Leading man Ryan Reynolds can now add screenwriter to his resume.
The Deadpool star has officially been listed alongside Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick as the credited screenwriters of David Leitch's upcoming Deadpool 2. Although he was already listed as one of the film's producers, this is Reynolds' very first writing credit.
And given how heavily involved he's been in the development of both of these two films, we can honestly say that this really doesn't come as that big a surprise to us.
The news comes a day after 20th Century Fox released a new trailer for the film.
After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.
Starring Ryan Reynolds, Zazie Beetz, Josh Brolin, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Stefan Kapicic, Brianna Hildebrand, Terry Crews, Leslie Uggams and Karan Soni, Deadpool 2 arrives May 18th.
