Deadpool 2: Director Tim Miller Not Directing Sequel

film-news-deadpool-2-director-tim-miller-exits-sequelDeadline exclusively reports that Deadpool director Tim Miller will not be carrying on his directing duties for Deadpool 2 after a series of creative differences with star Ryan Reynolds.


The report states that though Miller hadn’t formally signed a deal to continue, he was developing the script for the sequel and by all accounts had planned to return behind the camera for a 2018 release. Sources tell Deadline that the exit was over mutual creative differences, with Fox studios still holding Miller to high regard, so much so that he’ll jump right into another film project for the studio: Influx, an adaptation of the David Suarez novel that Mark Bomback has adapted a screenplay of in the hopes of launching a film trilogy.


Deadpool remains the biggest success story of 2016, with the R-Rated superhero film making $782m worldwide on a $58m budget. The news of Tim Miller’s departure comes as a surprise to me, given how long he, Reynolds, Reese and Wernick have been working on the original film and it seemed like a given that the team would band together again for the sequel. It’s a shame and I’m sure some that loved Deadpool will start to worry now about who will helm the sequel.
Deadpool 2 is still scheduled for cinematic release on the 12th January 2018.
