It is no secret that Deadpool has been seeing a lot of critical and commercial success since its release just over a week ago. Because of this, a Deadpool sequel is going to cost 20th Century Fox a lot more for its main talent.
The Deadpool movie has made over $240 million and almost $500 million worldwide. Of this, Reynolds earned only $2 million upfront. Supposedly, he is the only cast member with the possibility of some box-office bonuses.
Director Tim Miller made even less with only $250,000 for the film. Luckily, he will likely earn some compensation based on the commercial success. Miller isn’t actually signed on for a Deadpool sequel just yet though. Fox will need to offer much more money to get him signed on for the follow-up.
Deadpool broke records with the biggest opening day ever for an R-rated movie. The sequel is already announced to include the fan-favorite team-up with Cable. We certainly have high expectations for the next Deadpool movie. 20th Century Fox better pay every penny that this creative team asks for. They’ve more than earned it.
