Fans Are Petitioning for Quentin Tarantino to Direct 'Deadpool 2'
Published Oct 24, 2016Deadpool is officially the highest grossing R-rated movie of all time, so naturally there is a lot of anticipation for its sequel. That said, the project has hit a major roadblock after director Tim Miller quit over the weekend.
The Hollywood Reporter explained that Miller exited the project over a variety of creative differences with actor and producer Ryan Reynolds. As rumours swirl about the details, one thing is abundantly clear — the project is in desperate need of a new director.
A man named Carl Champion, Jr. has decided to take matters into his own hands, launching a Change.org petition to have celebrated director Quentin Tarantino sign on to helm the project.
In the write-up, Champion, Jr. suggested that this would be Tarantino's chance to helm a "project almost guaranteed to make a billion dollars."
"Quentin Tarantino is the master of writing dialogue, and Ryan Reynolds is a master of delivering dialogue," he said. "Tarantino makes ultra-violent movies where you love the characters, with horrible language, sexy women, and a villain you will NEVER forget. Tell me Marvel doesn't need another one of those."
