Fox isn't dropping TJ Miller from the 'Deadpool 2'

Hollywood's ongoing sexual abuse scandal has placed several people under the spotlight, including Deadpool actor T. J. Miller, who has been accused of sexually - and physically - assaulting a woman. Lauren Shuler Donner, who has produced all the X-Men movies to date, has told Rotten Tomatoes that the Ryan Reynolds-starring superhero film is now in its final editing stage and will probably not be removing T.J.

The accusations facing the star relate to two separate incidents alleged to have taken place while Miller attended George Washington University in Washington DC during the early 2000s. Back in December, Miller denied the accusations and said that the woman accusing him was only taking advantage of the current climate of the #MeToo movement to launch false accusations against him. "I don't think so". Its cast includes Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson (Deadpool), Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, T. J. Miller as Weasel, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Stefan Kapičić as Piotr Rasputin (Colossus), Zazie Beetz as Neena Thurman (Domino), Josh Brolin as Nathan Summers (Cable), and Jack Kesy as Black Tom Cassidy. Miller's Deadpool co-star Ryan Reynolds and director David Leitch never weighed in on the issue, and now it appears Miller will remain in the sequel.

As for Miller's potential future in the franchise as a whole, Shuler Donner noted the decision will ultimately be left up to Disney in the wake of their closing deal with 20th Century Fox: "That's a whole studio thing".

Recently, Ridley Scott made headlines by replacing Kevin Spacey as the lead actor in All the Money in the World with Christopher Plummer, and still having the film ready to release in a matter of weeks. In a similar switch, Ed Westwick will be removed from BBC's already-shot Ordeal By Innocence and be replaced by Christian Cooke. The film hits theaters on June 1.
