Ryan Reynolds Promises a Hard and Nasty Deadpool. You Know, if it Ever Gets Made.

23 Comments

Honestly, I don’t know why Ryan Reynolds is even wasting his time on “R.I.P.D.” Sure, I think the movie, with its undead buddy cop formula, would make for a more commercial film than, say, the blood and guts and wisecracks of a “Deadpool” movie, but in terms of sheer coolness? “R.I.P.D.” has nothing on “Deadpool”, and from what I’m hearing, Reynolds doesn’t think so, either. Or at least, I don’t see him going around talking about “R.I.P.D.”, or anyone asking him about it.

Meanwhile, Reynolds is talking about “Deadpool” again, and from the sounds of it, “Deadpool” may have just jumped ahead of “R.I.P.D.” in his mind, or maybe he’s decided to drop the movie altogether. Or does he still think he’ll do both? Anything’s possible. In terms of development, “R.I.P.D.” is probably ahead, with a director and a co-star in Jeff Bridges in talks. “Deadpool”, meanwhile, has Ryan Reynolds and first-time director Tim Miller attached, but beyond that, not much.

Speaking to MTV, Reynolds comments on Miller, and what he wants to do with the movie:

I love Tim. Tim is someone who we all vetted through and through. He’s a guy who captures the spirit of it, and he’s also an incredible visual artist. He was also the first guy we met who came up with a huge presentation for it. That was something I hope to able to show you at some point.

Also, Tim came cheap, which helped as well. In order to do this movie the way we want to do it is pretty nasty, and pretty hard. You can’t exactly have a $200 million budget when you want to do a movie like this.

Hard and nasty and semi-low budget is definitely the way to go. Of course, you have to understand that in Hollywood terms, “low budget” is probably around $20-$30 million, which, if you ask any of the real low-budget filmmakers out there, is a king’s ransom.

    Sounds like the right tone for me. It hould definitely be dark, dark humor, and nothing juvenile. It should be over the top in the action and the dialogue should be Tarantino-esque, but cranked to 11. Think the insanity of the “Crank” film with “Pulp Fiction” like dialogue and crazy situations.

      That’s the ticket! Hope this happens.

      Yeah, when you think about it, this should really be a Nevaldine/Taylor project, but I also think a tone along the lines of the Red Mist and Hitgirl and Big Daddy segments of “Kick-Ass” would work, too. Frankly, those were my favorite parts of the movie, moreso than the main hero arc.

        Its funny I was thinking N&T for this too. And yeah the tone of those scenes from “Kick Ass” would be the perfect tone. Super violent, and darkly hilarious.

    with the huge amount of movies based on comics… this has a huge chance to happen imo.

  • guy

    RIPD is shooting in Boston in September, so that means… it is ahead of Deadpool, unless they are somehow shooting that movie next month.

  • Stephen Dorsey

    i agree with what people said before me. a “crank”, “pulp-fiction”, “kick-ass” feel would be incredible.

      Pretty much the only way to make a “Deadpool” flick. I’d also throw in a little bit of “Smoking Aces” as well.

    Call me cynical, but I’ll believe the “dark and gritty” tone when I see it. If memory serves correct, that was exactly how Hugh Jackman was talking “Wolverine” and we all know how that turned out. I still can’t beat that scene of him bumbling around with his claws in the bathroom out of my brain! That was terrible!

    Sadly, each time someone tries to make a comic book adaptation really and truly in line with the tone of the comic it just doesn’t make the bucks the studios are looking for (The Spirit, Conan?) – and so I worry we’ll continue to see the films that studios want to see that appeal to millions of people instead of the films that the hundreds of thousands of true fans want to see.

      WHOA! First of all props on being one of the few that actually saw the Spirit and realized it’s exactly what a live action version would end up as. Miller may suck as a director (and have fallen off as a comic writer) but Will Eisner was his mentor and friend and he did justice to the comic, the problem was everyone was expecting it to be more like “Sin City” in tone and that isn’t “The Spirit” at all. Same couldbe said of the “Speed Racer” film. “Conan” as well but that was just some underwhelming scripting with the villain and the story. As for “Wovlerine” we did get something darker than the other X-films, but definitely wasn’t dark and gritty, though if “The Wolverine” ever gets made it sounds like it will be more in tone with the comic (Logan’s BEST stories are in Japan!!!).
