"We Don’t Want $150 Million To Go Make The Next Movie": 'Deadpool' Writers Talk Sequel & X-Men Plus VFX Reel And More


Even before its two outstanding weekends at the box office, 20th Century Fox had greenlit a sequel to "Deadpool." And with the movie nearing $500 million worldwide, the traditional plan would be to massively increase the budget, and make a bigger, badder, bolder followup. However, writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick don't think that's necessarily the right way to go with the character.
“We don’t want $150 million to go make the next movie, that’s not Deadpool. Deadpool doesn’t lift cities up into the air or battle aliens coming down to earth, that’s just not Deadpool. So we’re happy in that little small budget range that they have us in; we don’t wanna blow this next one out,” Wernick told Collider.
