Fox confirms a sequel to Deadpool is underway
Ryan Reynolds and director TJ Miller will return for a sequel to Deadpool, it was confirmed last night (April 14th).
The movie has proved to be a huge box office hit and has grossed over $757 million from a budget of just $58 million, meaning a sequel was always likely.
Fox co-chairman Stacy Snider confirmed that both Miller and Reynolds are confirmed to return, with original writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick handling script duties.
Reynolds starred as Deadpool, with Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T. J. Miller, Gina Carano and Brianna Hildebrand also in key roles. It told the story of Wade Wilson, a fixer who discovers he has terminal cancer and undergones extremely risky treatment to cure him.
This treatment, administed by Skrein's Ajax, gives him vastly accelerated healing and incredible stamina, but also with hideous disfugurement, an outcome that sends him on a bloody revenge mission.
