Deadpool director Tim Miller has given up his directorial duties for the upcoming sequel, Deadpool 2. According to a report from The Wrap, creative differences may have led up to Miller’s decision to walk out on the project.
According to the report, Miller wanted a more “stylized” sequel while actor and star, Ryan Reynolds, wanted the film to retain the first movie’s “raunchy comedy style”. To add more tension between the two, Miller wanted to cast actor Kyle Chandler in the role of Deadpool’s ally Cable but Reynolds did not agree with this decision.
In the end, 20th Century Fox agreed with Reynolds which prompted Miller’s departure. When this news first broke it was said that the split was amicable, though according to The Wrap’s report the relationship between Miller and Reynolds had been contentious for some time.
At this time, there has been no announcement of who might replace Miller.
