Deadpool Movie Director Says It’ll Be “F—— Awesome,” Just Needs a Green Light

Ever since Ryan Reynolds brought Deadpool to life in the comic book character’s first live-action screen appearance for the dreaded ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine,’ fans have been pining for “the merc with a mouth” to get his own solo movie. Unfortunately, this has been one of those films trapped in development hell, but director Tim Miller “will never give up.” In fact, both him and Reynolds seem pretty optimistic that it will get made … eventually.

Speaking with Clevver Movies about the arduous process of scoring financing for a standalone Deadpool movie, Miller said:

Deadpool is still alive and we’re just waiting for the studio to embrace what an amazingly f—ing awesome film this would be. Ryan is ready, I am ready, the fans are more than ready, we just need that elusive green light.

Currently, Miller says ‘Zombieland’ writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who wrote the original treatment, have submitted another draft for consideration. Appropriately, Reynolds, who’s been attached to the star in the film for years, has said the story is very similar in style to the writers’ zombie comedy.

But if you need more of a positive note to keep your hopes alive, Reynolds recently stated he’s confident the pic will be made in our lifetime. “[In] its current iteration the movie’s actually very small. There’s minimal impact to the studio, which is the way we’re kind of presenting it to them. We’re saying ‘Look, the budget is minimal. Therefore, can we do this the way it should be done?’ Which unfortunately needs a Rated R or it needs those elements.”
