Comic-Con: Jeff Wadlow 20 Pages Into X-Force Draft: Can be many different things

We get a pretty cool update on a film that was only recently announced with the X-Force movie.

It was previously said that Kick-Ass 2 director Jeff Wadlow was on board X-Force writing with an eye to direct.

That news is now confirmed at Comic-Con as Wadlow says he actually has written 20 pages of the X-Force movie script.

He goes on to say more of the X-Force movie script would have been completed if not for promoting Kick-Ass 2.

Fans have also been wondering which version of X-Force they will see on the big screen: the original Rob Liefeld creation or the Rick Remender "Uncanny" version?

If the latter is used it's possible Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds could be featured as Wolverine and Deadpool are a part of Uncanny X-Force.

Ladlow doesn't exactly answer the question, but says X-Force could be many different things, so it's quite possible it could be something new.

Here is what Jeff Ladlow had to say about the X-Force movie (via CinemaBlend):

I’m pretty deep into it,” Wadlow told me during an exclusive interview. “I have the whole story completely worked out. I’m about 20 pages into my draft. If I wasn’t promoting Kick-Ass, I would probably have a draft [already], but Kick-Ass is going to slow me down just a little.

Here’s 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 that’s what got the studio excited. I think the fans will be excited, too.

We could hear more about the X-Force movie at Comic-Con later today.
