While its been rumored for a very long time and pretty much a sure thing. Thanks to Deadline we finally have confirmation that 20th Century Fox is moving forward with an X-Force movie starring of course, Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin!
According to Deadline:
Fox has set Drew Goddard to write and direct X-Force, the X-Men spinoff film that revolves around Deadpool and Cable leading a Black Ops force of down and dirty mutant warriors who are far more ruthless than their X-Men counterparts.
Simon Kinberg, Ryan Reynolds and Lauren Shuler Donner are producing. Goddard is next directing for Fox's Bad Times at the El Royale with Chris Hemsworth and Jeff Bridges, but he has already cracked the script and will roll right into X-Force when he is finished.
While not confirmed, we would almost guarantee the X-Force film to be R-rated considering the fact that Deadpool 1 & 2 are both extremely R-rated.
We'll be sure to update you guys with more information on this highly anticipated project as it becomes available.
