[Updated] Liam Neeson, Kyle Chandler and Mackenzie Davis up for roles in DEADPOOL 2?


DEADPOOOL 2 is in active development at 20th Century Fox with director Tim Miller, writers Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick and star Ryan Reynolds all set to return. As announced in the end credits for the first film, the sequel will see Cable make his first live-action appearance. In addition to that character, his kicka$$ ally Domino is pretty much a given as well.

Now we may have word on which actors are being looked at for the coveted role. According to Jeff Sneider on Meet the Movie Press

“There’s been a name floating around for Cable for months, hasn’t changed, don’t know if it’s changed. Didn’t make any calls about this. This was just the name that has been out there for months. So take this with a gigantic grain of salt. The biggest grain of salt your tiny little brain can imagine. The name that is floating around for Cable right now is Kyle Chandler.”

Chandler is most known for his Emmy-nominated work on ‘Friday Night Lights’ and with film roles in ‘Argo’ and ‘The Wolf Of Wall Street’.

What about Domino?

“The name for Domino, who is said to be the scene-stealer of the movie, is Mackenzie Davis.”

Davis is known for her work on AMC’s ‘Halt and Catch Fire’ including films ‘The Martian’ and ‘That Awkward Moment’.

Again, it should be noted to take this with a huge grain of salt until proven otherwise. Even if the actors are being looked at, chances are no final deals are officially in place. With production ramping up early next year though, we should get some confirmation on casting sooner rather than later.

Update: According to reliable scooper Umberto Gonzalez, 20th Century Fox doesn’t agree with Chandler as Cable and prefers a “star” to play the role. Apparently they want Liam Neeson to wield Cable’s metallic arm. But director Miller doesn’t agree.
