In some unexpected news, director Tim Miller, who was expected to helm Deadpool 2, has left the project over creative differences with Ryan Reynolds.
Apparently, the exit happened yesterday and was an amicable one.
The director hadn’t officially signed on to direct the project but was developing the script and widely expected to be behind the camera of the sequel.
An exclusive report from Deadline reveals the following:
I’ve confirmed from studio insiders this exit was over mutual creative differences, but this all 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.”
When it comes to disputes with actors and directors, obviously, the actor will most likely win that battle. Here’s hoping that the film will still be as great as the first.
Deadpool 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on January 12, 2018.
