The only problems I see are if they want to retell the origin of Cyclops and if they want to use Deadpool again. But with a good writer, it can be solved easily without ignoring what happened in Origins.
I doubt they will really want to retell the origin of Cyclops, and if they want to use him in some future X-Men film, they still can. Cyclops was recruited by Xavier in X-Men Origins: Wolverine afterall, so they really don't have to work much magic to make it happen.

As far as Deadpool is concerned, this is about the one exception where I don't care if a future Deadpool movie keeping X-Men Origins: Wolverine in continuity or not. Deadpool is just as much an independent source material as it is attached to the X-Men material. Deadpool has his own source material, and isn't just a spinoff property of the X-Men universe. They could completely disregard his appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine in a future Deadpool movie, and I won't be worried about it one bit, as it will probably be its own world anyways independent of the X-Men film universe.
