Deadpool 3: Taika Waititi to direct Ryan Reynolds?

Fox is reportedly looking for a new director to helm the third movie in the Deadpool series

Published: 25th February 2020

Filmmaker Taika Waititi could direct Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool 3, according to reports. Deadpool 3 is yet to be officially announced but Waititi, who made his mark directing Thor: Ragnarok and Jojo Rabbit, is reportedly a prime contender for the third film of the franchise, which brings back Reynolds as the maverick superhero.

In May 2018, Deadpool 2 director David Leitch expressed interest to helm another Deadpool movie, although he had been signed only for the second instalment of the franchise.

"I would be grateful to work on something (starring Reynolds' Deadpool) again. It just depends on time and place, so we'll see what happens," Leitch had said at the time.

However, now it seems that Waititi could fill the director's chair for the project because, as it was first reported in 2016, Fox is looking for a new director to helm the third movie.

In October 2019, Reese and Wernick, who penned the first two films, said that they had a script in development for Deadpool 3, but were waiting for approval from Marvel Studios to begin production.

Reynolds had mentioned last December that Deadpool 3 is very much in the works.

Recently, Waititi won an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for Jojo Rabbit, thereby becoming the first person of Maori descent to win an Oscar.
