Tim Miller is a visual effects specialist who worked on multiple “X-Men” movies, and is the director attached to the long-gestating “Deadpool” movie. He has also confirmed star Ryan Reynolds’ recent comments that the film adaptation of the famed mercenary comic character is moving forward, albeit slowly.
Screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (“Zombieland,” “G.I. Joe Retaliation”) have turned in a new and well-regarded draft of the script, those involved are ready to make it – it’s now all up to 20th Century Fox to give the film the go ahead. Miller tells Clevver Movies that the project is closer to happening than it was just two months ago:
“We will never give up!. 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.”
