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.
