a gamble to it -- you're going to lose a few people right at the beginning but you take the gamble and know that eventually you're going to win them back," he says. "You won't lose the hard-core fans of the character, they already know who he is. We have to play to a broader audience than that. As an actor you have to be willing to do something like … back in Vancouver we used to call it a [nasty] burger. 'You gotta eat the [nasty] burger to get to the cookies.'"

So say we all, Ryan.

Ryan Reynolds May Choose Between Deadpool and R.I.P.D.

by SuperHeroHype

Sep 21st, 2010

Both projects will likely happen, but not with Reynolds

Increasingly in the spotlight, actor Ryan Reynolds revealed today to i09 that his busy schedule may prevent him from appearing in both Deadpool and R.I.P.D.

"...because it has an actor, and because these films have interested directors, it's obviously likely that they'll both get made," said Reynolds, "But I think it would be more likely that only one of them gets made with me."

Reynolds is slated to next shoot a film called The Change-Up, a body-swapping comedy where he plays opposite Jason Bateman. After that, he's committed to Safe House, playing a CIA Agent charged with protecting a criminal witness (Denzel Washington) after their safe house is attacked. It would likely be after production on both projects that Reynolds would tackle either of the two comic book adaptations.

Though he appeared hesitant to comment at this stage, it is likely that the already-proposed Green Lantern sequel will make Reynold's schedule even more complicated in the near future.
