Deadpool 2 set to begin filming in early 2017

New details of the sequel have emerged

Deadpool 2 is set to being filming early next year, with the film’s producer, Simon Kinberg, revealing more details about the superhero sequel.

The first film became the highest-grossing R-rated movie of all time after its release in February. Ryan Reynolds played the Marvel superhero in a film filled with bad language, graphic violence and nudity required to take it past the adult only certification.

Deadpool saw Reynolds flanked by a supporting cast that includes Haywire’s Gina Carano, former Homeland actress Morena Baccarin, Game Of Thrones veteran Ed Skrein and Silicon Valley star TJ Miller.

Speaking to Collider ahead of the Saturn Awards in California producer Simon Kinberg said: “The guys, [screenwriters Paul] Wernick and Rhett [Reese], are working on the script, and we hope to have the script very soon.

He continued, “we hope to shoot the movie some time at the beginning of next year.” Heroic Hollywood reports that that Ryan Reynolds has completed a deal for its follow-up, with filming allegedly starting later this year for a potential 2018 release. This, however, has not been confirmed through official channels.

Speaking to IG earlier this year (February 6), Reynolds said: “I never want to play another comic book character again; Deadpool, I would like to play for the rest of my life – that’d be fun.”
