With Robert Rodriguez recently parting from Deadpool due to scheduling conflicts, the Ryan Reynolds movie based on the Marvel antihero has been seeking a new director, and 24 Frames is reporting that little-known Swedish commercial and video director Adam Berg is in the running.

Deadpool would mark Adam Berg's feature directorial debut. The director gained acclaim with "Carousel," a stylish short made for Philips Electronics that won the prestigious Cannes Lions International Advertising prize. The bank heist short evokes both The Town and The Dark Knight.
