Deadpool has long been synonymous with the names Ryan Reynolds and Robert Rodriguez.
But thanks to Rodriguez’s interminably busy-as-a-Christmas-elf movie schedule – which includes the treasure trove of CGI horrors that will certainly be Spy Kids 4 and the long in demand Sin City 2 – 20th Century Fox are seeking out plan B directing alternatives.
One name that’s leapt onto their list is Swedish ad/video director Adam Berg, whose award-winning commercial Carousel grabbed the Cannes Lions International Advertising prize in 2009.
24 Frames are now reporting that Berg is a “top contender” to take on the project if Rodriguez is unable to.
While this would be a definite blow for Rod lovers (us included) salivating at the prospect of seeing him take on another comic book adap, if there’s no way for him to physically make Deadpool, Berg is definitely somebody who could bring the movie to life with style.
Just check out the Carousel ad for yourself, a mad mix of Dark Knight and The Matrix…
