Rob Liefeld Has Read The X-FORCE Script And He Is Pleased
Around the time Kick-Ass 2 was doing the press rounds we heard a lot from Jeff Wadlow about how work was progressing on his X-Force film. Since then there haven’t been any real updates about the project other than a few odd Tweets from the director and X-Force creator Rob Liefeld. Well today Liefeld has revealed that he’s read Wadlow‘s script and he’s very pleased with things right now.
Liefeld took to his Twitter moments ago to let fans know he got a look at the current draft of the script last week. After having some time to sleep on it, and probably talking with Wadlow a little more about the project, the comic book scribe gave his review. After the first Tweet we’ll just write it out for you to make it easier to read.
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 tam as they learn to cope and trust one another! There are at least 4 sequences that longtime fans of X-Force, Cable, and Deadpool will scream in absolute delight! #wadlownailedit
Perfectly plausible to see the X-Force and Deadpool stand alone film released within 6 months to a year of one another. Great times ahead. I will not divulge the cast of X-Force, gotta keep some stuff under wraps.
To those who suspect I’m an automatic homer, every time I crack open one of these scripts I’m terrified. I speak comic book pretty fluently, I’m aware of what should and should not work on screen. So far, X-Force and Deadpool are in great shape.
Liefeld seems to have moved on from his script review right now, but if he starts talking about the subject again we’ll be sure to update accordingly. It’s interesting that he mentions a Deadpool standalone film could be released withing six months to a year of X-Force. Maybe talks about that long gestating project has started back up since Wadlow is hard at work integrating the character into his team-up movie. Not that it’s a big shocker, but Liefeld seems to be confirming that Cable will indeed be joining his buddy Deadpool in the film. Wadlow said the team would consist of four to six members, so that’s two spots filled. There are rumors that Hugh Jackman‘s Wolverine may be another member, but we’ll put him on the reserve list for now. What do you think about Liefeld‘s mini-review? Are you glad to hear a little more about X-Force?
