Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick On Writing

It seems to me that writer duos are far more popular than ever, especially in the comic book movies. This week, let me introduce you to Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the writers of “Deadpool 2.” They’re most well-known for having written “Zombieland,” “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” and “Life.” If you haven’t seen “Deadpool 2” yet, it’s one of the funniest movies of the year. Definitely worth checking out while it’s in theaters.

A few quotes from the interview:

I know you guys were on set for the first Deadpool. You were on set for the sequel, and is it common for writers to be on set?

The budget for Deadpool 2 is much bigger than the original. Was it difficult to scale up to that?”

Deadpool’s kind of the master of that brand of “pull my finger” comedy. How do you know the line between a great joke and maybe one that’s just too juvenile?”
