Comic book artist and creator Rob Liefeld announced that the script for 20th Century Fox’s adaptation of Marvel’s X-Force comic book is in the can. Liefeld, who created the characters and superhero teams such as Deadpool, Cable, X-Force, Supreme, Bloodstrike, Prophet and Glory, sang nothing but praise for “X-Force” writer/director Jeff Wadlow. Barely containing himself, Liefeld took to his Twitter account to share the good news!
Could this mean a standalone Deadpool film is near to its long waited start?
X-Force is a fictional Marvel Comics superhero team, one of several spin-offs of the popular X-Men franchise, and the eponymous subject of the X-Force comic book series. Conceived by writer/illustrator Rob Liefeld, the team was formed in New Mutants, vol. 1 #100 (April 1991) and soon afterwards was featured in its own series.
Here is the storyline for the action/adventure/fantasy film.
A time-traveler (Cable) assembles a team of mutants in order to prevent the wrecked future he came from.
“X-Force” comes to theaters sometime in 2016. Jeff Wadlow wrote the screenplay, based on characters created by Rob Liefeld. Jeff Wadlow directs.
