It's been a rough week for Deadpool 2, 20th Century Fox's highly-anticipated superhero sequel, with original Deadpool director Tim Miller parting ways with the project. While there has been some dispute as to why the filmmaker left, the studio still needs to find a replacement, although it isn't clear who that may be yet. While we wait for a new director to be hired, new details have surfaced about Deadpool 2's working title.
ComicBook.com reports that, when Deadpool 2 actually goes into production, it will be using the secret working title "Love Machine." The site speculates that this could very well be an inside joke referring to the new character Cable, who was confirmed to be part of the sequel during the Deadpool post-credits sequence. Ironically, it may have been this character that lead Tim Miller to bail on the project in the first place.

The superhero movie world was dealt a surprising blow this weekend, when it was revealed that original Deadpool director Tim Miller was parting ways with the upcoming sequel Deadpool 2 over creative differences with star Ryan Reynolds. A subsequent report claimed that both the director and star clashed over the casting of Cable, who was announced as part of the sequel during Deadpool's post-credit sequence. Today a new report has surfaced that claims the real reason Tim Miller left didn't involve the sequel's casting, but rather the budget.
The Wrap reports that star/producer Ryan Reynolds and writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, envisioned a "scrappy," raunchy, inexpensive movie," along the lines of the original Deadpool. The original R-rated movie became a box office sensation, earning $782.6 million worldwide from a $58 million budget. Tim Miller, on the other hand, reportedly wanted a more "stylish take" that would compete with big-budget tentpoles, »
No one said the name “Donald Trump” at the annual Through Her Lens: The Tribeca Chanel Women’s Filmmaker Program kickoff luncheon, held this afternoon at New York City’s Locanda Verde restaurant. But they didn’t need to. As Jane Rosenthal, the Executive Chair of Tribeca Enterprises (and co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival) greeted the crowd with an enthusiastic cry for her fellow “nasty ladies!” to welcome each other, it was clear that the group, composed of leading female actresses, directors, writers, producers, casting directors and costume designers, was already on the same page.
Now in its second year, the Through Her Lens program is a three-day workshop that “aims to balance industry support, artistic development and funding for new and emerging U.S.-based female writers and directors of short-form narrative films.” This year’s group consists of five filmmakers, who will each pitch their project to »

“Hello all you nasty women,” Tribeca Productions co-founder Jane Rosenthal exclaimed at the Tribeca Chanel Women’s Filmmaker Program luncheon, which took place at Locanda Verde in New York City on Tuesday.
The nearly all-female crowd, which included Katie Holmes, Mamie Gummer, Emily Mortimer, Sienna Miller and Zosia Mamet, roared their approval to the Hillary Clinton reference. And with election night quickly approaching, the event’s speeches were sprinkled with political overtones. Rosenthal continued: “In two weeks today I hope we break through the biggest glass ceiling.”
Attendee Mary Lambert, who coincidentally directed the now infamous “Nasty” video by Janet Jackson, was thrilled with what’s happened to “nasty woman” since Donald Trump uttered the phrase at the third debate. “It was so much fun to see it appropriated in that way and to take a negative and turn it into a positive and make fun of the person who said it, »

The good news: James Gray‘s highly-anticipated, long-gestating The Lost City of Z is well worth the wait. The bad news: if you didn’t get a chance to see it at New York Film Festival, you’ll have to wait half-a-year. To help ease some of delay, today we have the 30-minute press conference following the first press screening. The always affable Gray opens up about not wanting it to be a biopic, but more of a “comment on an age” alongside cast members Sienna Miller, Robert Pattinson, Tom Holland, and Angus Macfadyen. (Papillon remake commitments kept star Charlie Hunnam from appearing.) Also discussed is the use of 35mm, the horrors of shooting in the jungle, and much, much more.
We said in our review, “The film otherwise bears an echo-heavy sound design reminiscent of and compliant with industrial England’s wide, drafty rooms, a space where the cuts »

