The re-release of Deadpool 2 is taking place this December and it will include some all new unseen footage. This was confirmed by Deadpool 2 writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
“We definitely shot new stuff. And recently too. After Deadpool 2 came out and we were all sitting around, we came to it less about the idea of let’s make a PG-13 movie and more, ‘Let’s talk a little bit about Deadpool.’” Wernick told /Film. “We were kicking around some ideas and then I think it was Ryan [Reynolds] who had the great framing device and we all got excited and went to the studio. They said, ‘Yeah, let’s do it. Fire up the cameras.’”
Warnick further explained that the production started after the film was already out in the theatres.
“About two months ago we were out on soundstages shooting again. Ryan was in the suit and the gang was back together, Dave Leitch and Ryan and us having a great time and laughing. It comes together great so we’re super excited about it.”
Wernick and Reese then confirmed that the release of Deadpool 2 will be geared towards a younger audience. Chances are that it carries a PG-13 rating.
“I think it’s not only going to appeal to kids but also to people who love Deadpool,” Wernick said. “I think it’s subversive enough and fun and creative and something that only Deadpool could do. So I think it’s going to be a real joy for not only a whole new audience, but also an audience that has seen and loved the Deadpool movies.”
Although some scenes were changed for Deadpool 2.5, writers confirm that the plot of the film has been kept the same.
“No, not really, not appreciably,” Reese said when asked if the story would change.
“We don’t want to mislead nor do we want to spoil,” reflected Wernick. “As we get closer, we’ll see what the studio will let us talk about. I wouldn’t reveal too much about it because it’ll ruin the fun for the audience.”
