Reynolds is returning to produce the sequel, which will be directed by David Leitch and written by the original movie’s screenwriters, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Aside from Brolin and Beetz, the ensemble cast also consists of Jack Kesy as an unspecified villain; T.J. Miller as Weasel; Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Deadpool’s roommate; and Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, Deadpool’s fiancée.
