Fox Plans “Deadpool” Spin-Off Film

20th Century Fox is developing a “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” spin-off featuring Deadpool says The Hollywood Reporter.

Ryan Reynolds is attached to reprise the wise-cracking mercenary character for what for now is simply being called “Deadpool”.

Lauren Shuler Donner and Marvel Studios would act as producers and the project is currently out to writers.

One of the alternate post-credits ends to ‘Wolverine’ hints that the film would explore the origins of the character.
