<i>Deadpool</i> Could Go To Unknown Swedish Commercial Director

Robert Rodriguez’s off-and-on relationship with Deadpool apparently is off again, clearing a path for a new, and relatively unknown, contender to direct the Fox adaptation.

The Los Angeles Times reports that Adam Berg, a little-known Swedish commercial and video director, has emerged as a leading candidate for the movie, which stars Ryan Reynolds as Marvel’s Merc with a Mouth.

The 38-year-old Berg has directed numerous music videos for European bands like Idlewild, The Cardigans and Kent — his brother Joakim his lead singer of the the Swedish group — but garnered wider attention last year with his stylish short film for Philips Electronics. Winner of the prestigious Grand Prix at the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival, “Carousel” is a 139-second continuous tracking shot of a frozen moment after a bank heist gone wrong. The camera pans through scattered bills, muzzle flashes and explosions, past police exchanging fire with masked robbers who have fled into a hospital, eventually looping back around to the beginning of the scene. You can watch the short, and a behind-the-scenes video, below.

According to the LA Times, Berg’s work is admired by Deadpool‘s producers as well as by Reynolds, giving the director a leg up on the competition.
