'Deadpool 2' to Kick Off Production at the Start of 2017
20th Century Fox has a planned production commencement of early 2017 for Deadpool 2, producer Simon Kinberg has revealed.
“The guys, [Pual] Wernick and [Rhett] Reese, are working on the script, and we hope to have a script very soon,” Kinberg told Collider. “We hope to shoot the movie sometime at the beginning of next year.”
Despite the shortcomings at the box office, Kinberg said that Fox is pleased with X-Men: Apocalypse's performance. “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.”
Production is well and truly on the way for Wolverine 3, so there's never a dull moment on the X-Men side of things. “I can only tell you that it’s going extremely well and that’s about all I will tell you about it,” he said.
“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.”
