Word is out that Fox has offered Robert Rodriguez the directing gig for Deadpool. The movie would center on the character, played by Ryan Reynolds, which appeared briefly in Wolverine. Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Zombieland) are writing the script.

Most recently Rodriguez executive produced Predators and is preparing to direct Spy Kids 4 and Sin City 3. He has already turned down an offer to direct the Planet of the Apes prequel so whether he will decide to take on Deadpool remains uncertain. The movie has been a bit on the back burner after Reynolds decided to star in Green Lantern but now talk is heating up on it again.
