Yes, you read it correctly, our long awaited dreams of a Deadpool movie are about to come true!
So Director Tim Miller says in his latest interview:
Deadpool is still alive and we're just waiting for the studio to fully realize what an AMAZINGLY FUCKING AWESOME film this would be. Ryan is ready, I am ready, the fans are MORE than ready—we just need that elusive greenlight!
The LA Times and Deadline are reporting that Fox has chosen Tim Miller to direct the Deadpool movie. Miller has worked visual effects for several movies including X-Men, X2, Daredevil, and Scott Pilgrim vs the World. This would be his directorial debut.
I can only agree with this, he is the man for the job! What do you think?
As you may know director Tim Miller already shot a test-footage for the movie, which was more than successful. Rob Liefeld at ComicCon hinted about the footage:
They’ve got a great director on the movie, they’ve got a great script. I may or may have not seen some sort of test of footage that would blow your mind if you saw it and go holy crap and that’s Deadpool in costume. Katana swords, guns, shooting people’s faces off and making me laugh. And I may or may not have seen something that looks just like that. And you’ve got what would amount to the first R Rated X-Men movie. Because that script is R Rated.
They may or may not have wanted to shoot eight minutes to see how it would play. And all I can tell you, it’s close. It’s closer that it’s even been to going, or going Naaah, that’s too scary a proposition to make a R Rated Deadpool movie.
Not to mention the fact that the screenwriters, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick stated the following:
We have a phenomenal director in Tim Miller, who did about a 3-minute test for Fox, and Ryan [Reynolds] came in to do the mo-cap for it and the voice. And it’s like the greatest three minutes ever.
Then again, we are waiting since the 2009 "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" for this histerically funny superhero to get his own film adaptation. They are bullshitting us for 4 years now, and they still tell us that we have to wait for the approval of some fat-boring-multi-millionare producer that fears he might not score enough on this movie, to buy his 4th house.
Will this film ever come out? What do you think? Feel free to leave a comment, and don't forget to share this with your friends.
