Rob Liefeld Says He's Seen 8 Minutes Of Test Footage From The DEADPOOL Movie
Well he hints at it in a silly "I may or may not have" kinda way. Regardless, he offers up some interesting details and if he is to be believed, there is some footage out there..somewhere!..
Bleeding Cool have picked up on an interesting conversation between Rob Liefeld and Scott Lobdell at last week's Amazing Arizona Comic Con. Liefeld reckons he's seen some test footage from the Deadpool movie Fox are working on, and that it's eight minutes of R rated Merc With A Mouth style mayhem..
They’ve got a great director on the movie, they’ve got a great script. I may or may have not seen some sort of test of footage that would blow your mind if you saw it and go holy crap and that’s Deadpool in costume. Katana swords, guns, shooting people’s faces off and making me laugh. And I may or may not have seen something that looks just like that. And you’ve got what would amount to the first R Rated X-Men movie. Because that script is R Rated.
They may or may not have wanted to shoot eight minutes to see how it would play. And all I can tell you, it’s close. It’s closer that it’s even been to going, or going Naaah, that’s too scary a proposition to make a R Rated Deadpool movie.”
We know that Tim Miller has signed on to direct the movie, but since that we haven't really heard much about it. Ryan Reynolds is still in line to play the character but he hasn't officially signed on yet as far as we are aware. But if Liefeld is on the level thsi sounds very promising, and at least confirms that they are making progress. Hopefully this footage finds its way online at some point, I won't hold my breath though.
