It’s no surprise that we’re excited for the upcoming Deadpool film (check out our guest spot on it here,) but the announcement today that the film has already been green-lit for a sequel.
The folks over at The Hollywood Reporter brought the news today that the sequel has already been greenlit by the studio in charge of the film, 20th Century Fox. Both screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are on board and working on the script for the film.
No reports have come in about the director position, held now by Tim Miller. The Hollywood Reporter did state that Fox has the intent to keep the creative team behind Deadpool together, which leaves us to hope that brings Miller and the mouthy lead, Ryan Reynolds, into the second film.
Deadpool opens this Friday, February 12th, and you bet that we’ll be there to see it.
