Director Joe Carnahan Working On The 'X-Force' Script; Get The Details!

Coming to us exclusively from a report by our good friends over at Collider, it now appears that the awesomely cool writer and director Joe Carnahan is helping 20th Century Fox set up the future of their X-Men Cinematic Universe.

Following the overwhelming success of last year's R-rated Deadpool and next week's incredibly cinematic epic R-rated western, Logan. 20th Century Fox has started to realize that they've got something special on their hands and are now intending to corner the R-rated superhero market.

In their huge report, Collider has revealed that Narc and Smokin' Aces director Joe Carnahan is not only busy with The Raid remake and the new Bad Boys sequel, but is now been hired by Fox to write the script for the X-Force movie!

Here's what Collider revealed, We’ve learned that Carnahan is currently writing the script for 20th Century Fox’s X-Force movie which is based on the comic by Rob Liefeld. If you’re unfamiliar with X-Force, the Marvel comic series follows a team of mutants, a bit more militaristic and rougher around the edges than the X-Men, who take on the less savory wet works and black ops jobs. Like the X-Men, X-Force has featured a revolving team of heroes over the decades, but two of the most prominent figures are Cable and Domino, both of whom are set to appear first in Deadpool 2.

As of now, Carnahan is only writing the script for X-Force and is not currently attached to direct, but should Fox be a fan of the script (and if one of his clones has time in their schedule), he certainly has the experience to back a directorial gig.

Jamie Chung Cast As Beloved Mutant In Bryan Singer's 'X-Men' TV Series

With the recent announcement that director Bryan Singer will be directing Matt Nix's upcoming X-Men TV series' pilot episode. The profile on this upcoming series has risen significantly over the past few weeks and now we've gotten one of the biggest casting news for the series yet. Former reality show star and long time Hollywood actress who's never quite broken out as a major star, actress Jamie Chung has joined the cast as the fan-favorite teleporting mutant, Blink.

The character was last scene in Singer's own 2014 X-Men film, X-Men: Days of Futures Past, but was portrayed by Asian star, Fan Bingbing in the "future" segments of the film. Chung would will now most likely be playing a young version of Blink this time around.

As Variety reports, Chung is set to bring Clarice Fong (Clarice Ferguson in the comics), a.k.a. Blink, to the small screen in the untitled live-action X-Men TV pilot in a take on the character described as “sarcastic, lively and a bit of a tomboy [with a] naturally strong exuberance [that] has taken a hit after a sudden and traumatic upheaval of her life. As she adjusts to the new people and places that are suddenly “home,” she is slowly becoming herself again.” The 20th Century Fox TV and Marvel Television series “will focus on two ordinary parents who discover their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.”
