Original X-Force creator Rob Liefeld has taken to his Twitter account to praise Jeff Wadlow’s most recent draft of a screenplay for a forthcoming big screen adaptation of the comic team.
He said that that the “1st mission accomplished for X-Force” was the script and when casting begins “we can scream together”
Hinting that the film will maintain a balanced roster from throughout the book’s long and varied history, he added: “X-Force cast/film will please/appeal to fans of all eras. Wadlow carefully, cleverly navigates the legacy.”
X-Force was first launched in the early ’90s by Liefeld and Fabian Nicieza. The original team consisted of many fan favorite characters including Cable, Cannonball, Domino, Warpath, and Deadpool, but later incarnations have featured Wolverine, Psylocke, Sunspot, and Colossus.
