Dennison posted the same picture with the caption “ANNOUNCMENT: Next film in the making“.

Dennis came to prominence starring in the phenomenal (seriously, watch it if you haven’t) 2016 Taika Waititi film ‘Hunt for the Wilderpeople‘.

Waititi (also my husband), who had also previously worked with Ryan Reynolds on the 2011 ‘Green Lantern‘ film, tweeted his congratulations to both Dennison and Reynolds after the announcement:

Deadpool 2‘ is being directed by ‘John Wick‘s David Leitch and is set to be released in June next year.
