20th Century Fox Moving Forward with Deadpool Targeting 2016 Release, The Fantastic Four and Assassin’s Creed Delayed
Just a few hours after star Ryan Reynolds opened up about the reaction to the Deadpool leaked footage, 20th Century Fox has announced they are moving forward with the film and given it a February 12, 2016 release date, just three months before the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. Ryan Reynolds is expected to star with director Tim Miller at the helm and a script by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
In addition, Fox has shuffled a few more release dates, moving the Michael Fassbender starring Assassin’s Creed from its August 7, 2015 and is now without a release date at all. The upcoming reboot of The Fantastic Four from Josh Trank and starring Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, and Michael B. Jordan, has also moved from its June 19, 2015 release to the just vacated August 7.
