Kick-Ass 2 director Jeff Wadlow is in talks to write and possibly direct a feature based on the X-Force comic book series, which was launched in the 1990s as a militant counterpart to the X-Men franchise. Lauren Shuler Donner is attached to produce.

The original lineup in the X-Force comic books included heroes such as Boom Boom, Cable, Cannonball, Deadpool, Domino, Feral, Shatterstar and Warpath, with later versions including Wolverine, Colossus, Psylocke, and Sunspot. No production schedule was given, since development is still in very early stages at this point.

News of an X-Force movie started earlier today, when a report surfaced that 20th Century Fox had registered the domain name Following that, X-Force comic book creator Rob Liefeld confirmed the development on his Twitter page.

"Yup, was informed in March"

"And by informed, I mean told that an X-Force film was in the planning stages. Much different than shooting a film."

"When they cast an X-Force film then its reason to celebrate. They have a Magneto film in 'development' as well. Proceed with caution."

"Cross your fingers and hope for good things for X-Force. Being ON the radar is much better than not!"
