Deadpool Film Waiting on Fox For the Go-Ahead


I’m pretty sure some fans have given up on the idea that Deadpool movie is ever going to happen. For the better part of three years now, that very project has been stuck in some form of development hell and can’t seem to find its way out. They’ve got a great script written by Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, a director in Tim Miller, who is chomping at the bit to get the film made, and of course, Ryan Reynolds is ready to don the black and red to portray the character. So, what’s the problem you ask? It looks as though former Fox CEO Tom Rothman was not a fan of the character, so he wasn’t willing to give the film a green light, but with him having recently stepped down, there may be some hope.

Director Tim Miller recently answered a single question regarding the Deadpool film and it’s good news for fans.

“We’ve turned in an amazing script and done some early tests and visual development that–I’m confident–would get the fans stoked,” Miller wrote. “And Ryan [Reynolds] still loves the project. So it’s really up to Fox as to whether or not the film happens–all I can do is hope (and beg periodically) that it be allowed to move ahead.”

But there is more good news from the rather outspoken creator of the Deadpool creator, Rob Liefield, who took to his Twitter account after hearing about Millers response. Here’s what he had to say:

Liefield goes on to reply to a question from a fan and says that Reynolds will be in full costume this time around, rather than the half-assed mess we saw in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Having seen the trailer for the new Deadpool game, there are no doubts that it will be a success and will hopefully prove to the execs at Fox that a Deadpool movie is worth the time and money. Not to mention that script! If they use the version that was leaked a few years ago, or some version of it, it’s a guaranteed hit.
