In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Ryan Reynolds has revealed that Deadpool's rating has yet to be determined, saying the debate between PG-13 and R "rages on."
He also talked about his favorite aspects of Deadpool, saying "It’s just how unusual he is. You understand why there was trepidation to make the movie early on? Because it’s a really difficult character to put up on the screen for the studio. He’s a character that’s aware he’s in a film, he’s aware that he breaks the fourth wall. I mean, he does certain things that are unlike anything else in the X-Men Universe yet he is a part of the X-Men Universe. So it makes it a little challenging, I think, to find a way. He’s so popular—the comic book alone [is] one of the most popular selling comic books of all time so it’s exciting to be here shooting it. We don’t have the budget that most X-Men movies do. In the super hero world, this would be considered an independent film."
Deadpool is filming now, for a February 2016 release and stars Ryan Reynolds as the titular merc with a mouth, as well as Morena Baccarin, and T.J. Miller.
According to The Wrap, Chris Columbus is set to produce a film based on Joe Kelly's I Kill Giants, with Anders Walter set to direct. Kelly is adapting the screenplay himself. I Kill Giants follows the story of a young who fights monsters both real and imaginary.
