Ryan Reynolds opens up about Deadpool and Tim Miller

It’s hard when a production team has to part ways with one of their key members. This goes especially deep when it’s the director that leaves the team. Actor Ryan Reynolds and director Tim Miller recently parted ways in regards to the production of Deadpool 2. There were many rumors about this, but we finally hear from Reynolds himself about the whole situation.

“We did every iteration of that script we possibly could come up with to please them and allow them to make the movie that looked vaguely like the movie we wanted to make. And in the end, we got to make the exact movie we wanted to make all along. There were drafts of the script that were sort of masked versions where we thought, Okay, if they let us do this, we’ll actually shoot this, and hopefully they won’t notice. And once the test footage leaked on the Internet, that created kind of a groundswell of support, which was the most invaluable tool we had to get the movie made. And the studio responded to that groundswell by saying, ‘Okay, here’s the absolute bare minimum amount of money that we will consider giving this character. Go make your movie, fuck off, and let us know when it’s done.” 

“Making the movie was very, very difficult. It was the most passionate group of individuals I’ve ever worked with in my life. And for whatever reason, that mercurial crazy burgoo of people is what made this thing work so well, not just because I had this vision and I saw it this way and it had to be this way. It worked because we all had that feeling. But there were vaguely scary fights in the post-production process that escalated quickly. Luckily, everybody’s grown up and at the end of the day enjoys and loves each other.”

“I know when I need to exert control, and I know when I need to let go of it. I’m not gonna go and sit with Tim Miller and say, ‘The visual effects of Deadpool need to be done this way.’ The man is a visual-effects wizard. But there are character and tone things that I know really well. And I’ve also been with this thing the longest out of anybody, aside from the guys that wrote the comics. Eleven years I’ve been trying to get this Sisyphus rock up the hill, and it kept rolling back on top of me. So I’m gonna be all the fuck over it from the moment it starts to the moment it finishes.”

Ryan Reynolds may just be an actor, but one fact about him is that he’s very loyal and passionate about the projects he’s involved with. No one can doubt his loyalties to the character Deadpool since he even states that he’s been working at it since the beginning. With or without Tim Miller, I have a feeling that the sequel to Deadpool will continue to push boundaries in the rated-R section of superhero characters movies and series.
