Could Deadpool Start Shooting This Year, With Ryan Reynolds?
It looks as if Rob Liefeld wasn’t just whistling “Dixie” when he claimed to have seen several minutes of Deadpool test footage. The Geek Files has it on good authority that the X-Men Origins: Wolverine spinoff might just start filming this year, and that Ryan Reynolds, who played Wade Wilson in Wolverine, is still attached to star.
We don’t know much about the project aside from the fact that X-Men film producer Laura Shuler Donner has said they will have some fun with Deadpool’s earlier portrayal in the Wolverine movie, which most fans say was completely out of character.
Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick penned the R-rated script, with Tim Miller attached to direct.
