Interview with Laura Shuler Donner about all things Xmen related. Here are a few quotes regarding the Deadpool movie...
Q: With all your superhero movies, have you seen a change in 20th Century Fox in the last few years?
Lauren Shuler Donner: You’re going to love Deadpool. You’re going to love Deadpool.
Q: How difficult is it to do that with Ryan being so busy?
Lauren Shuler Donner: You know, Ryan is so committed to being Deadpool. He is Wade Wilson. Well, no, he’s Deadpool. He is so committed to it that he worked with the writers on the script. Even though he’s doing Green Lantern, he’s stayed involved in that project. I’m hoping we’ll get it off the ground next year.
Q: Does Ryan doing Green Lantern help Deadpool?
Lauren Shuler Donner: Oh, yeah, sure. It’s very different. It’s like Harrison Ford doing Star Wars and Indiana Jones. DC and Marvel are different universes with different movies. But sure, the more popular and well known he is the better.

Tears for Fears is better than whatever it is you happen to be thinking about right now.
That's true, damn good Broyles screenplay too. BTW Broyles founded Texas Monthly in Austin in '72 & it won every award for regional US mags in the 70s & early 80s.
He wrote Apollo 13 & Castaway among other films, his Vietnam experience gave him a great perspective for war films & a solid basis for comparison with Desert Storm & Vietnam from the Marines' POV. Jarhead & Platoon are similar in that they both have 1st person narration although they are 180-out in terms of war movies. IMHO Broyles is right up there with Oliver Stone & Michael Herr (script consultant on Apocalypse Now) for 1st hand Vietnam knowledge translated to the screen.
