Ryan Reynolds Thanks Fans for Getting 'Deadpool' Made

20 February 2015 5:25 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this month, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds revealed that the test footage which leaked last year was "100% responsible" for this long-awaited comic book adaptation getting the green light, with production beginning in the actor's hometown of Vancouver next month. Of course, it wasn't just the footage being leaked that lead to the green light, but also the fans' overwhelmingly positive response to the video, which the actor acknowledged in a tweet to his 89,000 followers earlier today.

In another tweet from earlier this week, the actor acknowledges new cast members Gina Carano, T.J. Miller, Ed Skrein and Morena Baccarin, stating that he, "can't wait for us all to snap our fingers menacingly to the Cats Soundtrack." Does this mean that there will be some sort of musical number featured in Deadpool? We can't say for sure, but Ryan Reynolds did say last month that they will get "to make the movie we want to make. »

Week in Review: Jessica Williams responds to ‘Daily Show’ hosting pushes

20 February 2015 8:55 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

When it was announced that Jon Stewart would be leaving The Daily Show, the Internet responded in turn by nominating some viable candidates (you can read our list here). At the top of most packs was Jessica Williams, the 25-year-old black comic who has been the show’s most surprising correspondent addition in years and has proved herself to be acerbic and hilarious when talking about issues related to feminism, Beyonce, or black hair.

In fact, Hot Tub Time Machine 2 even includes a scene set in 2025 where Williams has nestled comfortably into the hosting chair. If the Cubs can win the World Series in Back to the Future 2, that prediction is good enough for me!

Williams however, despite being very humbled, tweeted that she was “under qualified” for the position, presumably with the idea that she’s only 25 and has a whole career ahead of her to do whatever she wants. »

Steven C. Miller Thriller Extraction Recruits Kellan Lutz And Gina Carano

19 February 2015 10:12 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hot on the heels of joining Ryan Reynolds for Deadpool, Fast and Furious and Haywire starlet Gina Carano has signed on for Steven C. Miller’s upcoming CIA thriller Extraction, along with Twilight star Kellan Lutz.

News comes via Deadline, who report that the pair will star opposite Bruce Willis in the actioner. According to the outlet, Lutz will assume the role of Harry Turner, a rookie agent yet to cut his teeth in the agency. With his father (Willis) missing, Turner flies in the face of direct orders and sets out on a mission to find him, but this soon leads to a manhunt spearheaded by Carano’s steely field operative, Victoria. And given the actress’ ass-kicking reputation accrued from her time spent in Mma, we don’t envy Turner’s plight.

With a father-son dynamic orbiting around the CIA, Extraction isn’t a million miles away from The Cold Light of Day, »

The cameras are already cranking for Bruce Willis’ latest thriller, Extraction, which finds him as a man on the run from a homicidal dentist with a tooth removal fetis... Ah, apparently that’s all in our heads.

Miller is directing this one, which finds Willis as a retired Secret Service agent who is kidnapped by some nasty terrorist types. So his son, Henry Cavill Lutz’s Harry Turner, disobeys his CIA bosses and goes hunting for him. Which, somewhat naturally, triggers a manhunt for Harry, with Gina Carano’s field operative dispatched to track him down and bring him back. And here we thought they’d have sympathy with this plight?Dan BilzerianLydia Hull and Tyler Olson are aboard this one, which features a script by Umair Aleem and Max Adams. »

Baccarin Is "Deadpool" Female Lead

18 February 2015 5:06 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following a screen test earlier this month, "Homeland" and "Gotham" actress Morena Baccarin has landed the female lead role in 20th Century Fox's film adaptation of the Marvel comic title "Deadpool".

Baccarin has beaten out several others in contention including Taylor Schilling ("Orange Is the New Black"), Crystal Reed ("Teen Wolf") and Rebecca Rittenhouse ("Red Band Society").

Baccarin's character's identity has not been revealed, though it is expected to be a potential love interest for Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) who must also deal with falling for a man with a disfigured face.

Reynolds plays an assassin who undergoes a procedure to cure his cancer, but the operation leaves him twisted and scarred while also giving him super powers. Gina Carano, T.J. Miller and Ed Skrein are also onboard the Tim Miller-directed film which begins filming next month in Vancouver.

With less than a year to go before Fox's Deadpool hits the big screen, production is obivously kicking into high gear, which means we're hearing about other cast outside of Ryan Reynolds.  Come inside to learn more about who's joined up and what role she might be playing.
