The Deadpool 2 crew hasn’t had it easy in the past month. But, the show must go on! Rumour has it, 20th Century Fox is gunning to begin production in January 2017.
The sequel will reportedly start filming in British Columbia, according to reports at Canadian production site, What’s Filming. The thing is, that deadline puts a bit of a crunch for time on Fox, who have a little under two months to finish the script, find a director, and cast two major roles.
Earlier in October, it was announced that director Tim Miller would not be returning to direct the sequel, citing “creative differences” between him and Ryan Reynolds as the reason for leaving.
Then, only a couple weeks later on Nov. 3, composer Junkie XL, who worked on the original, announced on Facebook that he would also be leaving as a show of solidarity with Tim Miller:
So, this production announcement seems to be a positive step in the right direction, but fans are still a bit confused how it can proceed without a director and it’s key cast members…
The first Deadpool surpassed anybody’s wildest dreams when it made $786 million worldwide in its opening day on Valentine’s Day so it will be interesting to see whether Fox can pull it off a second time!
