Earlier today we posted a piece about director Tim Miller giving an update on the status of the Deadpool big screen adaptation that made it sound like there was nothing really going on with that at the moment.

And it actually sounds like there may be going on with the flick than Miller let us know.
Deadpool creator Robert Liefeld has chimed in on Twitter stating that the departure of former Fox CEO Tom Rothman is one obstacle down on the path to bringing everyone’s favorite Merc With The Mouth to the big screen. Liefeld says that he’s actually already met with Mark Millar & Tim Miller to discuss the project.

Make this one happen.
