Yahoo! Movies had an interview with Ryan Reynolds who is set who played the title character in the Deadpool movie. Reynolds will reprise his role as the Merc with a Mouth but he told the site how this movie is going to be good and not bad as Wolverine: Origins or other comic book related movies that’s he been in like Green Lantern. Finally the live action adaption is moving forward and has other actors that already joined the cast, like T.J Miller.
There’s a lot of good stuff in this interview, giving the whole credit to Yahoo! Movies, I decided to paste the best of it in this article.
First off, Mr Reynolds, how did the Deadpool movie finally come to fruition?
“Leaked test footage. Exclusively the leaked test footage, 100 percent.”Okay, so who leaked it? Was it you? The people demand to know!
“I would have, if I had known it would have caused that! Honestly, we all thought Tim Miller, the director, had leaked it. But I have since investigated that enough, in quiet moments when he was beyond the point of being penalized by anybody, and he said that he really didn’t do it. The initial [leak] came from Fox they think — someone recorded the footage on their iPhone and then released it. And then once that happened, somebody hacked into Blurred Studios and got the original footage in high-res and put it online.”I guess you’re glad it was leaked?
“Now, we get to make the movie. We don’t get to make it with the budget of most superhero movies, but we get to make it the way we want to make it, so that’s even more exciting than having a catered lunch.”Why should we be excited about Deadpool? You don’t exactly have the best track record when it comes to comic book adaptations.
“Well, script. When we shot Green Lantern, nobody auditioning for the role of Green Lantern was given the opportunity to read the script, because the script didn’t exist. I’m not complaining about it — it was an opportunity of a lifetime, and if I were to go back and retrace my steps, I would probably do everything the exact same way. But script, that’s what’s different on this one.
“We’ve had a script for three years. The script got leaked, and people even loved that. That says a lot — if you can create a script around a comic-book character that is directly within the canon of the character and be embraced. That’s a huge step in the right direction. I’ve since learned that a lot of superhero movies don’t really have a fully functioning draft of the screenplay ready until they’re already well into shooting.”
In case you haven’t seen already the leaked footage that made this movie possible, please, enjoy:
