RYAN REYNOLDS is recruiting players from Wrexham for roles in his latest Deadpool film.
The Hollywood star is set to give cameo roles to top scorer Paul Mullin and goalkeeping hero Ben Foster when Deadpool 3 starts filming this month.
Reynolds is known for presenting his various projects together – and even wore one Wrexham Baseball cap in a trailer to promote his latest Deadpool movie.
The latest installment in the Deadpool series – also starring Wolverine Hugh Jackman – will even be filmed in the UK, making it easier for Wrexham players to participate.
Filming begins later this month at Pinewood Studios and the film will hit theaters next year.
When asked if any players could be in the film, Wrexham chief executive Humphrey Ker said, “If not, I’d be quite surprised.”
“Ryan is very good at layering all of his bits and pieces of his life and career and everything else, they’re all connected in very different ways.”
“I’m sure they will be, who knows Paul Mullin play an X-Men?”
Foster said: “I just had a chat with the chairman, the only Deadpool himself, Ryan Reynolds…
“He even said he’s going to put me in the new one with him and Big Hugh Jacko the damn Wolverine.”
The teaser for the new film revealed to fans how superstar Hugh Jackman will pardon his Wolverine character in the latest film.

Reynolds and his comedy pal Rob McElhenney documented their journey to buying the North Wales club in the documentary series ‘Welcome to Wrexham’ – and saw the team promoted to the Football League for the first time in 15 years.
To celebrate their promotion to League Two next year, The stars laid the groundwork for a luxury trip to Las Vegas for the team.
Film director Shawn Levy has complained that Reynolds is too obsessed with Wrexham to have time to film Deadpool 3.
Levy, who will direct the film, said: “His obsession with Wrexham and, by the way, his obsession with all of Wales for Ryan Reynolds is becoming increasingly problematic.”
“I’m trying to prepare to shoot Deadpool and he’s so distracted with this football team.”
“So no, I can’t get you tickets, and I have to downgrade his obsession because he won’t be getting any work done.”
