No matter which project he chooses, we'll have to wait awhile for it. The shoot will fall behind Ryan Reynolds' next two scheduled acting jobs on The Change-Up, which also stars Jason Bateman and Olivia Wilde, and Safe House, which he will then immediately move into, starring opposite Denzel Washington. Reynolds stated that either Deadpool or R.I.P.D. could come after those two movies wrap, but that he (likely) won't be able to do both. Here's an excerpt from the site's article:
People sort of ask this question, like I have any say in the matter. They're both movies I'm interested in, they're both movies that are in fast-track development. But I never say I'm doing a movie until I break for lunch the first day. Because it's such a crapshoot, this industry. Everything's so fickle and so contingent on so many factors, aside from just an actor. And because it has an actor, and because these films have interested directors, it's obviously likely that they'll both get made. But I think it would be more likely that only one of them gets made with me.
