Ryan Reynolds (The Captive) is finalising a deal with Fox-Marvel to reprise his role as Wade Wilson a.k.a Deadpool in the upcoming X-Men spinoff Deadpool.

The ‘Merc with a Mouth’ is a disfigured and mentally unstable anti-hero who underwent military experiments in X-men Origins: Wolverine in an attempt to replicate Wolverine’s mutant healing factor. Known for being acerbically talkative with the fourth wall, Deadpool will hopefully showcase Reynold’s comedic timing.

The film’s plot is still shrouded in mystery, but writer and creator Rob Liefeld has confirmed that Peter Milligan’s mutant superheroes X-Statix will not be in the Deadpool mix.

He’s now busy making a deal for the film, and announced that less-than-cryptically via Twitter.Deadline, meanwhile, reports that he’s in the middle of closing a deal for the film, which VFX expert-turned-director Tim Miller will wrangler together starting in March.Uh...

Obviously: Ryan Reynolds Closing Deal to Star in Deadpool

4 December 2014 2:11 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

For nearly as long as there’s been talk of a Deadpool movie, Ryan Reynolds has been attached to star.  The actor has a genuine love of the Marvel Comics antihero character, and he’s remained committed to the film for years despite 20th Century Fox’s continual refusal to delve into that kind of comic book movie territory.  But Fox finally came around earlier this year, setting a February 2016 release date for the picture after Deadpool test footage “leaked” online to positive response.  Reynolds provided the voice for the character in that footage, and now things are being made official as the actor is finalizing his deal to star in the film.  More after the jump.  Per Deadline, Reynolds is closing a deal to star in Fox’s Deadpool movie, which still has visual effects artist Tim Miller attached to direct from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. »

'Deadpool': Ryan Reynolds Confirmed, Shooting in March

4 December 2014 2:07 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Three months after 20th Century Fox officially handed out a February 12, 2016 release date for Deadpool, the studio is closing their deal with Ryan Reynolds to return as the Merc With the Mouth.

Writer-producer Simon Kinberg revealed in October that Deadpool will be a part of 20th Century Fox's X-Men movie universe. No story details have been released at this time, but fans have been excited for this project ever since test footage leaked onto the internet this summer. No other cast members have been confirmed at this time.

Ryan Reynolds Officially Signing On to Play Deadpool

4 December 2014 1:48 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Art by Cory Hamscher

Two months ago Fox announced that they will be releasing the long-awaited Deadpool movie in 2016. According to Deadline, the studio is now closing a deal with Ryan Ryenolds to reprise his role as the character that first appeared in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Reynolds was great as Wade Wilson at the beginning of the film, but what the studio did with Deadpool later on in that story is unforgivable. 

I'm happy to hear that Reynolds is coming back, though! The movie is being directed by Tim Miller, and he is developing the project from a script written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Everyone involved with this project wants to get Deadpool right for the big screen, so I think fans can expect something that they will all enjoy.

Reynolds announced the news by posting an image Thursday of the Deadpool character on his Twitter account.

Uh… It's Chimichanga Time. pic.twitter.com/ZlknW4HOtj

Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) December 4, 2014

“It’s chimichanga time” is a reference to Deadpool’s favorite food.

Fox announced several months ago that it had slotted “Deadpool” for Feb. 12, 2016. Reynolds, who portrayed the character in 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” has been expected to star for many years.

Tim Miller is directing the superhero film from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Lauren Shuler Donner and Marvel’s Kevin Feige are producing.

The talkative mercenary character, also known as Wade Wilson, was created by artist Rob Liefeld and writer Fabian Nicieza. He first appeared in print in 1991.

Deadpool’s primary power is the ability to heal quickly.

4 December 2014 1:28 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Back in September, some good news came from 20th Century Fox as the studio had finally decided to give Deadpool the feature film spin-off fans have been clamoring for ever since the character was disgraced with his appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The casting was perfect with Ryan Reynolds in the role of Wade Wilson, but then the film went and sewed his mouth shut, literally. But now the Merc with a Mouth will be back the proper way with the film slated to hit theaters on February 12th, 2016, and Deadline has confirmed that Reynolds is closing his deal at Fox to reprise his role and give Deadpool his due diligence.

Chris Pratt Confirms 'Cowboy Ninja Viking' Role

20 November 2014 8:49 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, we reported that Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt has signed on to star in Cowboy Ninja Viking. Today, the actor confirmed the casting on his Twitter page, while asking fans who they think should direct the comic book adaptation.

The project has been in the works for several years, with Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Zombieland) first set to write the screenplay for Disney. The studio eventually passed on the project, deeming it "too edgy", before Universal Pictures picked up the rights. Marc Forster was originally set to direct, but he is no longer involved.

Based on the comic book of the same name created by A.J. Lieberman and Riley Rossmo, Cowboy Ninja Viking centers on Duncan (Chris Pratt), a highly-trained assassin with multiple personality disorder, who possesses the skills of a cowboy, ninja and viking. He was part of a secret program known as Triplets, where »

19 November 2014 9:40 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Chris Pratt is in the midst of living out all of his childhood dreams on the big screen.

Lieberman and Riley Rossmo, "Cowboy" centers on a genetically-altered secret government assassin (is there any other kind these days?), whose Multiple Personality Disorder lends him the skills of a cowboy, a ninja, and a Viking. After escaping the agency, he strikes out on his own and tracks down the mastermind behind the program which created him.   The film has been in development at Universal for some »

Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt has joined a very cool film project called Cowboy Ninja Viking! The movie is based n a comic book, and it was first announced back in 2010 when Disney picked it up and hired the writers of Zombieland, Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, to tackle the script.

Casting: Chris Pratt May Be A 'Cowboy Ninja Viking,' Clive Owen Gets 'Confirmation' And More

19 November 2014 7:05 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Will Chris Pratt make the forever gestating "Cowboy Ninja Viking" finally happen? Kicking around since at least 2010, the comic adaptation has seen "Zombieland" writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick take a crack at the script, while Marc Forster at one point was attached to direct. None are involved now, but Pratt is reportedly attached to lead the movie at Universal. The story centers on Duncan, part of a "counter-intelligence program made up of Multiple Personality Disorder patients who are transformed into agents known as Triplets, so-called for their three different personalities (hence the title). Duncan subsequently escapes and uses his skills to track down the billionaire who masterminded the program." Sounds like 'Bourne,' but with a triplet twist.

Chris Pratt Is A "Ninja Cowboy Viking"

19 November 2014 6:29 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Guardians of the Galaxy" star Chris Pratt is reportedly attached to topline the film adaptation of A.J. Lieberman's graphic novel "Cowboy Ninja Viking" at Universal Pictures reports Collider.

The story revolves around an assassin with dissociative identity disorder who possess the skills of a cowboy, a ninja, and a Viking, and works for a secret government program.  He escapes and uses his skills to track down the billionaire who masterminded the program.

Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese ("Zombieland") penned an earlier adaptation of the material which Disney rejected for being "too edgy". Universal picked it up out of turnaround and attached Marc Forster to direct. Forster is no longer attached and no new helmer is yet set.

The most recent script draft indicates that when the character switches personalities, he will physically manifest onscreen as three different people. To other characters in the film though, he still just looks like Pratt's character. »
