Fox has already replaced Tim Miller with David Leitch for Deadpool sequel and now Ryan Reynolds finally speaks about Tim Miller’s departure from Deadpool 2.
Miller departed from the project due to mutual creative differences but he left on good terms.
Fox has already assigned a new project to Miller, he will helm Fox’s upcoming sci-fi Influx, an adaptation of the Daniel Suarez novel with Mark Bomback scripting the film and it is expected to launch a trilogy.
Ryan Reynolds goes on talk about how hard it was to keep the project alive: “Making the movie was very, very difficult.
It was the most passionate group of individuals I’ve ever worked with in my life. And for whatever reason, that mercurial crazy burgoo of people is what made this thing work so well, not just because I had this vision and I saw it this way and it had to be this way.
It worked because we all had that feeling. But there were vaguely scary fights in the post-production process that escalated quickly. Luckily, everybody’s grown up and at the end of the day enjoys and loves each other.”
He adds, “I know when I need to exert control, and I know when I need to let go of it. I’m not gonna go and sit with Tim Miller and say, ‘The visual effects of Deadpool need to be done this way.’
The man is a visual-effects wizard. But there are character and tone things that I know really well. And I’ve also been with this thing the longest out of anybody, aside from the guys that wrote the comics.
Eleven years I’ve been trying to get this Sisyphus rock up the hill, and it kept rolling back on top of me.
So I’m gonna be all the fuck over it from the moment it starts to the moment it finishes,” he concluded.
The sequel will be directed by David Leitch, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who penned Deadpool, will return for the sequel.
It will be produced by Reynolds, Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner. There’s currently no word yet on when the filming will being for Deadpool 2.
Deadpool 2 is still without a release date.
