You Can’t Spell Smart-Ass Without Smart

Good news everybody! They've officially signed on scribes for the new Deadpool movie. Why is this good news? Because -- as first reported by that pretty boy over on CHUD and confirmed by Variety -- it's Zombieland screenwriters and friends of Pajiba Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick!

Like the rest of the cognoscenti, I was pleased with the selection of Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, as he combines the necessary ab to wit ratio to pull off the character. And I was digging on the way they treated his character in the first few scenes of Wolverine: Origins. But by the end of the movie when they took away that purty mouf in their efforts to turn him into Baraka from Mortal Kombat, I was horrified and speechless, and a little sticky.

However, I wholeheartedly support Reese and Wernick as the pensmiths for this particular project. Zombieland had a lot of wisecracks and smartassery, which is essentially Deadpool's bread and butter. They'll bring the right tenor of violence and humor to the sword-swinging menace. Now they just need a decent director to do it justice.

If you want to see Deadpool done right, get yourselves a copy of the animated Hulk Vs. While it's awesome watching Hulk fight Wolverine, it's really Deadpool that makes the movie shine.
