"Deadpool" Sequel in Motion, Screenwriters to Return
Tom Tykwer, along with Andy and Lana Wachowski, have come together to co-write/direct the adaptation of David Mitchell’s time-jumping 2004 novel. They’ve assembled a very large ensemble of talented performers to take on multiple roles in the film, and today we learn they’ve added one more: Hugh Grant.
The news comes from Variety, although there’s no word on which role or roles he’ll be playing. The actor joins a cast that already includes Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Susan Sarandon, Jim Broadbent, Jim Sturgess and Ben Whishaw.
The trade paper also confirms a couple of other previously unreported cast members, including Keith David, David Gyasi, Zhou Xun and Doona Bae.
