Fox is planning an X-Force movie

UPDATE: Kick-Ass 2's Jeff Wadlow is writing the script

 
Rumours abound that Fox might be about to expand its X-Men movie universe by giving the green light to a new project based upon the X-Force comic series.
 
According to fan site X-MenFilms.com, the studio registered the domain name X-forceMovie.com some months ago, suggesting that a movie adaptation could be in the pipeline.
 
Launched in the early ‘90s, the X-Force series was responsible for introducing well-loved characters like Cable and Warpath as part of a new team of mutant heroes.
 
While this is obviously just a rumour at this stage, it’s worth remembering that Fox registered a domain name for Days Of Future Past long before the film was announced, and a new mutant team might be a good way to reboot the franchise.

Fox have also got a 90-minute panel coming up at Comic-Con, with no official details having been released as to what will be featured. Could there be a big announcement in the offing? We’ll have to wait and see…
 
UPDATE:The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog is reporting that Kick-Ass 2 writer-director Jeff Wadlow has been tapped to write the X-Force script for Fox, with a view to directing. X-Men regular Lauren Shuler Donner will produce. Now we're even more hopefully for a Comic-Con announcement, and we'll be anticipating Kick-Ass 2 even more keenly...

      I'm more surprised that they haven't rap...mined the X-Universe before.

      Never been much of a fan of X-Force. But I'd *love* to see an X-Factor film series.

      Too many idiots will think it's a film version of the crud they watch every Saturday night ... "Why aren't they singing cover versions badly out-of-tune?" ... "I always thought Leona Lewis was a mutant" etc etc

      This would be great! Fox can easily expand the X-Men universe with this new spin-off, another First Class movie set in the 80's and a modern time sequel with original cast. Three different movies to develop different characters and actors. Seems like a perfect plan to us. Lets hope they announce something at Comic Con, to start creating hype

      Would be an interesting movie. I'm a massive fan of X Force, having collected the series since issue #1 and followed many of the characters from their time in the 90's era New Mutants. If it happens I look forward to the writers and director finding a way to portray the most militant of the X teams as still being the good guys despite Cable having a far more... proactive stance than Xavier.

      I don't know who that woman is, but she looks like she should be played by Thora Birch..

      @Hadouken76 That's Domino, I can see Thora Birch playing her. Would love to see who they'd cast as Cable.

      Great news. Cable is a fantastic character. Wonder if this could pave the way for an Avengers VS X-Men film (provided the studios could sort something out). The comics were a little disappointing but it would be good fun to watch on the big screen.