Yesterday, we reported the surprising news that director Tim Miller has left the highly-anticipated sequel Deadpool 2. The filmmaker was expected to return along with most of the stars from this year's blockbuster Deadpool, but now 20th Century Fox is looking for a new director. While this of the beloved Marvel comic book is not part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, one of its directors, James Gunn, expressed his dismay that Tim Miller was leaving. Here's what the filmmaker had to say below.
James Gunn made this statement on Twitter just after the news first broke. Another report that broke after the initial news revealed that Tim Miller was leaving the superhero sequel due to creative differences with star Ryan Reynolds over the casting of the iconic character Cable. »
Earlier today we learned that Deadpool 2 has taken a huge leap back, with director Tim Miller exiting the project duo to creative differences with star and producer Ryan Reynolds. At the time of the initial report, it wasn't clear what these problems were. But it has now been revealed that the filmmaker and his leading man couldn't see eye-to-eye on the style nor the casting of this impending superhero sequel.
The split is being called amicable by all involved. And apparently Tim Miller left while still on good terms with 20th Century Fox, who have reportedly already set him up with his own new trilogy called Influx, based on the book by Daniel Suarez. But when it comes to Miller and Ryan Reynolds, it is now being said that that there has been trouble in paradise for awhile. The pair's relationship is now being called 'contentious' and it's said »

Although we’re yet to get any kind of official confirmation that Domino will appear in Deadpool 2, Collider is reporting that casting is underway for the role, with ten actresses said to have tested with director Tim Miller and the film’s producers.
According to the site, the actresses under consideration include Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (10 Cloverfield Lane), Sienna Miller (American Sniper), Sofia Boutella (Star Trek Beyond), Stephanie Sigman (Spectre), Sylvia Hoeks (Overspel), Mackenzie Davis (Halt and Catch Fire), Ruby Rose (Orange Is the New Black), Eve Hewson (The Knick), and Kelly Rohrbach (Baywatch).
More of a longlist than a shortlist, really…
if you’re unfamiliar with the character of Domino, the character is the result of a government programme designed to genetically engineer the perfect weapon. The only subject to survive, Domino – who possesses the powers of telekinetic probability manipulation – would go on to become a mercenary, »

H&M doesn’t mess around when it comes to putting on a fashion show. Last year, the Backstreet Boys performed at the Balmain x H&M runway extravaganza and we all turned into 12-year-old fangirls.Â And Wednesday night’s launch of the new Kenzo x H&M collection was just as good, with models dancing down the runway, a surprise performance by Ice Cube and of course a star-studded guest list including Lupita Nyong’o, Sienna Miller, Chance The Rapper, Elizabeth Olsen, Joe Jonas, Iman and more.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead received some bad news earlier this week when CBS canceled BrainDead, but she’s got quite the rebound in play—Collider reports that Winstead is on the shortlist to play Domino in Deadpool 2. But the 10 Cloverfield Lane actress has some stiff competition—she’s vying for the role alongside Lizzy Caplan, Sienna Miller, Mackenzie Davis, Sofia Boutella, and Ruby Rose, to name a few. Okay, we’ll list the rest: Eve Hewson (The Knick), Spectre’s Stephanie Sigman, Sylvia Hoeks (Dutch of the Dutch series Overspel), and Kelly Rohrbach, the latter of which is taking over for Pamela Anderson in the new Baywatch movie.
All of these actresses have tested for the role or will do so, but there’s currently no word on when production on the sequel will begin. But it makes sense to add Domino to the mix, what with Cable joining ...

What we know about Deadpool 2 thus far: Ryan Reynolds will be back in the leading role. That much was always a given. Likewise, director Tim Miller is back too, along with writers and producers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. The same core team, basically, who fought to bring Deadpool back to the big screen for the best part of a decade. The sequel is coming a lot quicker.
Deadpool 2 will be adding the character of Domino to the mix. She’s a mutant with the power of random telekinetic acts, and in the comics, she’s quite keen on Cable too. Cable has already been revealed to be a character in the new film.
The question, then: who is going to be taking on the role of Domino? »

