Deadpool 2 has reportedly found its new director in David Leitch.
Miller, who directed the first Deadpool, stepped away from the sequel just a few weeks ago over creative differences with Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds.
The director reportedly had a much more stylish version in mind, which would have cost three times that of the original, and wanted Friday Night Lights star Kyle Chandler to play Cable, a casting choice Reynolds wasn’t on board with.
According to Deadpool co-screenwriter Paul Wernick, Deadpool 2 is taking a smaller budgeted approach and won’t be inundated with X-Men characters. Meanwhile, Fox is reportedly already planning Deadpool 3, which may introduce X-Force.
