Plans Already Underway For Deadpool 3 At Fox
The news comes from a report by The Hollywood Reporter, which claims that the project is slated to feature X-Force, known to X-Men fans as another team of mutants from the original Marvel comics. Additionally, the report states that Fox is already looking for a director to work on the planned sequel.
In additional news on the X-franchise, THR notes that “the reset button has been pressed” on the flagship X-Men movies with writer/producer Simon Kinberg working on a new script for the next film, albeit without Bryan Singer in line to direct. Singer previously directed four of the X-Men films and is currently working on a new feature of 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea and is attached to directed Bohemian Rhapsody, the Freddie Mercury biopic starring Rami Malek. Another wrinkle for this forthcoming film is the matter of stars Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Nicholas Hoult, who all completed their three-picture deals with this summer’s X-Men: Apocalypse and stand to see a major payday if they return. The outlet reports Fox is optimistic at the return of Lawrence, Fassbender, and McAvoy.Finally, they reveal the status of two other X-Men spin-off films, Gambit and The New Mutants.
