In light of yesterday’s tragic accident involving Joi “SJ” Harris, production on Deadpool 2 has been postponed indefinitely to allow time for bereavement on all sides – the cast, the crew and, in particular, those close friends and family members mourning the loss of Harris, an experienced road racer who was taking her first shot at a feature film.
It’s a heartbreaking state of affairs that was best summed up by Ryan Reynolds, a Vancouver local, who released a heartfelt statement revealing that he was left “devastated” by the news. All in all, it’s an unfortunate and deeply saddening event that has befallen David Leitch’s sequel, and at least at the time of writing, there’s nary a mention of when filming will resume.
We will, as always, keep you right up-to-date as 20th Century Fox slowly begins to set the wheels in motion again, but until that day comes, Screen Rant has relayed a brief new quote from Ryan Reynolds himself regarding Deadpool 2 and, more specifically, whether the addition of Cable (Infinity War‘s Josh Brolin) is a sure-fire sign that the 2018 actioner will incorporate some element of time travel into its story. In short? It’s possible.
And really, that’s all Reynolds had to reveal. Answers are on the horizon, it seems, but the Canadian star isn’t ready to post any concrete story details – lest he ruin Deadpool 2‘s surprises ahead of time.
Per Screen Rant:
It is possible. Your answers will all be, they’ll be soon [sic]. They’ll be coming soon.
As things stand, Deadpool 2 remains on course for a June 2018 release. There’s a very good chance Fox will tweak that due date in light of this unexpected delay to production – even if it’s just a minor delay – and it’s worth bearing in mind that the studio has another two tentpoles booked in for next year: New Mutants (April 13th) and X-Men: Dark Phoenix (November 2nd, 2018).
