RUMOR: Former 007 Pierce Brosnan Reportedly In Early Negotiations To Play Cable In The DEADPOOL Sequel

According to a few select comments from a reliable source, the Deadpool sequel may have found its Cable in former James Bond actor, Pierce Brosnan, who was recently pictured alongside Ryan Reynolds!

Speculation ran rampant a few weeks back when Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds shared a photo of himself sharing a laugh with fellow X-Men star Hugh Jackman (Logan) and former James Bond, Pierce Brosnan (The Foreigner). Considering the latter has literally no current ties to Fox's billion-dollar franchise, he was the focus of practically all discussion as many began to wonder whether he had been cast in the highly coveted role of Cable in the upcoming Deadpool sequel. Well, as it turns out, all that speculation may not have been entirely unfounded.

Earlier today, during the latest episode of Popcorn Talk's weekly vodcast Meet The Movie Press, Forbes reporter Simon Thompson shared a few details from his very informative recent encounter with director David Leitch (who is helming Deadpool 2) at the world premiere of John Wick: Chapter 2. Thompson utilized an age-old tactic in trying to get Leitch to slip up and reveal any little nugget about the eagerly awaited sequel: "So I said, 'Congratulations on casting Pierce Brosnan, and he went, 'We have not yet.'" - emphasis on the yet

He then handed off the discussion to his co-hosts, Justin Kroll of Variety and Jeff Sneider of The Tracking Board, and while the former was not allowed to confirm or deny anything on-air, the ever-reliable Sneider dropped a pretty major revelation when he let them know what he's heard: "Justin can't say anything, but, yeah, I've heard it's going to him.

All three more or less agreed it was still too early to call the Cable race for Brosnan, so it's probably best to take this news with a grain of salt as the situation can change at the drop of a hat. Also, whenever the casting is made official, the announcement is expected to be made by Reynolds.
