Jeff Wadlow-X-Force

Kick-Ass 2 director Jeff Wadlow finds it impossible to take time off because he has now been hired by Fox to write X-Men spinoff movie X-Force, with an eye to potentially direct as well.

X-Force is a spinoff comic that was launched in the 1990s as a militant counterpart to the X-Men franchise. The book served as a reboot of sorts for ‘New Mutants’ that introduced such popular contemporary characters as Cable, Deadpool, and Domino.

Fox, who recently registered a domain name, is expected to officially announce X-Force and other X-Men related projects at San Diego Comic-Con next week.

X-Men franchise producer Lauren Schuler Donner is also on board X-Force.

It sounds like X-Force that has been rebooted a couple of times in the past decade could be the beginning of a big X-Men cinematic universe at Fox.

Wadlow who recently wrote two episodes of A&E’s hit show Bates Motel is currently writing an adaptation of Bloodshot, based on the Valiant comic that is set up at Sony.
