Jeff Wadlow, who is readying for the August 16 release of Kick-Ass 2, has been tapped to write an adaptation of X-Force, an X-Men spin-off being developed by 20th Century Fox.

The news comes on the heels of various blogs reporting today that the studio registered X-ForceMovie.com a few months ago.

Longtime X-Men franchise producer Lauren Shuller Donner is producing X-Force.
Wadlow is now writing the script with an eye to direct.

X-Force was an early 1990s spin-off from Marvel Comics’ flagship Uncanny X-Men comics created by Rob Liefeld and its first issue set sales records when it sold five million copies. (The record was only surpassed when X-Men #1, drawn by Jim Lee, sold eight million issues.)

The original line-up of the team was made up of several characters from the first Uncanny X-Men spin-off, The New Mutants, teens who had matured into young adults. But also among the line up was Cable, a militant leader from the future who is related to X-Men heroes Cyclops and Jean Grey. His body is enhanced by robotic parts and he has some telekinetic powers as well.

Wadlow wrote and directed Kick-Ass 2, the sequel to the violent and funny 2010 hit based on the comic books by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. He recently wrote two episodes of A&E’s hit show, Bates Motel.

Wadlow is also writing an adaptation of Bloodshot, based on the Valiant comic and set up Columbia.

He is repped by WME and Hirsch Wallerstein.
