With enthusiastic reviews, a projected $65 million opening, and tons of fans clamoring to see it, is it really surprising that Fox would want to move forward with a Deadpool sequel?
The Hollywood Reporter stated earlier today that Fox has the movie’s writers, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, hard at work on the (already greenlit) sequel script. THR also stated that Tim Miller, the movies director, is currently not signed on to helm the sequel. Although Fox is supposedly set on “keeping the creative team together.”
Deadpool will arrive in theaters on February 12, 2016.
