We recently told you that Kick-Ass 2 writer and director Jeff Wadlow is working on the script for an X-Force movie at Fox. The last we heard he was deep into it and had the story completely worked out. In a recent interview with Screen Rant, Wadlow gives an update on his plans for the film saying,
"What ‘X-Force’ is – the way I talk about ‘X-Force’ is… ‘X-Men’ is about mutants, and not all the mutants get into the mansion. So I’m curious to tell a story about the mutants who don’t make it into the mansion."
He goes on to talk about the characters that he's obviously looking to include in the movie.
"Look, I’m a huge Deadpool fan, who doesn’t love Wolverine – but obviously Cable is an iconic character we haven’t seen onscreen yet. I love Psylocke, Domino is an amazing character – it’s a long list of characters that have appeared in ‘X-Force’ – Colossus is in the current lineup… There’s a lot of really exciting characters that you can use in ‘X-Force’ that have been in other movies, that haven’t shown up, or maybe there’s ways to re-imagine them, even though they might’ve shown up in other films."
I hope this movie actually ends up going into development. I'd love to see what Wadlow has envisioned for it.
