Twitter User Who "Pitched" Once Upon a Deadpool Has Spoken with Ryan Reynolds

Once Upon a Deadpool

News went viral yesterday that Twitter user Michael Vincent Bramley delivered an unsolicited pitch for the framing device for a PG-13 version of Deadpool 2 online and has since spoken with star and co-writer Ryan Reynolds.

Bramley had pitched a PG-13 alternate cut of the Fox film this past December with the framing device of Deadpool kidnapping actor Fred Savage to retell a more family-friendly version of the sequel, as an obvious nod to Savage's previous film The Princess Bride, which used the same framing device. Reynolds has since reached out to Bramley with the two men apparently reaching the understanding that the filmmakers using the same setup just happened to be an "insane coincidence."

Bramley confirmed the exchange over Twitter though the specifics of the conversation are unknown other than Reynolds was evidently "confused" at the eerie similarity between Bramley's pitch and Once Upon a Deadpool's alternate cut.

For ever ticket sold to Once Upon a Deadpool, $1 will be donated to the organization Fuck Cancer, which will change its name to the more PG-13-friendly "Fudge Cancer" for the duration of the 12 Days of Deadpool reflecting its more family-friendly targeted audience.
