20th Century Fox has decided on the director of the sequel " Deadpool " A month ago it became known that the director of the first film Tim Miller left the project due to creative differences with actor Ryan Reynolds. A few days later, Fox bosses made a list of candidates for the director's chair of the second film about the adventures of mercenary Wade Wilson . According to The Hollywood Reporter , David Leitch has emerged victorious from Deadpool II 's helmsman title.|
Leitch began his career in Hollywood as a stuntman. At one time, he had to perform incredible stunts in "300 Spartans", "Fight Club", the Matrix trilogy, "Ocean's Eleven" and many other films. He was awarded the prestigious Taurus award for his work on The Bourne Ultimatum.
Soon, the talented stuntman began staging stunts, and then began to receive invitations to work as a second director. He got the chance to make his debut as head of a production team in the action movie John Wick, which he filmed with his friend Chad Stahelski.
The main competitors of Leitch were Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman), Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) and Magnus Martens (Luke Cage / Luke Cage ). Last week, we reported that Fox has already begun planning work on the " Deadpool " triquel. Insiders do not exclude that the aforementioned trinity will remain on the pencil with the studio management, but already as contenders for the director's chair of the third film about a chimichanga lover.
Deadpool 2 is expected to begin filming early next year.
