Fans have been waiting anxiously for word on the possible Deadpool feature film starring Ryan Reynolds. After X-Men Origins: Wolverine hit theaters back in 2009, the Deadpool spinoff film seemed more possible than ever, yet 4 years later almost no progress has been made.
The project through 20th Century Fox had Tim Miller attached to direct from a script Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the writers of the Zombieland.
But there is good news! Reynolds was asked about the project during an interview with Total Film. He confirmed that Deadpool is currently heading to film and he revealed some details regarding the characters transition to the big screen.
“That movie is alive and kicking, and then it’s dead as a doornail. Then it’s alive and kicking and then it’s dead… it’s like the worst relationship I’ve ever had! The character knows he’s a comic-book character, he knows he’s in a film, he knows who the executives are at the studio making the movie. In the current iteration of the script, Deadpool is aware of the Wolverine movie. He doesn’t say anything disparaging about it but he does at one point play with the Deadpool action figure with some curiosity.”
There is still no word yet on when the film will begin production.
