Brad Pitt No Longer In the Running to Play Cable in Deadpool 2

I’m 100% convinced that the news Brad Pitt is no longer in the running to play cable has to do with the leaked concept art that was out the other week.  I mean I know I shouldn’t think that and it should have no bearing whatsoever on whether or not Pitt would be in this thing, but I remember the emails I got from Fox after I posted the photos.  And I can imagine a ton of other sites got emails as well.    They were complete freaking out that the art leaked.

Director David Leitch told Comicbook that while Pitt was in the running previously, they could not work out a deal. Fox and the creative team involved have now moved on from the idea of Pitt and are looking to cast someone else in the role. Read Leitch’s full quote below:

“We had a great meeting with Brad, he was incredibly interested in the property. Things didn’t work out schedule-wise. He’s a fan, and we love him, and I think he would’ve made an amazing Cable.”

Eh, this quote seems legit but I’m still wondering about that concept art thing. Someone make an inquiry please.  As far as who’s in the lead now?  The top contender according to the most recent report is Michael Shannon. Even though he too previously passed on the role, it looks as though there is a real possibility he could land the role thanks to some shifting in his schedule.   Also we’re told not to rule out David Harbour.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.  I think Michael Shannon would make a great Cable.  Let’s hope he lands the role.
