Yahoo! Movies — Despite a lack in updates, Ryan Reynolds reveals that DEADPOOL isn’t totally dead in the water. The film – in development since “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” – recently gained a small bit of movement.
“[In] its current iteration the movie’s actually very small,” Reynolds revealed whilst doing press for animated snail story ‘Turbo’. “There’s minimal impact to the studio, which is the way we’re kind of presenting it to them. We’re saying ‘Look, the budget is minimal. Therefore, can we do this the way it should be done?’ Which unfortunately needs a Rated R [age certificate] or it needs those elements.”
“The script is probably available online, it leaked,” he added. “But it’s very meta, I mean the character knows he’s in a movie, he knows he’s in a comic book. He names studio executives in the script. So, it’s kind of a risky property. But, you know, we’ll see. It’s actually, within the last couple of weeks, taken a few very, very small tiptoes forward. In our lifetime? Yeah, I think so. I think if I were a betting man it’ll get made, eventually. I mean it’s just been developed to high heaven. It has great people around it, so we’ll see.”
I’d like to first see Deadpool in X-FORCE and then go solo.
