Ryan Reynolds gives update on possible Deadpool movie

October 25th, 2013 by bash Comments

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!

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
