It's official! John Wick director David Leitch has signed on to direct Deadpool 2 over at Fox.
The deal comes together less than a month after Tim Miller exited the superhero sequel following creative differences with leading man Ryan Reynolds.
Fox had announced at CinemaCon in April that Reynolds would be back for the sequel, as well as Miller. Deadpool gave Fox its biggest hit of 2016 after opening on Valentine’s Day. It would end up grossing an impressive $782-million worldwide, and becoming the highest-grossing R-rated film in history.
Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are back handling script duties on the sequel.
Fox has yet to announce an official release date for Deadpool 2, but it is said that a third film is currently being planned at the studio - which is looking to revamp their X-Men franchise.
