Robert Rodriguez Takes On “Deadpool”

Robert Rodriguez is “in active negotiations” to direct the “Deadpool” spin-off movie for 20th Century Fox says The L.A. Times.

During Comic Con last weekend, Rodriguez said he had received Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick’s script but was undecided if he would direct.

Ryan Reynolds will reprise the wise-cracking mercenary character he played in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”. Rodriguez would likely do the project once he finishes “Spy Kids 4: Armageddon” which he’s currently shooting.
