'Deadpool' Movie in Active Development

'Deadpool' Movie in Active Development

Merc with the Mouth character, Deadpool, will return to the big screen as 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' spin-off and have Ryan Reynolds as its depicter once again.

A solo movie for one particular "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" mutant character, Deadpool, is being pushed forward. Splash Page MTV has come up with the story, claiming that there is official word on "Deadpool" being in active development and that the spin-off will have Ryan Reynolds reprising his role as the mutant assassin known also as Wade Wilson.

The official word on "Deadpool" movie being made came up soon after "Wolverine 2" was announced. A Fox insider reportedly informed MTV that "Deadpool" will have Lauren Shuler Donner and Marvel as the producers. Though the studio are still seeking for writers, the proposed project is said to be an exploration of the character's background, and how he goes from being a part of the Weapon X project to becoming the mask-wearing Merc with the Mouth.

Talks about Deadpool getting a spin-off treatment have made its round long before "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" hit theaters last Friday, May 1. The idea has been thrown in by producer Lauren Schuler Donner, former 20th Century Fox Studio Exec Jeff Katz and even the character's depicter himself, Ryan Reynolds. One of the post-credit scenes featuring Deadpool in "Wolverine" has also given clue that such a project was being considered.

    I agree - at the very least retain the crazy/anti-hero vibe, don't soften the character.

    This needs to be R rated. If it turns into another kiddy flick, I will spew.
