'John Wick' Director David Leitch Officially Confirmed to Helm 'Deadpool 2'
Deadpool 2 has officially gotten its director, signing heavily rumoured director of John Wick, David Leitch, to take the helm of the sequel to 2016's February hit film.
Leitch was picked out of a number of directors including Drew Goddard and Magnus Martens, following Tim Miller's departure from the film in late October.
Leitch's work on John Wick seems like a natural fore-bearer to his new role at the head of Deadpool 2. The neo-noir action film earned $86 million off of a $20 million budget. The sequel, which he isn't directing, arrives in February.
