X-Force and Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld has been working on a Cable movie for a while now….
The X-Force movie has been in development with Kick-Ass 2’s Jeff Wadlow working on the screenplay but it’s been pretty quiet on all fronts recently. Until now, that is.
At Wizard World Comic Con in Cleveland, Liefeld has teased that Cable will be happening: “Let me tell you right now that you’re gonna see Cable in the next couple of years. He’s in the works. I may or may not have glanced at some concept art with different actors as Cable and I was like, ‘Hey, that guy looks pretty good!’ But I won’t say who those [actors] are because I’ll get in trouble.
“I’ve been up to Fox… and they have an X-Force script. I read the X-Force script and it made me come out of my chair with excitement.”
It seems safe to assume that a Cable standalone movie will lead into an X-Force movie at some stage in the future from this news, no?
Liefeld did hint that it still could be a while away, since it took six years for Deadpool to happen, but he added that FOX are very keen to expand the X-Men movie universe as soon as possible…