Earlier today, six actresses that are vying for the role of Cable's right-hand woman, Domino, in Tim Miller's Deadpool sequel were revealed, and now Collider has added four more names to the shortlist. In addition to Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Lizzy Caplan, Sienna Miller, Sofia Boutella, Stephanie Sigman, and Sylvia Hoeks, it seems Ruby Rose (Orange is the New Black, John Wick 2), Mackenzie Davis (Halt and Catch Fire), Eve Hewson (The Knick), and Kelly Rohrbach (Baywatch) are also in contention. That's a heck of a lot of talent competing for one part, and there will probably be more names revealed before someone is chosen - but out of these 10, who would be your pick to play Domino in Deadpool 2? »
Deadpool remains not only one of the biggest financially successful movies of 2016, but also one of the most beloved. So, all eyes are on Deadpool 2, which has still yet to secure a release date, but it seems as though the mutant Domino will be along for the ride. Now we have a new shortlist of actresses who Fox is apparently looking at to play the lady mercenary alongside Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson.
Collider has revealed a list of actresses who have either screen tested for the role of Domino in Deadpool 2 or who Fox intends to test. The list includes Lizzy Caplan from Masters of Sex, Mary Elizabeth Winstead from 10 Cloverfield Lane, Sienna Miller from American Sniper, Sofia Boutella from Star Trek Beyond, Stephanie Sigman from Spectre, and the slightly lesser known Sylvia Hoeks. That is not to say that these are the only actresses who are being looked at, »
Coming off of the original Deadpool film, it was clear there was a pretty big role to fill for the sequel: Cable. Deadpool even mentioned the guy in the post-credits scene of his film. But apart from Cable, there was one big comic book character that fans knew was also on the horizon: Domino. This is someone who has a history with both Cable and Deadpool in a big way.
For those unfamiliar, Domino is yet another mutant in the Marvel universe probably most physically notable for her pale skin and voluptuous figure (I know, right? Totally uncommon in superhero comics). Like Deadpool, she also makes her living as a badass mercenary. Last August there were rumors that actress Mackenzie Davis was up for the role, but nothing ever really came of that.
Now, Collider is reporting that there is a shortlist of actresses up for the role, and on »

Update: Four more actresses have been revealed as contenders for Domino. They are Kelly Rohrbach, Eve Hewson, Ruby Rose, and Mackenzie Davis. Previously… Filmmakers on the “Deadpool” sequel have winnowed the list of actresses being considered for its lead female role down to six actresses, TheWrap has learned. Lizzy Caplan (“Masters of Sex”), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (“10 Cloverfield Lane”), Sienna Miller (“American Sniper”), Sofia Boutella (“Star Trek Beyond”), Stephanie Sigman (“Spectre”) and Sylvia Hoeks (“Blade Runner 2049”) are currently testing for the role of Domino in “Deadpool 2.” Like Deadpool, Neena Thurman, a.k.a. Domino, is a former mercenary turned member of the X-Men. »

While we know Cable will be joining Deadpool in his much anticipated sequel, it now looks like we are definitely getting Domino as well. As a shortlist has now been released.
[Update: Collider.Com has once again got the scoop and the originally reported list of six has now grown to ten! Ten talented actresses all vying for the role of Domino in the upocoming Deadpool 2. Along witht he original list, we have now learned that Mackenzie Davis (Halt and Catch Fire), Ruby Rose (Orange Is the New Black), Kelly Rohrbach (Baywatch), and Eve Hewson (The Knick). Original story follows below.]
We were all excited after 11 years of waiting for Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool to finale be realized properly on the big screen. And it is safe to say we were not let down by the film. Now the much anticipated sequel is quietly making its way toward production we still don't know when exactly it will hit theaters, or who will be playing Deadpools' time traveling companion Cable. But a source close to the production has let Collider.Com in on an exclusive. And that is that we have a short list of actresses for the role of Domino.
Much like Deadpool, Domino is a mutant mercenary who is an expert marks-woman with enhanced reflexes, and sub conscience telekinetic probability manipulation. »

So much of the casting rumors swirling around Deadpool 2 have focused on Cable that few have stopped to ask the question, what about Domino?
One actress that effectively ruled herself out of the equation during the summer months was Mackenzie Davis (Halt And Catch Fire), and since then, casting tidbits have been few and far between. Bringing an end to that admittedly brief radio silence today is Collider.
Citing a trusted source close to 20th Century Fox, the outlet has unearthed a report claiming that the current persons of interest include Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (10 Cloverfield Lane), Sienna Miller (American Sniper), Sofia Boutella (Star Trek Beyond), Stephanie Sigman (Spectre), and Sylvia Hoeks (Overspel).
Domino, a skilled mercenary and mutant much like the Merc With a Mouth, is one of the big new additions going into Deadpool 2. Her arc neatly dovetails with that of Cable’s, »
