Robert Rodriguez could direct Deadpool

Swimming in a murky (Dead)pool

Although his "Machete" has been generating some hot buzz, Robert Rodriguez has been riding a little bit of a cold streak lately. The "Sin City" auteur didn't set the world afire with his suburban fantasy "Shorts." And "Grindhouse," the exploitation experiment on which he collaborated with Quentin Tarantino (Rodriguez directed the "Planet Terror" half of the bill), fared worse.

But Rodriguez's stock remains high at Fox, which is distributing "Machete," as well as the Rodriguez-produced "Predators." High enough, in fact, that the studio is interested in hearing what Rodriguez would do with a big new property, its comic book movie "Deadpool," in which Ryan Reynolds plays the mouthy Marvel mercenary.

Some development-board rumors over the weekend that had Rodriguez "offered" the job led to numerous Web outlets running with the story Monday -- using euphemisms such as "approached" and the more concrete "offered" -- to describe Rodriguez's involvement with the Rob Liefeld adaptation. Sources say the director has indeed been sent the script (penned by the writers of "Zombieland") but has not been extended an offer.

Indeed, it's hard to imagine why Fox would put pen to paper on a deal this far ahead of the release of "Machete": Rodriguez has some options but he's not that hugely in demand.

Would the filmmaker make a good "Deadpoool" movie? Certainly the fan sites that have breathlessly been reporting the Rodriguez news are intrigued. And any time a quirky auteur with an accomplished movie under his belt is given both a dark character and mula to play with, it's worth paying attention.

But there are also reasons to pause at all this. As a character, the dark superhero is becoming a little less interesting by the movie; a dark superhero movie increasingly turns on what you do with that character as opposed to the novelty of the premise itself. And Rodriguez's best film had the benefit of drawing off far richer source material in "Sin City."

Don't get us wrong. Rodriguez would be an interesting choice. But there are other directors who show as much vision and versatility. Producers know this, and the Rodriguez-inclined Fox probably knows this. And Rodriguez himself may, judging by some of what he's taken on lately, move away from the comic book adaptations. We'll believe a Rodriguez "Deadpool" -- and a strong Rodriguez "Deadpool" -- when it's in front of us on the screen.

Maybe one day Ryan and Chris will face off in yet another comic book adaptation. We can only hope.

I read an interview a while ago where Ryan expressed tremendous interest in doing the movie "the right way." He spoke of breaking the fourth wall and all of that. Who knows.... but yeah, I'm pretty skeptical.

IMO, they have the feasible writers, lead actor, and depending on the director Deadpool could be a cornerstone franchise like Iron Man if it is done correctly.

Everyone is bracing for the Twilight frenzy to appease females from 12 to 16 demographic.

Deadpool is such a complex and quirky character though. That comic was very different than most of the other run of the mill books. At one point in the comic, Deadpool actually knew that he was a comic book character, and started talking to the reader that way. They'll have to change him a lot for it to fit Hollywood criteria...

It'd be hard for Deadpool to become a cornerstone franchise because there are a lot of moviegoers who are going to have no clue who Deadpool is. It was easy with Ironman and Batman because they're easily recognizable by a majority of the general public. Deadpool....not so much.

Actually Ironman was considered B or 2nd tier by alot of people before the movie came out.

First of all so F'n psyched for Predators. Grew up on the Predator and Alien franchises... well not the first alien but ya know. Watched all the movies, love the essence of the Predator, and this film just sounds like it will kick ass. Of course the actors won't have amazing lines, of course its going to be a gorefest that won't be top grosser, and of course it's not going to recieve much praise from critics but I dont give a damn. If this movie is made for the fan,which I believe it to be, then it will be better than Predator 2, AVP or AVPR.

Also if you look at the pics Rottentomatoes.com has for predators, those new predators look awe inspringly sick.
