With production slated to begin this March in Vancouver, the long-awaited Deadpool movie starring Ryan Reynolds is finally happening, with 20th Century Fox setting a February 12, 2016 release date back in September. MTV caught up with Ryan Reynolds at the Sundance Film Festival, where he was on hand for the premiere of his new movie Mississippi Grind. Deadpool has been in the works for several years, ever since Ryan Reynolds played the Merc With the Mouth in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The actor reveals that the project is moving forward in the right way, saying that it's actually a blessing that they don't have the inflated budget most superhero movies have:
"It's been a long time, but it's happened in the right way and that's all that matters. We don't have the kind of money that most superhero movies do, but that's great, actually. Necessity is the mother of invention, and »
In case it somehow slipped your mind, a Deadpool movie is finally on its way to the silver screen at long last, with Ryan Reynolds on board to play the Merc with a Mouth. And today, we bring you news that production is set to get underway in late March when the cameras will begin rolling in the actor’s hometown of Vancouver.
This will be the character’s first appearance on the big screen since Reynolds’ outing as Wade Wilson in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and it’s still unclear as to whether Fox will remain true to the source material and push for an R-rated film or, on the other hand, opt for a PG-13 classification. In saying that, there’s every chance that director Tim Miller will film for each rating, and release the more controversial scenes via an uncut Blu-Ray edition.

Ryan Reynolds stars as the wise-cracking mercenary with a wicked sense of humor and a taste for red and black outfits. VFX veteran Tim Miller is directing from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
