    Reese and Wernick's past work includes Zombieland and GI Joe: Retaliation. They're also on board to pen Deadpool 2 and a movie based on the Ubisoft video game series Watch Dogs.


    Deadpool is now available on Blu-ray. It stars Reynolds, Morena Baccarin (Gotham), Ed Skrein (Game of Thrones), TJ Miller (Silicon Valley), and Brianna Hildebrand (Prism). The movie broke a number of records, became the second biggest debut in US history for the first installment of a superhero film, and is currently the highest-grossing R-rated movie.

    Shooting for the sequel is expected to start early next year. Deadpool 2's cast hasn't been announced yet, but Avatar actor Stephen Lang has expressed interest in playing the time-travelling character Cable.
