‘Kick-Ass 2′ filmmaker tackling Fox’s ‘X-Force’


(From Hollywood Reporter) Jeff Wadlow, who is readying for the Aug. 16 release of Kick-Ass 2, has been tapped to write an adaptation of X-Force, an X-Men spinoff being developed by 20th Century Fox.

The news comes on the heels of various blogs reporting Friday that the studio registered a few months ago.

Longtime X-Men franchise producer Lauren Shuler Donner is producing X-Force.

Wadlow is writing with an eye to direct.

X-Force, created by Rob Liefeld, was a spinoff from Marvel Comics flagship Uncanny 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.)

The original lineup of the team comprised several characters from the first Uncanny X-Men spinoff, The New Mutants, teens who had matured into young adults. Also in the lineup was Cable, a militant leader from the future who is related to X-Men heroes Cyclops and Jean Grey. His body is enhanced by robotic parts, and he has telekinetic powers as well.

X-Force has been rebooted a couple of times in the past decade, and there are now two comics in the marketplace: Uncanny X-Force and Cable and X-Force.
