Ryan Reynolds is talking about the Deadpool Christmas-themed movie he had in mind that was ultimately scrapped after the Disney and Fox merger. “I would love to see a song and dance number in a Deadpool movie. Four years ago [Deadpool co-writers] Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick and I wrote a Christmas movie starring Deadpool. But it got lost in the shuffle of Disney acquiring Fox and it never got made,” Reynolds told Big Issue . “Maybe one day we’ll get to make that movie. It’s not a musical, but it’s a full Deadpool Christmas movie. So one day.” Reynolds has starred in two Deadpool movies, one in 2016 and the sequel in 2018.

I can’t remember the last time I sat at a Hollywood tribute like this one and felt compelled to stand and sing the entire Canadian National Anthem (they could have put the lyrics on the screen for us non-Canadians in … [Read more...] about Ryan Reynolds, Jason Blum And Blumhouse Honored At 36th American Cinematheque Awards
With his latest film The Son , filmmaker Florian Zeller looked to open “a conversation” surrounding issues of mental health that he feels there’s too often “shame, guilt and ignorance around.” Another key component of the storytelling — here, as in Zeller’s recent Oscar winner The Father — is parenthood, and the difficulty of experiencing a sense of “powerlessness” in this arena. The second film in a trilogy based on Zeller’s plays, The Son tells the story of Peter (Hugh Jackman), whose busy life with new partner Beth (Vanessa Kirby) and their baby is thrown into disarray when his ex-wife Kate ( Laura Dern ) turns up with their teenage son, Nicholas (Zen McGrath). RELATED: The Contenders Film: Los Angeles – Deadline’s Full Coverage When Dern first read Zeller’s script, she was quickly compelled, particularly given the fact that she, too, is a parent. “This [was] writing that exposes humanity in a way we rarely receive.
