Plans Already Underway For Deadpool 3 At Fox

20th Century Fox is in the process of getting ready for Deadpool 3 even as Deadpool 2 is still in the early stages of development.

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.

About the author

Reggie Peralta

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I’ve made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I’m not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school’s TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
