Robert Rodriguez Still Contemplating Deadpool
08.18.10 by Ryan
Earlier this month, news spread that Robert Rodriguez was "in negotiations" to direct the upcoming X-Men Origins: Wolverine spin-off Deadpool, amidst growing speculation that Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds won't have time to appear in the movie, due to a rapidly filling schedule, including a Green Lantern sequel and an adaptation of the comic book R.I.P.D. in development. While said speculation may just be nothing more than rumor, Rodriguez's involvement remains in limbo.
The director told The LA Times that he is interested in Deadpool, but is still deciding on what to direct next. "It’s a great script and a great property," Rodriguez told the newspaper. "I’m just working everything out."
The Deadpool script was written by Zombieland screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and Rodriguez is deciding between their script, Sin City 2, or another, unnamed movie to be his next directorial project after finishing Spy Kids 4: Armageddon.
