Ryan Reynolds Confirms Rhett Rheese And Paul Wernick Are Still Writing DEADPOOL 2

Ryan Reynolds Confirms Rhett Rheese And Paul Wernick Are Still Writing DEADPOOL 2

Despite a worrisome report that implied Deadpool scribes Rhett Rheese and Paul Wernick were off of the sequel, star Ryan Reynolds has taken to Twitter to assure fans the writers are still on board...

Yesterday, Collider published a report stating that writer Drew Goddard (Daredevil, The Martian) was working on the script for the highly anticipated follow-up to Deadpool. Given that the sequel lost its original director (Tim Miller) and composer (Junkie XL) in recent months, it was an alarming prospect that the movie may have lost its original writers Rhett Rheese and Paul Wernick as well, despite Goddard having an excellent resume in TV and film.

In the wake of this report, star Ryan Reynolds took to Twitter to set the record straight; according to the actor, both Rheese and Wernick are still writing the movie. "Rhett Rheese and Paul Wernick are still very much writing the screenplay. They're the heartbeat of the whole operation," he wrote. Reynolds made no mention of Goddard in his tweet.

Collider has since updated their story to state that Goddard was "added to the mix" as a consultant as opposed to replacing Rheese and Wernick, though the outlet has provided no additional details. 

Are you happy that the two writers are still on the project? Let us know what you think below!
