Shane Black Should Write & Direct Deadpool!
According to producer Lauren Shuler Donner she will make an announcement on writers for Deadpool in November. Usually when I give my thoughts on projects I point out many different writers or directors. This time there is one clear person for both jobs, Shane Black. Black may not be familiar to most but he's responsible for some amazing action films. He has an uncanny ability to combine slapstick comedy with large scale action films. Writing scripts for Richard Donner's Lethal Weapon series and The Last Boy Scout. Black isn't a stranger to pulp characters he's apparently working on a new Doc Savage film with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Transformers, Star Trek) serving as producers. Having Black aboard would also allow the film to be rated R, a hope of all fans of the Deadpool character.
LAST BOY SCOUT
Now you're wondering if he's a writer why should we let him direct? Well he's done an excellent job directing as well with Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. The film even broke the fourth wall which is an important element for a Deadpool movie. He also wrote Last Action Hero another massive action film that breaks the fourth wall.
