Splash talks Deadpool and Ryan Reynolds with writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Zombieland)
I can’t wait for this one!!! Our previous posts on Deadpool and Ryan Reynolds here.
...“We’re outlining it pretty seriously right now,” explained Rhett Reese who — along with partner Paul Wernick — is red-hot after writing “Zombieland,” which just hit DVD. “We’re in the early stages.”
“We just absolutely adore the character and the comic,” explained Wernick. “And tonally, it’s right up our alley. He’s the unstable, smart-ass, self deprecating guy — and they say write what you know, so [we’re perfect for it].”…
…“What’s great about Ryan is that he’s been the keeper of the Deadpool flame for many years, he’s loved the character since forever; he lives it and breathes it,” Reese said of some of the specific ideas Reynolds has brought up to them. …
“The movie is going to kick ass,” Wernick said, confident of the end result of their collaboration. “It’s going to be great.”
“It’s not going to be your father’s superhero movie, or even your older brother’s superhero movie,” added Reese. “It’s definitely going to be irreverent and fun, and we owe a lot to that character, because it’s a wonderful character.”
Frakkin A! Perfect!
