He met with Studio Exec to talk EXCLUSIVELY about the film and his plans. We asked how the director of the Werkmeister Harmonies, Satantango and The Turin Horse ended up directing the follow-up to the hit of the year, Deadpool:
They asked me if I wanted to direct Deadpool. I said yes. It starts with the word dead. I liked that.
Will you be maintaining Deadpool’s irreverent tone and humor?
Erm. Are you a fan of the comic books?
Comic books? Comic books are for children. Do I look like a child to you?
No. I suppose, just that Deadpool is based on a comic book. So I thought… How are you going to handle the action sequences? You haven’t really had much experience of action sequences.
No action sequences. Just long shots of Deadpool. He takes a horse to a well. But there’s no water in the well. The horse dies. Then Deadpool dies. The end. Three hours, twenty-five minutes.
Deadpool 2: Deadpool and the Dead Horse will be released in 2018.
