Will Ryan Reynolds, Robert Rodriguez swim in ‘Deadpool’?
HollywoodNews.com: Is Fox’s “Wolverine” spinoff “Deadpool” in limbo?
The studio really wants Robert Rodriguez to direct – a good sign indicating that they’re happy with his cut of his exploitation actioner “Machete” due out on Friday.
However, there isn’t a window when Rodriguez and “Deadpool” star Ryan Reynolds are available.
News comes per Deadline and Collider.
Rodriguez is due to helm “Spy Kids 4” next. Reynolds is occupied with a number of other features including the Denzel Washington thriller “Safe House” and a Bradley Cooper buddy-cop action comedy.
“If they push it (‘Deadpool’) back, it would be a lot better for me,” Rodriguez tells Deadline.
Rodriguez’ “Machete” boasts an all-star cast including Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Lindsay Lohan, Jeff Fahey and Robert De Niro.
Audiences overall typically shell out more for Rodriguez’ “Spy Kids” installments over his high-octane action fare.
