Ryan Reynolds could not be a superhero and an undead cop at the same time. The actor, who is attached to star in "Deadpool" and "R.I.P.D.", has revealed that he probably will have to choose between the two. "I think it would be more likely that only one of them gets made with me," he tells io9 when asked which one he will do earlier.
Reynolds will likely get a problem to take a pick since he is interested in both "Deadpool" and "R.I.P.D." "They're both movies I'm interested in, they're both movies that are in fast-track development. But I never say I'm doing a movie until I break for lunch the first day. Because it's such a crapshoot, this industry. Everything's so fickle and so contingent on so many factors, aside from just an actor," he explains. "And because it has an actor, and because these films have interested directors, it's obviously likely that they'll both get made."
But before he makes either "Deadpool" or "R.I.P.D.", Reynolds has two other projects lined up for him. He shares, "I shoot a movie called 'The Change-Up' next. It's kind of like an R-rated comedy, and right after that I start on a thriller called 'Safe House' with Denzel Washington. And then, after that is where one of those two movies will hopefully fall."
In "Deadpool", Reynolds is projected to take the titular character which he has portrayed before in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine". No director has been attached to the action movie which will serve as another "X-Men" spin-off.
Meanwhile, "The Proposal" actor could be seen as a cop who has just died and then works on the Rest in Peace department in "R.I.P.D." The action comedy has tapped Robert Schwentke to direct.
Reynolds recently completed the production of "Green Lantern" which is set to be released in the U.S. on June 17, 2011.
