It’s hard to imagine an adult fan of the Deadpool movies being excited about seeing a watered-down, edited-for-content, PG-13 cut of one of the movies after experiencing the full-on, naughty-as-f*ck original cuts. It’s likely that the movies will still be funny without all of the cuss words and the grossest jokes removed, but you’ll always feel like you’re getting…less. To entice those who have already seen the original version of Deadpool 2 to see the upcoming PG-13 re-release of the movie on December 21st along with the younger set, co-writer Paul Wernick revealed to /Film that titled star and producer Ryan Reynolds climbed back in the red suit only a short time ago to shoot “new stuff” not seen in the original release.
After ‘Deadpool 2′ came out and we were all sitting around, we came to it less about the idea of let’s make a PG-13 movie and more, ‘Let’s talk a little bit about ‘Deadpool.” We were kicking around some ideas and then I think it was Ryan who had the great framing device and we all got excited and went to the studio. They said, ‘Yeah, let’s do it. Fire up the cameras.’ About two months ago, we were out on soundstages shooting again. Ryan was in the suit and the gang was back together, [director] Dave Leitch and Ryan and us having a great time and laughing. It comes together great so we’re super excited about it.
It’s unclear if any of the other cast members returned to shoot new content alongside Reynolds as Wernick wouldn’t, or couldn’t, say, but he added that the new footage would “not appreciably” change the story. He added that more will be revealed once the studio gives the go-ahead.
Deadpool 2 was directed by David Leitch (John Wick) from a script by Deadpool writers Reese & Wernick and Reynolds and Drew Goddard. The cast includes Josh Brolin, Zazie Beetz, Morena Baccarin, Stefan Kapacic, Brianna Hildebrand,T.J. Miller, Julian Dennison, Leslie Uggams, Shioli Kutsuna, Karan Soni, Rob Delaney and Jack Kesy.
