March Is For Mercs: 'Deadpool' Gets A Filming Start Date And Location

I have two questions:

1. Do any of you live in Vancouver?

2. Can I sleep in a drawer at your house, in say, late March??

Why? Do I need a reason to barge into your home and start drinking the good Scotch? Oh, is that so? I thought we were closer than that.

If you must know, ‘Deadpool’ is set to begin filming in Vancouver in late March. That’s why I wanted to steal your socks, eat those leftovers you were going to use for lunch, and leave the toilet paper roll with just patches of paper left attached. It’s worth it to let me live my dreams, isn’t it?

‘Deadpool’ stars, of course, Ryan Reynolds, will be directed by Tim Miller, and will have ties to the ‘X-Men’ flicks. There’s still no word concerning what script is being used or whether T.J. Miller and Ed Skrein will definitely be appearing in the movie. I feel like I’m no closer to my Betty White as Blind Al either.

If you let me come and stay with you, we can get the scoop…together! We could build a Fort Deadpool with your high thread-count sheets and decorate it with glitter, staples, and macaroni. It could be our command station! You could help me sneak into Ryan Reynolds’ trailer and steal obtain one of the various costumes used for filming. I promise I won’t implicate you if I get caught. Unless they have a clown question me. At that point I’ll tell them anything they want to know.

Just think about it. After filming ends, we can make plans to see the ‘Deadpool’ movie together on February 12, 2016. I’m sure that I’ll be out on parole by then and your better judgement will have lapsed once more.
