Ryan Reynolds Speaks Out About New Director David Leitch on 'Deadpool 2'
Deadpool 2 lost its director, Tim Miller, and fans were in a little bit of a panic as a result. The split came as a result of creative disputes between director and his producer Ryan Reynold. Now, John Wick director David Leitch has joined on, and fans are confident that the series can course-correct its behind-the-scenes process.
Speaking with EW, Reynolds say that "everybody was just a fan of [Leitch's] work. He's just a guy who's so muscular with his action. He also really understands those Deadpool sensibilities and where we need to take the franchise from here.
"And I love John Wick. One of the things that David Leitch does that very few filmmakers can do these days is they can make a movie on an ultra tight minimal budget look like it was shot for 10-15 times what it cost.”
Reynolds has so far been adamant that the sequel cannot go bigger than the first one, as it needs to maintain the same tone, style, and humour, and not get carried away with its blockbuster potential.
