Reese and Wernick on Writing Deadpool

MTV talked to Zombieland screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick who are collaborating with Ryan Reynolds on the script for X-Men Origins: Wolverine spin-off Deadpool.

“We’re outlining it pretty seriously right now,” Reese said. “Were in the early stages.”

“We just absolutely adore the character and the comic,” added Wernick. “And tonally, it’s right up our alley. He’s the unstable, smart-ass, self deprecating guy — and they say write what you know, so [we’re perfect for it].”

So what has it been like working with Reynolds? “One of the nice things about working with Ryan is that he tonally gets it — if we ever do something that is off the Deadpool path, or if it doesn’t feel like Deadpool, he catches it,” Reese said.
