Rob Liefeld Sings Nothing But Praise for the X-FORCE Screenplay

X Force

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!

I was fortunate enough to read the current draft of the X-Force film last week, and I can tell you, it was beyond impressive!

The best part of the film is the camaraderie between the team as they learn to cope and trust one another!

There are at least 4 sequences that long time fans of X-Force, Cable and Deadpool will scream in absolute delight!

Perfectly plausible to see the X-Force and Deadool stand alone film released within 6 months to a year of one another. Great times ahead.

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.
