DEADPOOL Director Tim Miller Drops Out of Sequel Due to Creative Differences with Ryan Reynolds
Whoa, wait... what!? That's right folks, Tim Miller, the director of the incredibly awesome Deadpool movie that fans fell in love with has dropped out of the sequel. This news was completely unexpected and I've gotta say... incredibly sad to hear. These two guys made such a great badass first movie together.
The news comes from Deadline who says that his departure was due to creative differences with Ryan Reynolds. It seemed like these two talented individuals made a great team who both wanted to make the best possible Deadpool films for the fans. I guess this means that it's going to be Reynolds' vision of the film or nothing.
The report says that Miller's time on the project "ended amicably and the studio is very high on Miller and the expectation is the filmmaker will jump right into another big Fox project: Influx, an adaptation of the David Suarez novel that has a Mark Bomback script and is expected to launch a film trilogy." So at least Miller is jumping on another cool film project to work on.
I was just pumped up about seeing the same team that brought the magic to the first Deadpool movie come back together for Deadpool 2 and now that's gone. I wonder who Reynold's and the producers will bring on to replace Miller. It's a bloody shame that Miller and Reynolds couldn't work out their differences.
Will the sequel be an inferior film because of Miller's exit? The first film just seemed like such a collaborative effort. Is Reynolds the true brains behind the operation? We know the guy is extremely passionate about Deadpool and has such a deep love and respect for the character and the source material, so I don't think he'll steer it in the wrong direction.
What do you all think about Miller dropping out of Deadpool?
