One of the most fun things to do these days, is to take a photo of some Hollywood superstars together and come up with what movie project it must be that they are working on, as that must obviously be the only reason that they are together, right? Well that is exactly what happened earlier this year, when a picture went viral of Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds, with Wolverine actor Hugh Jackman, and British star Pierce Brosnan.
It did not take long for the rumour mill to kick into action, with people instantly assuming that it must be Deadpool 2 related and that it must mean that Pierce Brosnan will star as Cable in the film. Since then, the rumour has really taken pace and it has almost started to be talked about as a give, although Pierce has now spoken out about the rumour, insisting that he has not even been contacted about playing Cable in Deadpool 2.
Brosnan was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel, when he said to the host, "not true. Nothing’s come my way yet. We were sitting, waiting for a plane, the three of us, and the guy said, ‘Quick, let’s get a photograph,’ and [I] jump in the middle and Mr. Reynolds said, ‘Let’s do Three Wise Monkeys.’ [We] put it out there and it went viral. I don’t lie. They know where to find me, it’s just fabricated."
It would not be the first time that an actor has denied being involved in a movie project, before then being confirmed in the role a bit further down the line. With that said, it does actually sound like Pierce Brosnan is definitely interested in playing the role, so maybe now somebody can actually make it happen.
