The main contender for the directorial post of the movie "Deadpool 2" was the director of the action movie "John Wick" David Leitch. According to the Mashable publication, citing its sources, his candidacy is supported by the leading actor and producer of the movie Ryan Reynolds.
Leitch has not yet received an official proposal from 20th Century Fox, but knowledgeable sources claim that this is almost a resolved issue. It should be noted that the interests of Leitch and Reynolds are represented by the same agency WME. In addition, both of them have previously collaborated: Leitch was the stunt coordinator on the set of X-Men Begins: Wolverine.
Recall that in mid-October 2016 it became known that the creator of the first "Deadpool" Tim Miller refused to work on the sequel. The reason cited was "creative differences" with Reynolds himself. The partners allegedly did not agree on the style of the sequel, as well as on the performer of the role of the character, nicknamed Cable.
The action movie John Wick was released in 2014 and grossed $ 130 million from a production budget of $ 20 million. The project has earned flattering reviews from critics and the status of a cult among fans of the genre.
