The drama continues for 20th Century Fox and their attempt to bring the Marvel character Deadpool to the big screen. While we’re still awaiting confirmation from star Ryan Reynolds as to when he can fit the project into his busy schedule, the studio is making a move on the directing front. For the past few months Robert Rodriguez has been rumored to be their number one pick to helm the film, but according to a new report that honor might go to Adam Berg instead.
According to 24 Frames, Berg came out of nowhere to become Fox’s top choice for the director’s position. He’s a little known commercial and music video director from Sweden who’s caught the eye of the studio. He doesn’t have any feature film experience but he did helm an action packed short called Carousel, for Philips Electronics that won the prestigious Cannes Lions International Advertising prize.

Not only do the producers want Berg on the film, but Reynolds does to. Therefore, he has the stamp of approval from all the major players involved. It’s only a matter of time before he’s given a final offer.
What do you think of Carousel? Do you think Berg is the right man for the job?
