Tim Miller Drops Out Of 'Deadpool' Sequel; Creative Differences At Fault

Deadline are reporting that Tim Miller, director of the first Deadpool film, has dropped out from directing duties for the sequel.

The site, which is quite reputable, claims that Miller is leaving due to creative differences with Ryan Reynolds, who has been championing the Merc with the Mouth role since X-Men Origins: Wolverine. It is noted however that it was for mutual creative differences and it ended with no bad blood for one another.

Miller will be moving to another FOX film, Influx, an adaptation of the David Suarez novel, leaving the Deadpool sequel without a director. The sequel however will still have writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick who both wrote the first film, which grossed over $750 million in box office revenue. The sequel was to be released sometime in 2018 but that may not be the case for now.

Logan opens in U.S. theaters on March 3rd, 2017, followed by unannounced X-Men films on October 6th, 2017 (possibly Gambit), March 2nd, 2018 (possibly Deadpool 2), and June 29th, 2018 (possibly New Mutants). X-Force is also in development.
