Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have already begun work on a script, with director Tim Miller expected to return.

Though Deadpool isn't due to hit theaters for another two days, anticipation for the movie is high after reviews hit last weekend. The film is currently sitting on a rating of 82% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and is predicted to go big at the box office this weekend, likely triumphing over this Friday's other big release, Zoolander 2.
