More details regarding Tim Miller’s exit from Deadpool 2 surfaced in the form of the two versions both Miller and the creative team had in mind for the movie. One wanted to make a more stylish sequel while the other wanted to maintain the raunchy comedy.
News reports previously announced that Tim Miller would no longer be serving as director for Deadpool 2, shocking the fans who are now also worried about the future of the movie. But it seems that there is more to this story of his exit due to creative differences with producer and star Ryan Reynolds.
News reports state that it was not just Reynolds whom Miller was having clashing opinions with, but also with the movie’s writers, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
Reynolds, Reese and Wernick all agreed on the same vision: to make a raunchy yet inexpensive movie, following in the footsteps of the first and highly successful Deadpool movie.
Miller, on the other hand, wanted a more stylized version of the Deadpool sequel. Miller wanted to make Deadpool 2 a movie that can compete with the other big-budgeted superhero movies. But it would cost three times as much of their initial budget.
In the end, Reynolds, Reese and Wernick’s take ultimately won which resulted in Miller leaving the project.
Fortunately, Miller’s departure from the project was amicable and that means there was no bad blood between the two parties. Fox got him to direct another project called Influx, a movie adaptation of the cyber-crime thriller written by Daniel Suarez.
In other news, a petition is circulating around the internet calling for Quentin Tarantino to take over as director of Deadpool 2. Deadpool 2 does not have a release date yet, and producers are currently on the lookout for who to cast as mutants Cable and Domino for the movie’s sequel. No word yet on who is on the list to play Cable, but a number of actresses like Lizzy Caplan and Mary Elizabeth Winstead are considered for the role of Domino.
