DEADPOOL Begins Production In March
Canadian news outlet Global has confirmed that Fox's X-Men spin-off Deadpool will indeed begin production in March. First-time director Tim Miller is helming the project with a revised script from writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
The film has Ryan Reynolds finally playing as the wildly popular and insane mutant mercenary. It will spend two months shooting in location at North Shore Studios in Vancouver. It should be a comfortable shoot for the actor since Vancouver is his hometown. North Shore was the studio space for Fox's X-Files.
Ryan also shot Blade Trinity in Vancouver, but it's expected this production will go a lot smoother.
The rest of the casting should start coming together soon as most of the cast would likely need time to get prepared for action sequences and fight/weapons training.
As production is ramping-up within the next two months we'll likely start getting announcements from trades and Fox concerning it's cast. T.J. Miller and Ed Skrien were in the mix for roles but they haven't been confirmed.
