Comic-Con: Jeff Wadlow Updates on X-Force Script

The announcement came last week that Kick-Ass 2 writer/director Jeff Wadlow would be bringing Marvel's X-Force to life on the big screen. But how far is he into the film's script?

Im pretty deep into it, Wadlow told Cinema Blend. I have the whole story completely worked out. Im about 20 pages into my draft. If I wasnt promoting Kick-Ass, I would probably have a draft [already], but Kick-Ass is going to slow me down just a little.

When asked about the importance of the team's leader, Cable, Wadlow responded: "Heres the thing, I love the current run of Uncanny X-Force. I love the classic run. Part of my take was addressing this idea that X-Force can be many different things, and thats what got the studio excited. I think the fans will be excited, too.

Described as the "militant" and "more aggresive" counter part to the X-Men, X-Force was first launched in the early '90s by Liefeld and Fabian Nicieza. The original team consisted of many fan favorite characters including Cable, Cannonball, Domino, Warpath, and Deadpool, but later incarnations have featured Wolverine, Psylocke, Sunspot, and Colossus.

As to how X-Force will tie into 20th Century Fox's upcoming The Wolverine and X-Men: Days of Future Past remains to be seen, expect some major announcements today at Comic-Con International San Diego. Check back here for live updates from 20th Century Fox's Hall H panel later today!
