Deserialization will only be required for XML report definitions (TRDP or TRDX reports). In your scenario, the report is specified by its assembly-qualified name which means that it is designed in Visual Studio report designer. Therefore, you can work directly with report class inside custom report resolver, for example:
MyResolver : IReportResolver
Report reportInstance =
reportInstance.DataSource = dataSource;
