Many Deadpool fans were probably surprised to hear that director Tim Miller dropped out of the sequel over creative differences with Ryan Reynolds (who is both the star and a producer). But that is only a fraction of how surprising it would be if Quentin Tarantino stepped in to both write and direct the film. Regardless, a Change.org petition calling for that very thing is going strong. At the time of writing, the petition is just shy of the 7500 signature goal.
If there was ever a chance to see Tarantino do a project almost guaranteed to make a billion dollars, this is it. We got a great taste of what this could be like in Kill Bill, but imagine having a guy like Tarantino write dialogue for The Merc with the Mouth! It would be so glorious. Join me!
The idea is extremely interesting of course. But, in my opinion, Quentin Tarantino is best when he’s doing his own thing. And when it comes to Deadpool 2, I trust Ryan Reynold’s judgement seeing as how he is basically Deadpool in real life.
