DEADPOOL Screenwriters Say Sequel Is Still On Track To Shoot This Year

Deadpool screenwriting duo Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick discuss the forthcoming sequel, reaffirming that despite Domino and Cable's inclusion, the movie firmly remains a solo film for the Weapon X reject.

Recent comments from Ryan Reynolds about the state of the Deadpool sequel's screenplay and his assertion that cameras wouldn't begin rolling until the script was in a place that all vested-parties were pleased with led to a bit of panic about whether the film would be completed in time for its (unconfirmed) 2018 release.  It seems you can put those fears to rest as screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have informed Deadline that they believe the project is still on track to begin filming later this year.  

 "Yeah, it’ll be a solo movie. It’ll be populated with a lot of characters, but it is still Deadpool’s movie, this next one. We’re pushing forward very hard. I think by every account we will shoot it this year, and we’re on our multiple draft now. It’s taken different twists and turns, but it’s really coalescing, and we’re very, very excited. We’re a little nervous, because now we feel like we have to live up to the first movie, but at the same time, we have to have faith, and we have an extreme passion still, and as long as we have passion still, and it’s not a mercenary, venal play, which we don’t think this is, I think we’ll be in good shape."

Currently, casting is underway for Domino and Cable, with a number of young Hollywood starlets and action film stars said to be in contention.  

With these two important characters set to debut, would you like to see any of the supporting characters/cameos (such as Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead) back from the first film? Or do you think a complete turnover best services Deadpool's brand of humor - with only central supporting characters like Blind Al and Weasel returning?
