On the “Deadpool” movie front, director Tim Miller discusses his early pitch for the upcoming film.
Speaking on the Bootleg Universe Pitch Show , Miller elaborates on how he created Deadpool, and explains how hard his team worked to capture and maintain the character’s signature attitude from comic books.
“We come into Wade Wilson before he becomes Deadpool,” he explained. “All the ingredients are in place but they haven’t been mixed. We wrote the story in such a way that we get a really great introduction to Ryan [Wade Wilson] and what he cares about, and why he does this.”
Miller, better known as a visual effects artist also touched on using his background as an advantage.
“The original plan was for it to be an R-rated movie which means you know it can’t have a giant budget that some of the other films did. So I knew we would have to be clever about it,” he explained. “Coming from a visual effects background I’m not afraid to use it, I’m not afraid to have visual effects play a major role and be up front and center. We would do a lot of visual effects to enable us to get that big budget feel, but still contain things.”
“I always feel like it looks false, currently in a lot of superhero movies” director Tim Miller added. “You can see the wires and it kind of pulls me out of it. That’s not how they would move.”
The “Deadpool” movie features Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson a.k.a. Deadpool, Morena Baccarin (Homeland) as Vanessa Carlysle a.k.a. Copycat, Gina Carano (Haywire) as Angel Dust, T.J. Miller (Silicon Valley) as Weasel, Ed Skrein (Game of Thrones) as Ajax, and newcomer Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead.
With director Tim Miller behind the upcoming “Deadpool” movie in line, film opens in theaters on Feb. 12, 2016.
