Rodriguez out of Deadpool?

Rodriguez out of Deadpool?

The last we heard regarding a film centred on the character ‘Deadpool’ was that talks between Robert Rodriguez and Fox Studios were in trouble due to scheduling conflicts for Rodriguez.

Well it now seems that Fox aren’t willing to wait for things to free up for Rodriguez as the LA Times reports he’s definitely off the project and Adam Berg is now under consideration.

Berg is a relative unknown not having directed a feature film before, however he seems to be a strong contender due to the work he did on the short film “Carousel”.

Overall this is a bit disappointing, Rodriguez involvement in the film was looking interesting and his take on the character was one that I was looking forward to seeing. To go from that prospect to one where we just have little idea on what to expect is quite anti-climatic, but we’ll wait and see how things progress.

Without any serious production happening just yet, this is still looking to be a year or so away. You’ll have to stick to comics for now if you want some Deadpool in your diet.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
