Ryan Reynolds, Michael Bay And 'Deadpool' Writers Working On Netflix Film
So you may have noticed that Ryan Reynolds has been in the media quite a lot recently (it's almost like he has a movie out or something). Well, this is different because it's only slightly about Deadpool and more about what the future holds for Ryan, and some of his showbiz pals.
We know that he's a pretty successful guy. He's clearly got ambition and definitely knows something good when he sees it - I mean, he was trying to get Deadpool to our screens for over a decade and 47 rejection letters later, look where it is. He's also married to Blake Lively, a rich prompt for envious gazes the world over.
So we're sure that his new Netflix action film is going to be an almighty triumph. How could it be any other way? (Ok, yes, well done everyone who remembers Boltneck and Green Lantern - let the past be the past, eh?)
According to UPROXX, the Deadpool 2 team isn't taking much of a breather before setting upon their next project.
Ryan - along with partners-in-crime, screenwriters Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese - is gearing up to make his mark on the world of Netflix with a large dollop of action, thanks to the helping hand of Michael Bay.
According to Deadline, the project will be co-financed by Netflix and Skydance Media. Ryan will definitely be the star of the film Six Underground, with all eyes on a summer 2019 release.
The script is already in hand and it's said to be 'a high testosterone mission movie.'

Also, there's a reported $150 million budget (£112.4m), which is about as much as the first Transformers film crew had to play with.
We're sure there will be lots of teasers, jokes and trolling from Ryan (and Blake) about the film in due course.
The company regularly acquire documentaries but it hadn't really tried to dive into the Hollywood blockbuster business.
Then in December Netflix released Bright, a $90 million-plus (£67.4m) fantasy and action adventure film from Suicide Squad director David Ayer. They're definitely bringing all the right people in, aren't they?
The Verge reported that Bright had a little something for everyone: gritty action, a magical world full of orcs and elves, and the still-undeniable star power of Will Smith.
So just when you thought you'd watched everything you were bothered about on Netflix, you'll probably want to hang on a little longer for Six Underground.
