Ryan Reynolds is a lucky man. Not only is he set to star as interstellar cop
next summer, but he’ll be causing carnage as Marvel Comic’s
sometime in 2011 too.
Reynolds has been chatting with
about the fourth-wall breaking, anti-hero extraordinaire, who was last seen in several pieces at the end of
X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Speaking from Sundance, where Reynolds' horror flick
received rave reviews, the
star reassured Deadpool fans that the film was in safe, fanboy friendly hands.
Paul Wenick and Rhett Reese, the writers behind last years’ finest zom-com
, are currently scribbling away on the
"Tonally, they got it. 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]."
And Reynolds, the only actor currently cast in the Merc with a Mouth's solo outing, is pleased with the film's progress, as well as his own undisclosed input.
"I talk to them [Reese and Wernick] every single day. We're all very sick of each other already. It's actually a really wonderful creative trifecta — we're having a very good time."
Come March, Reese and Wernick could be getting a break from Reynolds' phone calls, since he starts shooting
in New Orleans.
Deadpool? Or Michael Barrymore's pool?
