Screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick confirm new material for Deadpool 2 PG-13 release

October 30th, 2018 by Marc Comments

With Aquaman, Into the Spider-verse and Mary Poppins 2 all heading to cinemas this Christmas, it is easy to forget that Deadpool is returning to the big screen too.

You may recall that a PG-13 version of Deadpool 2 will be debuting to see if the character has appeal for all the family (here). And the best thing is… there will be new material in it!

 

Screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick revealed that “We definitely shot new stuff”.

Wernick said: “and recently too. After Deadpool 2 came out and we were all sitting around, we came to it less about the idea of let’s make a PG-13 movie and more, ‘Let’s talk a little bit about Deadpool.’ We were kicking around some ideas and then I think it was Ryan [Reynolds] who had the great framing device and we all  got excited and went to the studio. They said, ‘Yeah, let’s do it. Fire up the cameras.’ About two months ago we were out on soundstages shooting again. Ryan was in the suit and the gang was back together, Dave Leitch and Ryan and us having a great time and laughing. It comes together great so we’re super excited about it.”

As for who else filmed new stuff: “We can’t say,” Reese said.

But there are fears that the new version of the movie, being more family-friendly, will lose the love of the fans: “I think it’s not only going to appeal to kids but also to people who love Deadpool,” Wernick said.

“I think it’s subversive enough and fun and creative and something that only Deadpool could do. So I think it’s going to be a real joy for not only a whole new audience, but also an audience that has seen and loved the Deadpool movies.”

 

Will the new version change the story of Deadpool 2: “No, not really, not appreciably,” Reese said.

“We don’t want to mislead nor do we want to spoil,” Wernick said, “as we get closer, we’ll see what the studio will let us talk about. I wouldn’t reveal too much about it because it’ll ruin the fun for the audience.”

As with Deadpool and Deadpool 2, you have our attention…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
