Deadline reports that Deadpool director Tim Miller has exited Deadpool 2 over creative differences with producer and star Ryan Reynolds.
After a series of creative differences between Deadpool director Tim Miller and star Ryan Reynolds, Miller has exited Deadpool 2. He hadn’t formally signed a deal to continue, but he was developing the script and by all accounts had planned to return behind the camera for a film Fox will release in 2018.
Keep in mind, the sequel is a priorty for Fox, while without an official production start/release dates.
Miller will instead jump onboard another Fox project titled Influx.
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.
It’s unknown who’ll be replacing Miller as director.
