Untitled Vancouver-filmed 'Deadpool' movie to be released this Christmas

Theatre goers in 2018 will have a double dose of Deadpool.

This is because 20th Century Fox has plans to re-release a PG-version of Deadpool 2 – filmed in Vancouver mostly in 2017 – with far less violent scenes and significantly fewer expletives, if any, according to a report by Deadline.

At the moment, the studio has listed an ‘Untitled Deadpool Movie’ for release on December 21 for a limited time.

There may be a Christmas theme to this re-edited version, as suggested in a tweet by Vancouver actor Ryan Reynolds on Friday. He tweeted a photo of his masked character wearing a Santa hat and reading a children’s storybook to Fred Savage, in an apparent recreation of a Princess Bride scene.

For context, superhero movies within Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe are also rated PG-13.

It is unclear whether the extensive ‘reshoots’ of Deadpool 2, under the working title of ‘Daisy’, in Vancouver this past February are related to this upcoming version of the movie.

Deadpool 2 was released on May 18, and it earned a worldwide gross of $734 million, with $318 million from Canada and US box offices and $416 million from international box offices. The movie’s physical home media release occurred last month.

In comparison, the original movie in 2016 earned $783 million worldwide.
