Director Edgar Wright Passed on the 'Deadpool' Movie

Ant-Man Director Edgar Wright actually was in the running to direct 'Deadpool'

Once upon a time there was an amazing script in the works for Deadpool. Written by the due behind Zombieland Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. It was being face tracked by FOX with actor Ryan Reynolds attached. The film script leaked online and was met with such eminence praise that VFX director Tim Miller was signed on to direct in his first feature length film. The team of Miller/Reynolds actually made a short 3-min test footage trailer from one of the first scenes in Deadpool. Its still yet to be released to the public.....

But back up a few. Before FOX attached Tim Miller it was looking at some big Rated-R heavy hitter directors. One being Machete's Robert Rodriguez. He passed on the film to direct Spy Kids 4. But now a brand new name has popped up who was once asked to direct the Merc with a Mouth....Ant-Man Director Edgar Wright!

 Now we all know what happened. After being fast tracked back in 2009 its literally sat on FOX's back burner this entire time due to being a hard R film. And the rest is history...

Would you have liked seen director Edgar Wright take on the Merc with a Mouth?!

Deadpool is currently on the back burner at FOX
