It look like Robert Rodriguez is in negotiations with 2oth Century Fox to directed Marvel Comics Deapool. He’s currently filming his fourth Spy Kids Movie (“Spy Kids 4: Armageddon”) and would be talking on Deadpool after that wraps.
The project has had Ryan Reynolds attached to it for a few years, featuring the same character that he played in the Wolverine movie last year. The script from Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick’s (Zombieland) is rumored to have Reynolds super assassin character breaking the forth wall and talking to the audience. The comic was pretty adult, a lot of sharp wit, one liners, blood and killing.
I’m hoping that Fox doesn’t demand a PG 13 version . Rodriguez and Reynolds in a hard “R” Deadpool movie would be a Marvel geeks wet dream. Fox listened to Rodriguez on Predators (even if it did take more than 15 years) and that turned out pretty good. Hopefully they go the same route on Deadepool.
Till next time.
