Empire have released some excerpts from their interview with producer Lauren Shuler Donner, and perhaps most the most interesting piece of information to be revealed during their chat was that Donner who is, "mindful of Reynolds' ever-growing logjam of work, added that the film would shoot in the next year or so." A lot further along than any of us realized then! Here are some of the other highlights of that interview.
She said this about the film's current status.
"We're looking for a director, yes. He's very involved, Ryan. He's working with the writers on the screenplay and it's as much as it is ours.
She had this to say about how faithful it'll be to the comics.
I'm tellin' ya, it's true to the comic. You'll see all of them. You'll see Wade Wilson, the good looking Ryan Reynolds! You'll see Deadpool in his costume and you'll see his cancer-scarred face.
Also She managed to drop some info on new X-Men sequels in development and that Fox might let Deadpool pass with an R rating probably because it's not exactly part of the X-men universe and that Deadpool will be in his own little corner doing his own little thing.
“We took the treatment to Fox and they love it… And X4 leads into X5.″ Regarding Deadpool,“It’s a total reboot… We’re either going to pretend that didn’t happen or mock it, which he could. It’s insane, it’s definitely comedy, but it’s an R script, it’s really irreverent and violent. Right away, we’re out of the X-Men world”.
So what do you guys think? Not really any new information except now we know when it's supposedly to start filming and that Ryan Reynold's is still attached.
