Ryan Reynolds Is Set To Earn An Absolute Packet Off The Success Of 'Deadpool'

Ryan Reynolds Is Set To Earn An Absolute Packet Off The Success Of 'Deadpool'

Deadpool has grossed $500 million at the box office in less than two weeks and given the film cost $58 million to make, 20th Century Fox execs must be pretty happy bunnies right about now. The only problem is how they're going to divide up all that profit.

It is believed star and producer Ryan Reynolds was paid $2 million up front for his role as Deadpool and is the only member of the entire cast who is eligible for bonuses. If the movie reaches its estimated $800 million in global sales, Reynolds is set to receive a hell of a lot more.

If all goes to plan, Reynolds will pocket more than $10 million, according to The Hollywood Reporter. That's huge.

When you consider, at 39, Reynolds had starred in Green Lantern and R.I.P.D., which both flopped, his career was on the floor. Now he's signed on to a second Deadpool movie, his career is very much back on.

Director Tim Miller is also set to double his earnings from the movie, with his $250,000 up-front fee rising to $500,000.

Reports also suggest there will be 'goodwill' bonuses for writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick among others.

All thoroughly deserved. If you haven't seen it, you should. It's arguably the best comic book movie I've ever seen.
