Director Tim Miller exits DEADPOOL sequel

Deadpool director Tim Miller has departed the upcoming sequel to 20th Century Fox/Marvel’s hit action/comedy Deadpool due to reported ‘creative differences’ with star/producer Ryan Reynolds.

Deadpool, an R-rated spin-off of the X-Men franchise, was released in February and grossed an astounding $782m worldwide on a $58m budget, making it one of the most profitable films in cinema history.

Reynolds, who fought for a Deadpool solo movie following his unsuccessful appearance as the character in 2009’s X-Men Origins Wolverine, is a producer on Deadpool 2 alongside X-Men franchise caretakers Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner. Miller’s departure appears to be amicable, as he has already shifted gears to Fox’s sci-fi thriller Influx, which Mark Bomback is adapting from the novel by David Suarez with an eye towards a trilogy.


Filming on Deadpool 2 was planned for early 2017, although that may change as Fox searches for a replacement director. Screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who penned the first film, are returning to write the sequel.
