Deadpool a no go for Robert Rodriguez?

Scheduling conflicts could see him pass on sequel


Robert Rodriguez has long been linked to a big screen Deadpool project, with persistent rumours insisting he’s about to make a deal to direct the comic book adap.

But Deadline now report that scheduling conflicts could once and for all sever Rodriguez's connections with the Merc with a mouth.

While star Ryan Reynolds is eager to play the titular role once more, after appearing as Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, he’s a busy fella with no less than nine other projects currently battling for his attention (among them R.I.P.D. and Gunsmoke).

Meanwhile, Rodriguez is locked into a deal to direct Spy Kids 4. Speaking to Deadline, the director said: “If they push it back, it would be a lot better for me.”

Will the stars eventually align for Rod and Reynolds? Clearly it’s a dream combo, so fingers crossed the movie Gods find a way.

Which are you more excited for – Spy Kids 4 or Deadpool? Talk it out below…

      Rodriguez is such a waste of talent, he'll make time for Spy Kids but not Sin City 2 ?
