Ryan Reynolds has cleared up any worries that he would be leaving the Deadpool project after signing on for Green Lantern, by revealing he's still passionate about the project.
The actor told The LA Times that Deadpool will be a "nasty piece of work," after a script was turned up by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick; he then added "It goes in such a different direction than a superhero movie usually goes. It’s just based in so much emotional filth, completely. It’s like Barfly (Mickey Rourke movie for a few years back), if it were a superhero movie. It sort of treads into the world of an emotionally damaged person. I always say that Deadpool is a guy in a highly militarized shame spiral." Robert Rodriguez is still keen on directing the project, it's just a case of whether or not he can find the time in his schedule.
I just saw Reynolds in Buried, and that is an incredible performance. Hyperbolic words like that are thrown around from time-to-time, but really, the man does amazing work in it. Green Lantern will be seen in June of next year, Buried out in Ireland in a couple of weeks.
