The (X)Force is Strong with Jeff Wadlow
Jeff Wadlow (Kick-Ass 2), will be scripting a X-Force movie for 20th Century Fox. And he may step into the director’s chair for this X-Men spin-off as well. This follows up the earlier reports that the studio has registered the domain X-ForceMovie.com. Longtime X-Men franchise producer Lauren Shuler Donner is producing X-Force.
Rumors have been going around that Fox plans to announce an expanded X-Men movie universe during the studio’s Comic-Con panel on Saturday, July 20th 4:15 – 5:45pm.
Originally, the X-Force comic book series was a continuation of the X-Men spin-off New Mutants comic. Released in 1991 with artist Rob Liefeld at the helm, X-Force #1 was released poly-bagged with variant character cards in different bags, and sold 5 million copies. The X-Force comic book series has been retooled and rebooted into different incarnations over the last several years.
Wadlow wrote and directed Kick-Ass 2, recently wrote two episodes of A&E’s Bates Motel, and is also writing an adaptation of the Valiant comic Bloodshot for Sony.
