The Deadpool movie has seen better days, between script leaks and choice directors turning away from the project to stars interested but not sure if they can commit. What Deadpool does have going for it is a pair of talented writers in Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, a very dedicated fanbase and a perfect star in Ryan Reynolds. With all of this it would still only be worth doing if it was done right and today that's exactly what Robert Liefeld, the character's creator, wants Fox to do. Liefeld voiced his concerns through his Twitter account today and he didn't hold back.
"Dear FOX studios, get your act together. Deadpool is not Green Lantern, not a family film. DP is "filthy" think Expendables $$ w/ RR"
"Also FOX, find your balls and film the script from Rheese[sic] and Wernick. You will make loads of money and thank yourself later."
"Dear FOX, these five will show up and slice your nutz if you screw DP up! http://twitpic.com/3c8ym2"
"FOX is always worrisome to me @JStud_ Not exactly the greatest track record. DP is in their hands.""It boils down to this, Ryan Reynolds, Mr. Sexiest Man alive paired with best comic script ever written, no-brainer....make Deadpool happen!"
"43 is the new 72 for me....i just speak my mind and don't give a crap....grumpy old Liefeld."
There are no signs that this is a reaction to something, apart from Fox's action to sue a housewife for $15 million dollars this week for hosting the leaked script amongst an online library, its been pretty quiet on the Deadpool front. Its always good when Creator/writers make their voices heard but whether a company like Fox will pay attention is another matter.
