Producer Simon Kinberg revealed plans to begin Deadpool 2 filming in early 2017. Some details on the latest Wolverine also in the interview.
The second movie in the Deadpool franchise from 20th Century Fox is not far away from beginning production. Kinberg told Collider –
“The guys, [Paul] Wernick and [Rhett] Reese, are working on the script, and we hope to have a script very soon. We hope to shoot the movie sometime at the beginning of next year.”
Despite disappointing figures at the box office for the latest X-Men, Kinberg also revealed that Fox are pleased with the numbers –
“The truth is Days of Future Past is sort of an outlier for an X-Men movie,” Kinberg explained. “We’d never made more than $500 million before, and Days was kind of like our Avengers, where we brought this sort of mega-cast together. We hoped this movie would do the same as Days of Future Past, but we had a feeling that maybe it would, maybe it wouldn’t. It’s a different kind of film than Days of Future Past.”
Fox are also deep into production on another X-Men movie with Wolverine 3 (working title). Not much has been revealed on this specific project, but we did post an article on some things we can expect in the new Wolverine. However, Kinberg did add some details, saying –
“I can only tell you that it’s going extremely well and that’s about all I will tell you about it. We want it to be discovered the way that we used to watch movies a long time ago when you didn’t know everything about them before you went to go see them.” Not bothered by photos that get out, he adds “I think that’s just the reality of the world now. We know photos are going to get out, and we also hope or know that people are savvy enough to know that the photos they see that are candids or paparazzi shots are different than what it look like through the camera, so we just live with it.”
Just like the first Deadpool, the new Wolverine will get an R rating in its theatrical release.
