Donald Glover and his brother Stephen are still hard at work on their Deadpool animated series for FX, even though Glover has been filming the untitled Han Solo movie in London, according to FX CEO Jon Landgraf.
“They had a staff working in London while Donald was shooting Star Wars,” Landgraf said at a Television Critics Association event (via SlashFilm). “He wrote the second season of Atlanta before London, had a staff in London, he’s coming back to shoot Atlanta season 2 and simultaneously we’ll be animating Deadpool.”
“It’ll be really different from the movies,” Landgraf continued. “It’s animated and they’re live-action, but also it has a different tone and editorial voice as evidenced by Donald and Stephen Glover, who have their own voice and tone. We really wanted to make something that was distinctly different from the movies.”
FX has picked up the Glovers' Deadpool show to series, but no projected release date has been announced.
