POOLWATCH: Deadpool Gets Zombie Writers
What could be more perfect? Variety is reporting that Fox's Deadpool feature film starring Ryan Reynolds has just signed on "Zombieland" writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick! Insiders report that Reynolds is a MASSIVE fan of the Deadpool books, so we can only hope he'll make sure things are done correctly. Having the two masterminds behind the messed up genius that is Zombieland is certainly a check mark in the positive category. With the Pool enjoying a huge resurgence in Marvel comics as of late, the writers will have plenty of excellent material to work with. The main Deadpool comic alone is consistently hysterical and packed with insane moments you'll never expect. Let's hope the character will retain his current, trademark hallucinations, at the very least.
There is no date set for Deadpool production, though it is said Reynolds has an open schedule after his turn as DC's Green Lantern and will most certainly be in fighting...sword swinging...uzi shooting shape.
