Ryan Reynolds says 'Deadpool' is 'tip-toeing' forward
Remember that "Deadpool" movie that was supposed to feature Ryan Reynolds reprising his smart-alec mercenary role from 2009's "X-Men Origins: Wolverine"?
Ryan Reynolds sure remembers.
The actor, who had a rough summer at the box office between "Turbo" and "RIPD," is still hoping to get the Marvel comicbook adaptation off the ground.
"It's actually, within the last couple of weeks, taken a few very, very small tiptoes forward," Reynolds explained to Joblo.com. "I think if I were a betting man it’ll get made, eventually. I mean it’s just been developed to high heaven. It has great people around it, so we’ll see."
"[In] its current iteration the movie’s actually very small," he added. "There’s minimal impact to the studio, which is the way we’re kind of presenting it to them. We’re saying ‘Look, the budget is minimal. Therefore, can we do this the way it should be done?’ Which unfortunately needs a Rated R or it needs those elements."
Only time will tell if Deadpool will live again.
