DEADPOOL 3 Hires The Molyneux Sisters
Bob’s Burgers Emmy-winning writers Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin and Wendy Molyneux have been hired to write the script for the upcoming Deadpool 3, starring Ryan Reynolds. The sisters are longtime collaborators and are also creators, showrunners and executive producers on the animated comedy The Great North, which has earned a second-season renewal ahead of its February 2021 premiere.
Variety reports that Reynolds, who produces as well as stars in the franchise, was key in choosing the Molyneuxs to write the script. The third film will be the first in the franchise to be made under the Marvel umbrella, which Reynolds called the “big leagues” when he officially announced the film last year on Live With Ryan and Kelly.
Tim Miller helmed the first Deadpool film, and David Leitch directed the sequel, but no director has been announced for the third movie yet.
Let’s hope Disney doesn’t fuck it up.
