Ryan Reynolds Wraps Filming on Deadpool Sequel
Oct 16, 2017 by: WENN
Ryan Reynolds has wrapped filming on his troubled Deadpool sequel.
The 40-year-old shared a sweet post on Instagram on Saturday as work on the movie came to a close.
"That’s a wrap on Deadpool 2: A Song of Fire and Ice!" Reynolds wrote, jokingly referring to the title of a Game of Thrones novel. "Thank you to our beloved Captain, Mr. @davidmleitch... words are too clumsy to properly acknowledge your giant heart and talent."
"I love my hometown of Vancouver and our obscenely gifted crew," he added alongside a series of behind-the-scenes snaps from the Canadian film set. "From our PA's, (who are first in and last out) to our set decorators and prop departments, riddling this film with Easter Eggs in almost every scene... Thank you. I already miss being on set. Which is why I’ve decided to continue shooting the film in my underwear from Josh Brolin’s well appointed living room. #MaximumEffort."
Filming the movie has been difficult for the cast and crew following the tragic death of female stunt performer Joi Harris in August. She died after losing control of her motorcycle while performing a stunt as the character Domino, played by actress Zazie Beetz. She crashed through the glass of the Shaw Tower's ground floor studio in Vancouver.
Production was immediately shut down as officials launched an investigation into the road racer's death, and the film's star led a brief on-set memorial when filming resumes five days later.
Reynolds also sent his condolences to Harris' family and friends, stating: "I'm deeply saddened by the loss of one of our stunt performers today. No words can express how I and the rest of the Deadpool 2 crew feel about this tragedy. Our thoughts are with her family, friends and loved ones in this difficult time."
Deadpool 2 is set for release in June, 2018.
