Slash Film got a chance to speak with Kick-Ass 2 writer/director Jeff Wadlow about his upcoming adaptation of Rob Liefeld’s X-Force:

“Oh yeah. I love the current incarnation, UNCANNY X FORCE. I love what Rob did in the nineties. I remember buying X FORCE 1 and what I’ve really loved about the announcement that we are working on the movie is how excited people are by the potential, but also how curious they are like “What’s the line up?” What’s interesting with X MEN, I mean they have an iconic lineup, so you know who is going to be in that movie, but X FORCE it’s like “Who is it going to be?” I love that people are guessing.”

Mark Millar ,who apparently stopped by, also chimed in:

“People are going to be dissecting every name as it gets released, so it’s will be so cool when you have your five.”

Was that his way of saying the roster will be limited to five? So let’s say they do Cable and Deadpool, who gets the last three spots?

It sounds like it will be a mix of the original 90’s team and the more current line-up.
