Update: Drew Goddard writing Deadpool 2 script; Joe Carnahan penning X-Force

02.23.2017

UPDATE: Ryan Reynolds has taken to Twitter to clarify that Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are still writing the screenplay to the DEADPOOL sequel and a big part of the process. See his Tweet below.

The X-MEN franchise is quickly expanding beyond the core movies and Twentieth Century Fox has plenty of X-MEN projects in development, including a sequel to DEADPOOL and X-FORCE. After the surprising success of DEADPOOL, a sequel was quickly greenlit, but sadly the road ahead may not prove to be any easier than it was the first time. DEADPOOL screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have been attempting to tackle the script for the sequel over the past few months, but now there may be someone new putting words in Deadpool's mouth.

Collider claims that Drew Goddard (CABIN IN THE WOODS) has reportedly taken over scripting duties on the DEADPOOL 2 script, and, has apparently been working closely with Ryan Reynolds to "create something everyone is excited to make." Collider isn't sure how far along Reese and Wernick were with the DEADPOOL 2 script, but it seems like some fresh eyes were needed.

Additionaly, Collider also believes that Joe Carnahan will be penning X-FORCE. Carnahan already has plenty of big projects on his slate, including directing and writing the next BAD BOYS, scripting Shawn Levy's UNCHARTED adaptation as well as writing and directing a remake of THE RAID. That's certainly one busy dude. Collider added that Carnahan is only writing the X-FORCE script at this time and isn't attached to direct. Once he figures out how to function without sleep, I can imagine him taking on directing duties as well. Jeff Wadlow (KICK-ASS 2) was previously attached to write and direct X-FORCE several years ago, with X-Force co-creator Rob Liefeld calling the script he read "beyond impressive," but it looks as though Carnahan will be starting from scratch. Anything can change, so keep this in mind until we hear something official.

Awesome

Carnahan vanished for a bit but is coming back strong. I hope his raid remake will be awesome, and his uncharted script sounds pretty dope.

So scrap that article the other day about Deadpool starting really soon?
But if its the case of Drew coming in to give some fresh ideas to the script, then more power to this franchise.

Annnnd we're still further away from the first Deadpool film.
After the director, we're loosing the screenwriters...I fear Fox is going the 'Fox Executives fucking the X-Franchises' way again !
As for Cable, although I like Grillo, wasn't Pierce Brosnan the last rumored for the part ?

Frank Grillo as Cable totally makes sense now if they're going that route which they should.

Really enjoy the talent that has been attaching themselves to this spin off X-Men films. Big fan of Carnahan and am excited to see what he brings to X-Force; hopefully he ends up directing as well.
