Marvel enlists Bob’s Burgers’ The Molyneux Sisters to pen Deadpool 3
According to Deadline, Bob’s Burgers executive producing and writing duo Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin, also known as The Molyneux Sisters have been tapped to pen Marvel Studios’ highly-anticipated third installment to the Ryan Reynolds-led Deadpool films.
Kevin Feige and Disney Executive Chairman Bob Iger have both previously expressed an interest for future Deadpool films to maintain the R-rated content present in the first two films during their Fox tenure and sources report that Marvel Studios is looking to keep this intact, which would establish the third Reynolds-led outing as the first R-rated film from the Disney-owned studio. Meetings with writers have been ongoing for months, with the star and creative head finding he liked the pitch from the Great North co-creators the most and will work hand in hand with Feige and the duo to develop the script.
It’s currently unclear as to whether director David Leitch will return to helm the third installment in the franchise, with sources reporting that given his busy schedule through 2021, it’s unlikely but that the door remains open should he become available, though no word has been given as to why Deadpool 1 and 2 writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are not returning to pen the latest outing.
Deadpool 2 premiered in May of 2018, and became the second highest grossing R-rated film with $743.8 million worldwide, sitting behind just the first Deadpool movie. Directed by David Leitch, Deadpool 2 finds Ryan Reynolds reprises his role as the Merc with a Mouth alongside Zazie Beetz (Atlanta) as the luck-manipulating mutant Domino and Josh Brolin as Cable, the time-traveling son of the X-Men’s Cyclops. Jack Kesy (The Strain, Baywatch) stars as Black Tom, with Japanese actress Shioli Kutsuna and Julian Dennison (Hunt for the Wilderpeople) playing Yukio and Firefist.
