Re: Deadpool Spin-off Confirmed - Part 1
I have a bad feeling about this. Strauss brothers anyone? Remember when they hired them to direct the sequel to Alien vs. Predator because they had their own visual effect house and could make the film for a very attractive price.
Same thing going on with Deadpool I think. Since the movie is going to be R, they don't want to spend a huge amount of money on it (Ryan Reynolds is already going to cost a lot) so they wanted to hire somebody who could direct the film as well as supervise the visual effects (two jobs for the price of one! Very advantageous for Fox!) so that they can spare money in that department.
I know nothing about this guy so maybe he's gonna do good and but the intentions are not there as far as Fox is concerned. The idea behind hiring this guy is clearly to save as much money as they can. Well. I guess we'll see how that turns out...
It will be a stronger world, a stronger loving world, to die in.
