Ryan Reynolds Talks About New 'Deadpool 2' Director's Vision

Ryan Reynolds was directed in the first Deadpool movie by Tim Miller, but he departed the sequel due to creative differences and John Wick‘s David Leitch was hired.

“There is not a human being on earth that worked harder on Deadpool than Tim. He’s an incredibly, incredibly talented director,” Ryan said in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly. He was just named the mag’s Entertainer of the Year!

Ryan also opened up about the decision to hire David as the new director and the vision that the filmmaker will bring to the project.

“Everybody was just a fan of his work,” Ryan said. “He’s just a guy who’s so muscular with his action. He also really understands those Deadpool sensibilities and where we need to take the franchise from here. And I love John Wick. One of the things that David Leitch does that very few filmmakers can do these days is they can make a movie on an ultra tight minimal budget look like it was shot for 10-15 times what it cost.”
