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.

MTV-Splash!:

...“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!

Deadpool & X-Men updates from Shuler-Donner…

Finally! Some word!!!

Wade-Wilson-Deadpool-x-men-origins-wolverine-4782040-1280-853

NewsinFilm has the scoop courtesy of an interview with Empire:

…Shuler-Donner confirms Hugh Jackman will be headed to Japan to shoot on location for X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2, or whatever the title will eventually be.  The comic book storyline centers on the clawed mutant falling for Mariko Yashida, the heiress to the Yakuza crime family.

“Wolverine will be fighting in a different style to what we’ve seen before,” she said, indicating a battle between him and Mariko’s father, Shingen Yashida.  It will involve “samurai, ninja, katana blades, different forms of martial arts — mano-a-mano, extreme fighting.” This plot also suggests a possible showdown with mutant supervillain Silver Samurai, but maybe I’m just stretching it.  After all, who doesn’t want to see mutant ninjas?..

Highlights from the Empire interview (go read the whole thing!!!):

On Deadpool: “I don’t see it as a problem that Ryan [Reynolds] is also playing Green Lantern. I mean, look at Harrison Ford – he was in Stars Wars and Indiana Jones at the same time and everyone was fine with that. Green Lantern could not be more different to Wade Wilson. Green Lantern is a guy who finds a ring and is thrust into this world, much like Spider-Man. Wade Wilson is a bad ass, a wise-cracking mercenary, who will go out and kill anyone for money. But the thing about him is that, underneath it all, and he wouldn’t want you to know this, sometimes he’s not such a bad ass after all.”

On Wolverine 2: “It’s actually the story we wanted to use for the first Wolverine film, but [Fox head honcho] Tom Rothman preferred to set the character up with an origin story first. ”

On X-Men: First Class: “We want it to be like the recent, darker Potters. It should not be a kiddie movie: we’re in the X-Men world so you can’t suddenly change the tone. The First Class comics are really fun — they’re funnier than any other comics I’ve read. Basically in each one the kids are fighting strange villains, sometimes it’s aliens, sometimes it’s monsters. I want to get a flavour of that world.”

More on Deadpool:

“I want to ignore the version of Deadpool that we saw in Wolverine and just start over again. Reboot it. Because this guy talks, obviously, and to muzzle him would be insane….

INTERVIEW CONTINUES AFTER THE BREAK:

FemaleFirst.uk:

You’ve been a fan of Deadpool for a long time. How much did you want the part?

I’ve been a fan of Deadpool for almost a decade. I was first introduced to it by my brother. Then I gradually followed it for a few years after that. I saw one of the comics a few years ago where Deadpool referred to himself as a cross between a Sharpe and Ryan Reynolds.

I just thought that was the coolest thing I had ever heard. So when I heard about the movie I knew I was going to do the film, even if I had to kill some studio head’s pets. A few years ago I was talking to Fox about possibly doing a Deadpool standalone movie.

I think they found it to be a little too complicated to try to tackle. Specifically because he’s a cult favorite. He’s not a mainstream character. So what better way to introduce him than in this movie?

I heard about six months before this went into production that they were thinking about putting Deadpool into this movie, but it wasn’t sure. Then kind of at the last minute they called and said, ‘We’re doing it! Are you in?’ And I said, ‘Well, of course I am, but I’m starring in two other movies, I don’t know how I’m going to do it.’

So they shot the whole film, and in the reshoots they shot me for the first time. This was why people thought they were adding more Deadpool, but they weren’t, I hadn’t shot any footage up to that point because I was too busy making these other films. Which are good problems to have.

Any idea who wrote that line about you in the comic?

You know, I don’t know who wrote that particular issue. It’s had multiple writers over the years. I’ve got the panel on my wall in a frame, maybe I should find out. And thank him. Or her. You never know, equal opportunity.

You take on many diverse roles. How do you decide what you’re going to do?

I’ve been lucky. I can go from one genre to another and it’s not a huge issue. People used to do that. Jimmy Stewart, Cary Grant, they’d jump all over the place. I feel Hugh does that pretty well.

He’s as comfortable on a Broadway stage as he is with claws and a tank top. Mostly I just consider myself lucky. I don’t have a specific rhyme or reason as to why I think it is, but it’s probably because I haven’t had astronomical success in one genre. If I had done Spider-Man, it would probably be tougher to jump into Adventureland or something.

Do you have a preference towards a specific type of film?

No. I love movies, man. Totally. In some ways it’s easier to do something like this than it is a comedy. Because for a comedy I feel like you need a whole orchestra around you. There’s a timing, a musicality to it. It’s a science, and there’s something very interesting about that. But this is just fun.

They taped your mouth up at the end, right?

Yeah, I wasn’t happy about that.

But I’ll bet everyone else was!

I think so! It certainly served the story. But that is where they detoured a bit from the origins. I mean, Deadpool is the ‘Merc with the Mouth.’ It took a long time. It took four hours just to get it on, and four more hours to get it off. For some people, that’s an entire work day.

People that wear loafers, typically. But it sucked to eat lunch and that sort of thing. I would snort a steak. I would just lay it down like it was the 80’s and go for it. No, we’d have to cut it open and it required a PA to feed it to me.

How many days of shooting was that?

In the Deadpool makeup it was a couple of weeks. My skin was not loving that after a while. It’s a pretty awful experience getting that on and off each day. If we ever did a Deadpool movie, the mask would relieve some of that issue, but I would never want to be in that makeup more than three days in a row.

MiM here- they ARE doing that movie and he HAS been signed 🙂 see this blurb from REELZ:

Yesterday, more X-film news was spread via twitter thanks to Rob Liefeld, the co-creator of Marvel Comics’ Deadpool, including the fact that the “Merc with a Mouth” will appear in costume and that Ryan Reynolds, who recently signed on to play Green Lantern in a competing production, will be revisiting his X-Men Origins: Wolverine role of Wade “Deadpool” Wilson in the solo film.

Great Deadpool movie meeting! Lauren Schuler Donner and her team are headed in the right direction!

Deadpool movie checklist- DP in costume-check! Breaking 4th wall-check! Loads of killing-double check!

Deadpool movie- YES! Ryan Reynolds is on board!!!

Liefeld also broke the news that another one of his X-Men creations, Cable, might receive his big screen debut.

Also excited to discuss possibilities of Cable in future X-films!!!
