We have one last bit of news to add from today’s livestream show from San Diego Comic-Con and it involves Mr. Robert Rodriguez and “Deadpool.” In discussing his very busy schedule, which includes finishing “Machete” and then starting “Spy Kids 4,” Rodriguez confirmed the rumors that he’s being considering to direct the “Deadpool” movie, and where he is in accepting or passing on the project.
“They sent me a script to read, [but] I’ve been really swamped with this other stuff,” Rodriguez said. “I’ve not decided whether … anything I do would be after ’Spy Kids’ — that gives some breathing room. So whether or not I would help develop or not is the question right now.”
And what did he think of the script? “It was really good,” Rodriguez enthused. “It wasn’t supposed to be sent out, it was one of those early drafts, they were probably like ’Robert just finished ’Predators,’ let’s see what he thinks at this early stage’ … I got an early sneak peek at it.”
Rodriguez added that he is a fan of Ryan Reynolds continuing with the role and that he did a great job in working with the writers. Also, that the script calls for Reynolds’ Deadpool to break the fourth wall and talk to the audience.
“He had some really great ideas. Ryan is cool,” he said. “I liked his ideas and his passion for that project.”
