And with RIPD being an unfamiliar concept to mainstream audiences, it will need an extra push because the concept itself sounds silly (an afterlife police department? Seems more of a TV show than a blockbuster)

I think the only weird thing here is that they sealed his mouth in the aformentioned movie, so now he's the Merc with the.....?
And it should be fun to see him mercilessly break the Fourth Wall, as is his trademark. Plus any chances of seeing Bob Agent of Hydra??
Going by the script the Wolverine movie is an actual movie in the universe Deadpool inhabits. He makes fun of it. So i wouldn't worry about his mouth being sewn up.

And alas, no Bob.

Of course, and that's fine with me.

It's just odd to see him leave hope in the air when talking about Deadpool when 5 minutes later he's contradicting it by stating that these types of things don't really happen that often...

I guess it's a good wake-up call for those who didn't know it...

I wouldn't go by that Deadpool script for anything. It was over a year ago now that it got leaked online and the film still isn't in production yet, I'd say there have been at least several re-writes by now.

I'd imagine so. But i wouldn't think much has changed. Just some of the pop culture references and jokes like the Amy Winehouse one.

Are you kidding? First of all, Fox knew it got leaked so there is no way they would sit there with that version of the script. It'd bound to be changed. Secondly, Fox are one of those studios who get multiple rewrites on scripts just as a standard practice. There might be elements or a basic structure similar to that script but don't be surprised if for the most part, it's very different.

You know, assuming the film ever actually happens.

Yea i understand that. But you don't needlessly change the entire script. I imagine the structure and story will stay the same, it'll just be polished. And like I said, I think some of the pop culture references would be updated.

I don't think a script leak would be 'needless' as far as changes go. That's pretty much worse case scenario for an unfinished script.

And yes, every writer is different so structure and story may change quite a lot. Basically, you can assume the overall story direction may change but as far as individual scenes etc, those are bound to change. It's a lot more complicated than just updating pop culture references.

Because that's the standard process for any of these big budget blockbusters. They get multiple rewrites and they get a different writer for each of those rewrites. It's a huge point of contention among Hollywood script writers, especially when some of the writers end up getting left off the credits or have most of their stuff taken out of a final draft.

Big budget blockbuster? This movie will never be a big budget blockbuster. It's already said they're making it cheap.

And i think we'd know if the guys who wrote the script with Reynolds involvement were not on board any more.

It's not that they're 'not on board', it's standard practice for any big studio film.

Whether it has a moderate budget or not, it's still clearly planned as a Fox money maker.

There are plenty of interviews with writers out there outlining the process, or you can look up various movies on IMDB and see how many writers were involved (those that got credits anyway).

To give you an example, here is the list of credited writers for First Class.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1270798/fullcredits#writers

Ashley Miller (screenplay) (as Ashley Edward Miller) &
Zack Stentz (screenplay) and
Jane Goldman (screenplay) &
Matthew Vaughn (screenplay)

Sheldon Turner (story) and
Bryan Singer (story)

That's a lot of people ACTUALLY involved, when all that every really got reported was Jane Goldman's involvment.

This Movie should remain small, with a budget somewhere between 50-100 Million. Nothing more. Just like the Blade Movies.

He didn't work on Wolverine or the finished X3.

Anyone here think with Safe House doing gangbusters at the box office, this gives Ryan Reynolds a bit more heat? And with that heat, be able to push Deadpool through to production with Fox? I was hoping Safe House did solid just for that reason.

Hope it does. Cant hurt. Denzel had a lot to do with that one, he draws in a crowd with these action thrillers. Reynolds is already Hollywood A list but Im sure he will get a bigger audience cause of this flick.

If RIPD can have a big budget and get green lit then I have no idea why FOX is lagging on Deadpool. Fingers crossed on that rumor of it shooting this year. Surprised we didnt hear more from Reynolds during Safe House publicity.

I wouldn't say Reynolds is A-List. He was on his way there, but being the face of a massive cluster **** like Green Lantern doesn't help him, even if it wasn't actually his fault.

And i think Fox is dragging their heels simply because they are probably still unsure about an R rated comic book movie that makes fun of other comic book movies and their tropes/cliches. It's quite a risky concept really.

Guess your right on the A list, depending on our definition. Dont think there are many actors in there 30's considered A list. Hes holding his own on getting the lead in huge budget flicks pretty well though. I give him 5 years to make that list. Hes not far from from it, closer then alot of other actors in their 30s.

With a budget round 50-75 mill I really dont think its that risky of a flick as others do. IN a time were a movie called Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter is a big budget mainstream movie and Battleship the board game adaptaion is coming out, an R rated smaller budget Deadpool film doesnt seem like that much of a risk. Im sure even if if it didnt make its money back in the theatres it would own video right away. No way I see it flopping. I see it profitable regardless. Even the second Ghost Rider (not R I know) which had zero positive word of mouth and tons of hate from the first film opened over 20 mill. As long as they make a good film and not B level Punisher/Ghost Rider crap they should be good. Blade and Wanted are the closet thing to compare it to I guess just cause the R rating which were all a success to some point. I think Deadpool would be a huge hit with the 18-35 demogrpahic and opening weekened would be pretty strong round 40-50 million imo. But serisously just make the ****ing film fox! This has gone on too long.

qft. How the hell did that even get made? maybe it's just because I never heard of the comic before, but was there really any sort of fanbase for that comic? it's not even that creative of a concept.

Because superhero movies have become FOX's way of making real money nowadays, no doubt they're really gnawing their teeth at the idea of a movie where kids can't force their parents to go to the movies and making money for them.

It's a sad reality but it's not unheard of. Specially with all the crap we're used to hearing from FOX's executive meddling problems in other movies. No passion or care about the movies themselves or the characters.
