The Deadpool spinoff has found a pair of writers to pen the big screen adaptation of the comic book character.  Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have been hired by 20th Century Fox to spin an adventure of the Merc with a Mouth.  If the names sound familiar, it’s because the writing duo were the minds behind Zombieland, which might fit nicely with the tone of Deadpool.

Currently there is no timetable for the movie, however if the writers can get a final draft of the script ready for summer, it will be a great time to get a really buff Ryan Reynolds into the costume.
