Deadpool 3 Director
Posted By:

Free Guy and The Adam Project director Shawn Levy is in negotiations to direct Deadpool 3.

This news comes just a few days after 20th Century Studios President Steve Asbell announced that a Free Guy 2 script was "days away".

This brings to mind a curious turn of phrase used by Shawn in a February interview with Collider when talking about Disney's eagerness to make a Free Guy sequel:

I've definitely gotten that phone call. I don't know how to quantify the how much, but that exact phone call that you just basically paraphrased, that's a call. I've gotten a few of those in the past several months. So there is definitely real interest there.

Money is money, right?

Not difficult to quantify at all.

Unless what was offered wasn't money alone, eg. the Deadpool 3 director's chair.

The first two Deadpool films were a collaboration between 20th Century and Marvel.

Both now owned by Disney.
