Robert Rodriguez Offered <em>Deadpool</em>?

According to ThePlaylist(via production weekly), 20th Century Fox have offered Rodrieguez the directing gig for the upcoming Deadpool movie..

ThePlaylist reveals that Robert Rodriguez(Sin City, Predators(producer) has been offered the directors chair for the upcoming X-Men Origins: Wolverine spin off, Deadpool, starring Ryan Reynolds..

Robert Rodriguez has been offered to direct "Deadpool" by 20th Century Fox tipped to us by the latest issue of Production Weekly and confirmed to us by a sources very close to the project. It is something he is considering, but that's it at the moment.

Its been fairly quiet on the Deadpool front for a while. Last we heard the script was being finalized by the Zombieland writing team, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and Ryan Reynolds said he was happy with the direction it was going. Now, if this is true, Rodrieguez may be considering taking the reigns. I'm not his biggest fan, and think that most of the time his movies are all style over substance, but that being said , Deadpool may be right up his alley. Many fans were left disappointed(to say the least) by the Merc With A Mouth's big screen debut in Wolverine, but Reynolds has said that this upcoming solo movie will go a long way to righting a lot of those wrongs. As for Rodrieguez, well, Fox have also recently offered him the Planet Of The Apes reboot on which he passed. Will he follow suit with Deadpool?
