Director Tim Miller parted ways with the rest of his former collaborators on the ‘Deadpool 2’ movie Friday, with the term ‘creative differences’ used as the core cause of his exodus.

According to The Wrap, it seems that the film’s leading actor and producer Ryan Reynolds, who renegotiated his deal with Fox in the time since the first Deadpool           installment to include casting and “other creative controls,” had a different vision in a few key areas; the casting of long-time fan favorite Cable was possibly the main cause of the lack of resolution between the two.  It seems that Miller was exploring the option of casting actor Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights, Bloodline), and Reynolds was just not having it.

Any actor chosen for the role would ideally have some sort of chemistry with Cable’s ally with benefits, Domino (currently casting with a shortlist in tow), but there are still a lot of variables to mull over in that dilemma. I think Kyle Chandler is an incredible actor, but do I see him as Cable, the time-tumbling prodigal Summers son? Not really. I’m more on Reynolds’ side there. I’ve heard actor Stephen Lang‘s name being fervishly tossed around as a candidate, but I’m not sure how I feel about that quite yet, either. I’m sure we’ll get a lot of great contenders including him for the role as I’d love to see it done right. Crossing my fingers, and feeling confident putting my faith in Mr. Reynolds, as usual.

‘Deadpool 2’: Tim Miller Bows Out

Creative differences should be on the radar of pretty much any writing team as that thing you say when there’s nothing else to say, and listed as ‘that other silent killer.’ According to a Deadline Hollywood exclusive, Director Tim Miller has amicably stepped away from the upcoming ‘Deadpool 2,’ due to these aforementioned ‘creative differences’ between him and the film’s star and producer, Ryan Reynolds.

Creative differences should be on the radar of pretty much any writing team as that thing you say when there’s nothing else to say, and listed as ‘that other silent killer.’ According to Deadline, Director Tim Miller has amicably stepped away from the upcoming ‘Deadpool 2,’ due to these aforementioned ‘creative differences’ between him and the film’s star and producer, Ryan Reynolds. This news no doubt will make fans of the first Deadpool outing writhe in their collective seats a little (myself included), as the tone and delivery of the film’s cinematic feel and action was perhaps just eerily glorious.

Miller has been re-delegated by Fox to’Influx’ based off the David Suarez novel that will feature a Mark Bombek script, and is slated for a 2018 release.

Having been with Deadpool posse Ryan Reynolds, Rhett Reese,  and Paul Wernick since his 2011, it’s sad to see Miller go, but the days of future forward look promising for all those involved.

Ryan Reynolds’ “Very Special” Relationship with Deadpool

When I think of truly championing a project, I’d like to envision putting myself between my main character, and anyone that could compromise the integrity of his or her original voice. I’d love to think I would negotiate fiendishly to defend the authenticity of the character’s honor. Their likes and dislikes would be categorized. I’d be ready to dive into the trenches for them, for as long as it might take. Actor Ryan Reynolds has been such a champion for our beloved merc-with-a-mouth, Deadpool for a decade, and it hasn’t been an easy romp in the park.

I’d love to think I would negotiate fiendishly to defend the authenticity of the character’s honor. Their likes and dislikes would be categorized. I’d be ready to dive into the trenches for them, for as long as it might take. Actor Ryan Reynolds has been such a champion for our beloved merc-with-a-mouth, Deadpool for the better part of a decade, and it hasn’t been an easy romp in the park.

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Mr. Reynolds spoke about his casual to intimate relationship with the character, who’s R-Rated lifestyle hadn’t always been the ideal reel deal for unconvinced studio execs:

Deadpool is probably the most unpolished superhero out there, and it gave us this almost unfair advantage. We used this opportunity over and over because we had a character that is a total misfit and f—ing rascal. I can channel this guy in a way I just can’t seem to channel anything else. When it comes to Deadpool’s sensibility, and certainly his sense of humor, I feel like we were born on the same end of the spectrum.”

After a bit of test footage shot by director Tim Miller was leaked to the hungry jaws of the internet, Deadpool was green lit with shocking speed, and no one was more satisfied with that outcome than Reynolds himself. With a polite $60 million dollar budget as fashioned by Fox, he and fellow writers Rhett Reese, and Paul Wernick delivered an enormously successful, honest-to-merc version of the saucy, ‘tude toting Deadpool, and now look forward to the next chapter of his story as ‘Deadpool 2’ is currently casting and set for a 2017 release.

“There’s no one like him. He has a mercenary way of looking at things, and there’s a humor and darkness to his personality that allows you to take him to places that no other superhero character could enter. It’s a dream to be able to take on this role and push the envelope.”
