It’s been a long time since we’ve heard anything on FOX’s Deadpool film project, and that’s because nothing is really happening with it right now. Apparently the studio is just kind of sitting on it, letting it collect dust. The director attached to Deadpool is Tim Miller and he’s part of the Goon Kickstarter campaign. He recently answered some questions in the comment section of the Kickstarter regarding Deadpool, and here’s what he had to say,
We’ve turned in an amazing script and done some early tests and visual development that–I’m confident–would get the fans stoked. And Ryan still loves the project. So it’s really up to Fox as to whether or not the film happens–all I can do is hope (and beg periodically) that it be allowed to move ahead.
Maybe now that comic writer Mark Millar is the Marvel creative consultant over at FOX he’ll be able to push this thing into production! We all want to see it happen, and it sounds like they have a great R-rated vision for it! Come on FOX let’s finally get this thing made!
