Tim Miller Exits As Director Of “Deadpool 2”

The first “Deadpool” was a success because of the push given by the key talents involved – actor Ryan Reynolds, director Tim Miller and writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.

Now it seems after a series of mutual creative differences between actor and director, Miller amicably exited the sequel late yesterday says Deadline. Miller 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.

The site says the studio is very high on Miller and the filmmaker will jump right into another big Fox project, the adaptation of the Daniel Suarez novel “Influx” which could potentially launch a trilogy. Filming on the “Deadpool” sequel is expected to get underway soon ahead of a 2018 release.
