SDCC '13: Jeff Wadlow Talks 'X-FORCE', Says He's 20 Pgs Into First Draft
"Kick-Ass 2" director Jeff Wadlow talks X-Force ahead of today's SDCC panel for 20th Century Fox. Says he's a fan of classic X-Force tales and the more current Uncanny X-Force run. Who should be included on the team's roster?
"Kick-Ass 2 director Jeff Wadlow is currently writing the script for an "X-Force" adaptation and confirms that he hopes to direct the film when he finishes the screenplay. Said Wadlow, “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.”
Wadlow refused to reveal who would be included on the team's roster (at times, both Wolverine, Cyclops, Cable and others have led the squad) but did tease, "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.”
Would you want to see the old Rob Liefeld era team, the more recent Wolverine led squad or a mixture of both?
