Ryan Reynolds has been talking about the progress of a potential Deadpool movie.
During a recent press tour for his animated movie, Turbo, the actor said the potential risk to the studio was minimal due to plans to make it on a smaller budget.
“We’re saying ‘Look, the budget is minimal. Therefore, can we do this the way it should be done?’,” he said.
“Which unfortunately needs a Rated R [age certificate] or it needs those elements. The script is probably available online, it leaked. 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.”
It will be interesting to see if this gets off the ground!
