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.
