Editing on Deadpool

In episode 188 of The Cutting Room, Julian Clark sat down to talk about his work as editor on Deadpool (2016) and reveals a few little snippets to the listeners.  One being about how ambitious this project was, along with the time it took to place audio on the tracks, considering most of the movie was dubbed. This is due to Ryan Reynolds wearing a mask throughout the film.

Along with this, a lot of the original context of the script was changed due to order. The script was written in a non-linear style, and stayed that way but was pieced a little differently then what was intended. They went on to trying a linear form as well, but realized it just didn’t work and ruined the tone of the whole movie. Although Clarke nudges the film a little bit, in a new direction, it ultimately followed the screenwriter vision.
