Tim Miller Reportedly Wanted To Spend Upwards Of $150 Million On DEADPOOL Sequel

More details about the "creative differences" between Ryan Reynolds and Tim Miller have surfaced, and it sounds like the director's plans for the Deadpool sequel wouldn't have led to a worthy follow-up.

The Wrap has a new piece up about the recent reveal that director Tim Miller won't return to direct Deadpool 2, and it's beginning to sound like the sequel may be better off with a new filmmaker at the helm. Apparently, Ryan Reynolds and writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick wanted to once again make a "scrappy, raunchy and inexpensive movie" similar to the first, but Miller was keen on a more stylish take which would have cost three times as much and been more like regular superhero movies.

There's advantages to both approaches, but a $150 million Deadpool movie would definitely come out vastly different to what preceded it, and it's easy to imagine the charm being lost along the way.

"There were two totally different movies on the table, and one of them just wasn’t Deadpool," an insider familiar with both versions of the sequel told the trade. For better or worse, Reynolds, Reese and Wernick's vision ultimately won, and the hunt for a new director has no doubt already begun.
