Well, well, well, what do we have here? It seems like our favorite anti-hero might be in a bit of a pickle. The latest news on Deadpool 3 has fans on the edge of their seats. But hold your horses, let’s dive into the nitty-gritty and see what’s really going on.
The Writers’ Strike is currently causing a ruckus in the entertainment industry, leading to many productions being shut down or delayed. Despite this, some productions remain mostly unfazed. But what about our beloved Deadpool 3? Well, it just started production a few days ago in the United Kingdom. But there’s a catch…
Ryan Reynolds: The Improvisation Conundrum
Ryan Reynolds, known for his comedic chops and knack for improvisation, is not allowed to improvise during the Writer’s Guild of America (WGA) Strike. Why? Because he’s credited as a writer for the movie. So, he can’t deviate from the script under WGA guidelines. But wait, there’s a loophole…
The Loophole: Producer vs Writer
Reynolds is also a producer for the movie. Technically, per WGA rules, producers are allowed to make “casual minor adjustments in dialogue or narration made prior to or during the period of principal photography.” However, the WGA has asked producers to avoid any writer-like practices at this time to support the strike.
