With Deadpool raking it in at the box office with staggering numbers north of $750m that has landed our foul mouthed masked crusader as the highest-grossing R-rated movie in box office history.
The Hollywood Reporter reported that star/producer Ryan Reynolds made only $2 million upfront. After the success of the original and this being somewhat of a passion project for Reynolds, sources say that his agents were planning an upscale of his salary for future installments.
Sources say (and by that I mean Heroic Hollywood) that renegotiation is done and the Ryan Reynold’s deal has been agreed.
The sequel is supposed to feature Cable, whereas Domino has been confirmed.
Update as of 9pm April 6 – Deadpool could start shooting as early as Autumn 2016, aiming for an early 2018.
