It was announced this week that Deadpool 2 director David Leitch will direct the Hobbs and Shaw Fast and Furious Spin-Off, leading Ryan Reynolds to have some fun. Reynolds took to social media to lobby for a Deadpool cameo in the highly anticipated spin-off with a pretty humorous part. The cameo won't ever happen, but it's cool to see that Reynolds and Leitch got along well while making Deadpool 2. At least well enough to get sucked into the Merc with a Mouth's weird sense of humor.
The Fast and Furious franchise is about to get a little bigger with the addition of the long-awaited Hobbs and Shaw movie, which stars Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Jason Statham. While some of the cast of the Fast and Furious world aren't very excited about the spin-off, Ryan Reynolds is all for it and he wants a part for Deadpool, since he and director David Leitch are so close. A Deadpool cameo as a cop? That's what Reynolds wants. He had this to say to Leitch.
"You promised Deadpool was in this. You said I get to play the no-nonsense Police Chief, who yells at Hobbs for crashing his 58 valve Nissan Sentra into an Olive Garden. Put me in coach."
Ryan Reynolds is obviously wishing his friend the best and giving a humorous congratulations message on social media, which is more than any of the cast of the Fast and Furious cast did for Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson when the Hobbs and Shaw spin-off was announced. But that too, is for obvious reasons, since there's still some beef back there in that franchise between Johnson and co-star Vin Diesel.
David Leitch directed Deadpool 2, which has reportedly tested far better than the first movie did at this stage in the game. There has been some drama from "inside" information, but none of those reports have been officially confirmed by anyone directly involved with the production of Deadpool 2. The movie was undergoing reshoots as of a few weeks ago to add some more of Josh Brolin's Cable and Zazie Beetz's Domino characters, according to recent reports that are based off of knowledge from the test screenings.
As for the Hobbs and Shaw spin-off, the movie is expected to begin shooting this fall, aiming for an April 10th, 2020 release date. David Leitch was rumored to be the studio's frontrunner since late last year and now that it's confirmed, Ryan Reynolds is looking to get into some of that Fast and Furious action. Even though that won't ever happen, it would make for a pretty good mashup/spin-off for both franchises. Hobbs, Shaw, and Deadpool out on the prowl would probably bring in some serious box office cash, but again, it's sadly never going to happen.
