Director Robert Rodriguez certainly has a lot on his plate lately and now it seems that 20th Century Fox could add another project to his slate. The Playlist confirmed a report from Production Weekly that Rodriguez has been given an offer to direct Deadpool.

We reported back in January that Zombieland screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick were hired to write the screenplay for the film, but this is the first we've heard about a director being offered the job. Ryan Reynolds is on board to portray the title character, reprising his role from last year's X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

It was said that the studio has only offered the job to Rodriguez and he hasn't decided if he will take the job or not, although the site said he was considering the gig. We'll be sure to keep you posted with any further details on Robert Rodriguez's involvement with Deadpool as soon as we have more information.
