It looks as if Marvel and 20th Century Fox are eyeing up another X-Men spin off. Last week the Hollywood Reporter followed up their report on the registered domain name X-ForceMovie.com with further details on the new film.
Jeff Waldow, the director and writer of Kick-Ass 2, is now penning a script for the X-Force movie. He is also looking to direct. Lauren Shuler Donner, who produced the X-Men franchise, will spearhead this X-Men film too.
The question now is, what X-Force will we see? Who will join the team? Will Hugh Jackman be in this film as well?
The original “X-Force, created by Rob Liefeld, was a spinoff from Marvel Comics flagshipUncanny X-Men released in 1991. Its first issue set records when it sold 5 million copies (The record was surpassed later that year when X-Men No. 1, drawn by Jim Lee, sold 8 million issues.)”.
