We've heard a whole lot about a "Deadpool" movie over the years, but we've seen tragically little action. But that's not due to lack of work on the part of director Tim Miller and his team.
Miller, currently advocating on behalf of the "Goon" Kickstarter campaign, recently fielded a question about progress on "Deadpool." At the moment, it appears that the decision of whether or not to move forward is completely in Fox's hands.
"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," said Miller. "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."
When last we checked in with Reynolds about the project, the "Green Lantern" star said that "the script is there, everything just comes down to budget and time."
"If it comes together the way it should, which is rated R and a little bit outside of the box, then yeah, for sure," he added when asked if "Deadpool" was still something he wanted to do.
But those comments came tragically close to a year ago. Given Miller's latest update, it looks like we're just nowhere closer to the "Deadpool" movie we're all patiently waiting for.
