Deadpool has bagged $754,530,050 worldwide at the box office and has passed The Matrix Reloaded ($742.1 million) to become the highest-grossing R-rated movie in box office history. The movie cost only $58 million to make.
The Hollywood Reporter broke the story back in February that star/producer Ryan Reynolds made only $2 million upfront. Although he was signed for a sequel, THR sources said his WME agents were planning for a big renegotiation that will significantly up his compensation for future installments.
According to my sources, that renegotiation is done and Ryan Reynold’s deal has closed. Although I don’t have the deal particulars (the hollywood trades probably do), Ryan Reynolds is locked in to return as the Merc with with Mouth when production on the Deadpool sequel kicks off this fall. Good for Ryan Reynolds who played ball whenever 20th Century Fox needed him to make numerous appearances in character for the hilarious and unprecedented marketing campaign.

From the corridors of Washington D.C. to the grimy, neon-drenched streets of an apocalyptic Los Angeles, House of Cards stalwart Robin Wright has boarded Denis Villeneuve’s long-in-development sequel Blade Runner 2.
Warner Bros. made the announcement via press release earlier today, though they didn’t disclose the role Wright will be assuming. All we know for sure at this early stage is that the 2018 feature will take place “several decades after the 1982 original, with Harrison Ford reprising his iconic role as Rick Deckard.”
