Ryan Reynolds has revealed that a Deadpool Christmas script exists – and it’s entirely separate from Deadpool 3.
Ryan Reynolds is currently doing the rounds promoting his new festive film Spirited, the musical festive movie he’s made with Will Ferrell. And during a chat with Big Issue, Reynolds mentioned another Christmas caper script he hopes to make, in the form of a Deadpool film.
Reynolds said that he “would love to see a song and dance number in a Deadpool movie. Four years ago [Deadpool co-writers] Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick and I wrote a Christmas movie starring Deadpool. But it got lost in the shuffle of Disney acquiring Fox and it never got made”.
That’s about the first we’ve heard of it, and we wonder if it might be the last too.
Reynolds is currently preparing to star alongside Hugh Jackman, who will reprise the role of Wolverine in Deadpool 3. Shawn Levy, with whom Reynolds made Free Guy and The Adam Project, will direct from a screenplay by returning writers Reese and Wernick.
Given the fact that The Guardians Of The Galaxy Holiday Special is landing on Disney+ on Friday, a Deadpool Christmas project might not be outside the realms of possibility though. Stranger things, right?
