We’re saying ‘Look, the budget is minimal. Therefore, can we do this the way it should be done?’ Which unfortunately needs a Rated R [age certificate] or it needs those elements.”

Teh project has been stalled for years and now lingers in the shows of the X-Men reboot and a planned project for X-Force.

Reynolds even confessed that the script online might be a good assessment of where the project lies.

“The script is probably available online, it leaked. But it’s very meta, I mean the character knows he’s in a movie, he knows he’s in a comic book. He names studio executives in the script. So, it’s kind of a risky property. But, you know, we’ll see. It’s actually, within the last couple of weeks, taken a few very, very small tiptoes forward. In our lifetime? Yeah, I think so. I think if I were a betting man it’ll get made, eventually. I mean it’s just been developed to high heaven. It has great people around it, so we’ll see.”

With Jeff Wadlow scripting an X-Force movie that has Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld attached to consult, it’s possible that Fox’s mega-mutant movie include the fan favorite.
