Screw The Story: Visual Effects Guru To Direct ‘Deadpool’
Tim Miller, the visual effects wizard behind the first X-Men and countless other films has been hired to helm the installment. Few other details are available at this time, as Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are still writing the script.
For those unfamiliar, the character of Deadpool was a mercenary with terminal cancer who underwent the Wolverine treatment to heal. The treatment takes, but ironically leaves him covered in scars. Looks like Mr. Reynolds won't be pretty no more. Though Reynolds hasn't officially signed on, unless The Green Lantern puts up Pluto Nash-like numbers, expect Marvel to just start driving dump trucks of money to Reynold's opulent mansion. Congratulations on all your success, Ryan. (Deadline)
