Production on the Ryan Reynold movie Deadpool seems to have already begun and fans are quite excited about the comic-book anti-hero appearing on the big screen.
While not much has been revealed about the project, a test footage that released last year created enough positive buzz for the studio (Fox) to green light the film. Reynolds recently spoke to Collider about the film and shared details on the choice of director, nature of the movie, and current status of production.
When asked what makes relative unknown Tim Miller the right man to bring the popular character to the big screen, Reynolds replied:
"[He's] always been the right guy. He's always, you know, shown nothing but a fierce loyalty to the canon of Deadpool and that's the thing you look for first and foremost, a guy that is always wanting to push a little bit farther. And the advantage of doing a movie like this on a budget that is significantly less than any other kind of superhero movie is that you get to do things that you don't get to do on other superhero movies so that's what we're most excited about."
Picking on Reynold's 'budget' comment, the site asked him if it could be an indication that the makers are planning on making Deadpool an R-rated film; "I have no idea... I don't want to spoil anything so we'll see. We hope," the actor responded.
As for the current status of Deadpool, the actor would only say the following about where things currently stand.
"Tests. Lots of tests. Lots and lots of tests. That's about all I can say about that."
