Rob Liefeld praises ‘X-Force’ script. Are Cable & Deadpool in?


X-FORCE comic co-creator Rob Liefeld took to his Twitter to rave about Jeff Wadlow’s screenplay for the popular mutant team, which is being developed for the big screen at 20th Century Fox. Saying the film is “in good shape,” Liefeld went on to tweet that “every film needs a proper script b4 they can cast&shoot. 1st mission accomplished for X-Force-When the casting begins we can scream together.”

Wadlow is hoping to film the project, which follows an eclectic team of bad-a$$ mutants. The original incarnation of X-Force featured characters who crossed over from the now-defunct New Mutants team, a property that longtime producer Lauren Shuler Donner has been wanting to adapt for ages.

Popular X-Men characters Cable and Deadpool (played by Ryan Reynolds in “Origins”) are looking to have potential roles in the film, with the ‘ol “merc with a mouth” hopefully spinning off into his own film, which has been in development hell for a while.

Which other characters would you like to see featured?
