Ryan Reynolds To 'Pay Back' Favor Brad Pitt Had Done In Deadpool 2

One of the best parts of David Leitch's Bullet Train is Ryan Reynolds' cameo.

Ryan Reynolds was convinced to "Pay Back" Brad Pitt for his assistance in Deadpool 2 by the Bullet Train's director in a smart way.

The actor and the filmmaker had previously collaborated in Hobbs & Shaw and Deadpool 2. 

Leitch claimed in an interview with Insider that all it took to convince him to join Bullet Train was to remind him 

Ryan Reynolds' involvement in the 2022 action movie is about the same magnitude as Brad Pitt's role in Deadpool 2

I just suggested to him, "Why don't you pay Brad back for the appearance in Deadpool 2?"
