The good people at The Hollywood Reporter are whispering that FOX is on board for a sequel to its hitting-theaters-now Marvel-product “Deadpool”. This is joyous news to Producer/Lead Ryan Reynolds who has been working on a follow up script with writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
“Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life…”
Box office predictions have been healthy for “Deadpool”, and Fox is assuming the movie going public will show up to see their chatty fourth-wall-breaking vigilante. Lets hope the butts hit the seats over the next few weeks, as Deadpool part deux is rumored to already be in development.
