According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who wrote Deadpool, are writing the script for a follow-up, which has already been approved.
It is not surprising that the sequel is already underway considering that Deadpool is tracking to open to at least $65 million over the upcoming four-day holiday weekend, with some estimates pointing north of $70 million.
It is likely that Fox will keep Tim Miller, who directed Deadpool and the rest of the creative team together.
Deadpool is an R-rated action comedy based on an irreverent Marvel Comics character who is part of the universe of X-Men heroes, to which Fox has the license.
