‘Zombieland’ Writers To Take On Script Duties For ‘Deadpool’ Movie

Deadpool

As one of the more popular anti-heroes of the comic book world, the announcement of a movie based on the Wade Wilson himself, Deadpool, was music to the ears of fans.

With promises of a faithful adaptation, the perfect-fitting Ryan Reynolds reprising his role from X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and the assurance that the severe mishandling of the character in Wolverine would be wiped clean, how could anyone not be excited? To add to all of this, a rumor that was first reported by CHUD in early December has now been confirmed by the trades: Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have been hired on to pen the Deadpool script.

This is fantastic news to throw onto the pre-existing pile of positive ingredients that have been applied to the project. Zombieland was praised for its humor and well-placed sarcasm, which is what Wade Wilson is really all about. Nail his Merc with the Mouth persona and you nail the character while setting yourself up for a successful film.

If you’ll recall, Reynolds was also cast as Green Lantern, which is expected to come first and begin production soon. Another important question that remains to be seen is if they’ll go all out and bring the rare R-rated comic book movie to us, or if they’re going to tone it down for a wider audience.

  1. This is good news. I thought Zombieland was a terrific film and I can’t wait to see what these guys and Reynolds can do with Deadpool, especially if the 4th wall is broken.
