The Hunt is on for a <em>Deadpool</em> Writer and Director

The Green Lantern movie ball is rolling, but what's happening with Ryan Reynold's other superhero project? The Merc with a Mouth himself dishes on screenwriters, studio meetings and...Tarantino?

Many comic fans are wondering about the status of the Deadpool solo film. MTV got a chance to catch up with Ryan Reynolds, who shed some light on the current production's progress:

"I think at this point everyone's just focused on getting the right script and the right tone and the right writer involved and I think from there, the world's your oyster," explained Reynolds of the film's current status. "If you get that right, you're going to get an amazing director."

No screenwriters have yet been linked to the project. Will we be hearing any definitive news anytime soon? Reynolds had this to say,

"That's just right now being decided," he said. "There's been a lot of meetings and we've met with a bunch of different writers, all of which had amazing and slightly disparate takes from one another. So we're figuring that out right now. Hopefully soon."

There are many A-list directors that could do this property justice. Reynolds has one in mind that few would have considered.

"You think directors for a movie like this and you immediately picture [Quentin] Tarantino or somebody like that. Obviously Tarantino is a guy that likes to direct his own material, so there's a good chance he wouldn't be the guy. We all have our lists of dream directors."

MPP - What do you guys think? Should Tarantino be a top contender to helm the Deadpool movie?
