DEADPOOL starts filming in March

The Deadpool movie is finally, finally happening. Years of false starts, scripts, development and trying to erase the memory of X-Men Origins: Wolverine have finally come together to give the merc with a mouth the big screen debut that he so richly deserves. Of course, even saying just that is an invitation for disaster. But the Deadpool movie has one other thing going for it: A proper date to start shooting scenes and taking names.

Deadpool

Starring Ryan Reynolds as a sociopathic assassin with the face of roadkill pizza, a superb healing factor that enables him to bounce back from any injury and a heart of memetic gold, Deadpool will begin filming this March in Vancouver, Canada. It’s a risky property for FOX, but after Disney and Marvel struck it big with Guardians Of The Galaxy last year, anything is possible with the right cast and crew.

Per Global News, Deadpool’s filming location also happens to be the home town of Reynolds, as well as the headquarters to a number of a previous X-Men productions. Visual Effects veteran Tim Miller will direct the film, which currently has a release date of February 2, 2016 pencilled in.

Deadpool will also be an official part of the X-Men universe, so it looks like my dream of seeing Hugh Jackman stab Ryan Reynolds might finally come true. I hope.

    Really looking forward to this. Say what you will about Ryan Reynolds but his part in Wolverine and Green lantern was more of a horrible script issue.

        When it comes to Green Lantern, it’s more studio than director. Martin Campbell famously had most of is his decisions on the movie overruled, with every exec and his dog dictating what they wanted in the movie and how it should be done.

          “MORE GIGANTIC GREEN FISTS” yelled yet another studio executive who was drunk with power.

      IIRC, an earlier draft of the script had Deadpool being completely aware of the fact that he was in a pretty crappy movie previously. This would be an awesome way of breaking the fourth wall, much like he does in the comics.

        I remember that. That is the reason why I hope that they keep that part of the script!
