    Fans of loopy banter and insane violence rejoice — Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, of Zombieland fame, are writing the Deadpool movie. This means the "Merc with a Mouth" film could actually be clever. Variety announced that Fox has selected Zombieland writers Reese and Wernick to bring Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool film to life.
    While there's "no timetable" set the trade speculates that if the script is done by the summer, Reynolds will already be in superhero shape from filming Green Lantern and has a window of opportunity, so what's to stop a quick turnover? Well besides piling two Ryan Reynolds comic book movie releases on top of each other that is.
    The writers stated that they wanted to stay true to the mythology of Deadpool, and if their previous Zombieland work is any indication of their wit, then they are a perfect fit for the fourth-wall-breaking, Bea Arthur-loving character.








    zombieland was fucking great


    faith has been somewhat restored in this movie

    This makes me happy because these guys know how to break the 4th wall.

    Just imagine the Zombieland Rules as little yellow boxes. :x:

    Zombieland was ok. I hope they learned a lot from making writing that movie. Without Bill Murray's cameo I would of written off the entire second half of it as dull.

    I liked the movie alot, but can certainly understand that point of view. I'd say the last 1/4 of the movie was probably the worst part of the flick... but overall it was pretty good.
