Has Fox been shooting Deadpool on the sly?
The last time we heard anything even half-way official on the long-gestating DEADPOOL project was way back in 2010 when Robert Rodriquez talked about possibly signing on to direct. We then speculated as to whether Ryan Reynolds would even have time to make DEADPOOL, what with GREEN LANTERN's sequel schedule and his commitment to R.I.P.D.
But now there are rumblings that something has been going on behind the scenes, so to speak. Original DEADPOOL artist Rob Liefeld recently spoke on a panel at the Amazing Arizona Comic Con, and amidst comic book talk and the like he was heard to say this little snippet of awesomeness:
"They've got a great director on the movie, they've got a great script. I may or may not have seen some sort of test footage that would blow your mind if you saw it and 'go holy crap that's Deadpool in costume.' Katana swords, guns, shooting people's faces off and making me laugh. And I may or may not have seen something that looks just like that. And you've got what would amount to the first R Rated X-Men movie. Because that script is R Rated. They may or may not have wanted to shoot eight minutes to see how it would play. And all I can tell you, it's close. It's closer than it's ever been to going, or going 'Nahhh, that's too scary a proposition to make an R Rated Deadpool movie."
So there you have it. Sounds more like the man's gleefully trying to hide what he has seen so as not to get in trouble, rather than purposefully shrouding the truth in web upon web of mystery the way some people like to do.
Hopefully we'll hear more soon, now that there's actual footage floating around.
