In the discussions that have accompanied the release of Terminator : Dark Fate, Tim Miller will have had, on several occasions, the opportunity to go back on the case Deadpool 2. Responsible for the staging on the first pane, the director had slammed the door for the development of the second under the fire of rumors and speculations varied. A time, the theory was that the role of Cable would have been at the origin of the conflict, or that the Fox did not wish to bring the hand to the pocket for a project deemed too costly.
“What was clear is that Ryan Reynolds wanted to be in control of this franchise. Some directors manage to work like that, but not me. I don’t have a problem with discussing some of the decisions, but if I have no way to make me hear, I don’t want to discuss. And I don’t think that we need to negotiate with each decision made in the process of creation, there are just too many things on which we must fight. And then, Ryan has been the figurehead of Deadpool, he was the most important element, by far. So if he decides to take control, he takes control.
I’ve always been pretty good at switching to something else. At the beginning, I really want to get involved, and then at a given time, I have come to this moment where there was a decision to make, and it turns out that I am rather gifted to put it behind me. We had a meeting at the Fox, the agenda was clear, so I told them ‘I have entered, I resign, and you have to do what you want.'”
Instead, Reynolds to be responsible for yet another case of “woman in the fridge” into murdering the heroine in the beginning of the movie, to serve as a motivational story to the hero. However, the very grumpy Tim Miller will recently said that the experience of Terminator : Dark Fate will not have been in his favour, explaining that James Cameron will be in turn appropriate the creative control of the project and no longer wishing to work, in the long term, with this producer.
Eternal journey for artistic independence in a sea of franchises, well-kept, up by the heads of project-based character to which the director is only an employee of more – in summary, we would advise to Miller leaving for a time the cinema license for the greener meadows of independence (left to climb a partner with Neil Blomkampthe two friends would, no doubt, two or three anecdotes to share).
