The sequel to this year’s pleasant surprise hit Deadpool is having a little bit of growing pains recently with the departure of Deadpool director Tim Miller. You can check our coverage here, and here, and here, and here, and here. However, the show must go on! The upcoming Fox film doesn’t yet have a new director, but it does in fact, have a working title.
The working title for the upcoming film is “Love Machine.” This tongue-in-cheek reference is probably for Cable, who we already know will be in the upcoming film. The cybernetic, time traveling mutant is set to team up with Wade Wilson in the upcoming sequel. Cable’s sidekick and sometimes squeeze, Domino is also set to appear in the sequel.
Now that “Love Machine” is in preproduction, they need to move quickly in securing a new director as well as casting several key characters (Domino and Cable) as the film has a January 12, 2018 expected release date.
