Channing Tatum Talks Gambit’s Movie Costume and Origins

6 June 2014 4:50 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

With X-Men: Days of Future Past entering its third weekend in theaters worldwide, after having already broke the franchise’s box office record – earning $500 million in its first nine days – buzz is as high as ever for the mutant superhero franchise and its future. Twentieth Century Fox, banking heavily on the financial and critical success of the latest X-Men team-up, had already planned a followup for 2016 (X-Men: Apocalypse) as well as another Wolverine movie the following year – but that’s not all the producers are planning.

In addition to having a screenplay ready to go for a long-in-development Deadpool movie starring Ryan Reynolds and directed by Tim Miller, and a script in the works by Jeff Wadlow for an X-Force movie, X-Men franchise producer Lauren Shuler Donner has been in talks with Channing Tatum about bringing him into the franchise ...

X-Force Plans Changed By X-Men: Apocalypse, Says Rob Liefeld

3 June 2014 8:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

You won’t find that many X-Men fans who were disappointed by Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, last month’s fantastic, time-travelling series update. However, that could change now that X-Force creator Rob Liefeld is saying the success of that film – and the quick green-lighting of follow-up X-Men: Apocalypse – has put a monkey wrench in Fox’s plans to bring X-Force to the big screen.

Monday, Liefeld responded to a fan question about the status of an X-Force movie by tweeting the following:

Everything changed when X-Men Apocalypse was announced… Rt @actionscomics: @robertliefeld and the movie of x-force? What’s new?

— robertliefeld (@robertliefeld) June 2, 2014

When a knowledgeable fan responded to that answer by asking whether that meant the upcoming film would include Cable, the leader of X-Force, Liefeld tweeted:

No! No knowledge at all Rt @TheAceOfKnaves: @robertliefeld @actionscomics are you inadvertently admitting Cable is gonna be in Apocalypse? »

X-Men: Apocalypse derails X-Force film, says creator Rob Liefeld

3 June 2014 3:47 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Rob Liefeld has hinted that X-Men: Apocalypse has derailed plans for an X-Force film.

The writer-artist, who created the Cable-led mutant team in the '90s, tweeted that plans have changed at 20th Century Fox following the announcement of the X-Men: Days of Future Past follow-up.

Everything changed when X-Men Apocalypse was announced... Rt @actionscomics: @robertliefeld and the movie of x-force? What's new?

— robertliefeld (@robertliefeld) June 2, 2014

He added that he does not know whether Cable - the time travelling son of Cyclops - will appear in X-Men: Apocalypse, but added that it was "hard to believe he won't".

Cable's origin is tied closely to that of the villain Apocalypse.

Kick-Ass 2 director Jeff Wadlow has been writing the X-Force script, which Liefeld has previously praised.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is out now. X-Men: Apocalypse is scheduled for release on May 27, 2016.

X-Men: Apocalypse may have scuppered plans for X-Force movie

2 June 2014 10:49 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Fox is pressing ahead with X-Men: Apocalypse for 2016 - but does that mean the X-Force movie is less likely to happen?

News

With X-Men: Days Of Future Past notching up record box office for the X-Men movie franchise, 20th Century Fox is understandably wanting to capitalise on its success by pushing ahead with more films. Thus, we're getting a new Wolverine sequel, a Gambit standalone film, and before both of those, X-Men: Apocalypse.

Apocalypse is set to mainly feature the First Class cast, so it'll be led by James McAvoy. But Fox's decision to push ahead so soon with the film (it's due in summer 2016) may have damaged the chances of the mooted X-Force movie making it to the big screen.

X-Force was created by Rob Liefeld, and it had been revealed last year that a film project was in development, with Kick-Ass 2's Jeff Wadlow directing. But as Liefeld noted over Twitter, »

"X-Force" Film Delayed By "Apocalypse"

2 June 2014 12:46 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In July last year came reports that 20th Century Fox had begun actively developing an "X-Force" movie. Jeff Wadlow ("Kick-Ass 2") signed on to write the screenplay and direct with an early script handed in which Rob Liefeld, creator of the "X-Men" spin-off comic series, really liked.

Things were looking rosy for the project - and then "X-Men: Apocalypse" was announced a few months back. Now, Liefeld hinted on Twitter this week that the announcement of that third film with the "X-Men: First Class" cast effectively stalled development of the "X-Force" film.

"Everything changed when X-Men Apocalypse was announced" he said, responding to a fan asking if there was any new information on the "X-Force" movie. Asked if there will even be an "X-Force" movie he responded "Coin toss I'd wager".

The original "X-Force" lineup in the comics was Boom Boom, Cable, Cannonball, Deadpool, Domino, Feral, Shatterstar and Warpath. Of those, »

'X-Force' Delayed by 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

2 June 2014 10:34 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After 14 years, 20th Century Fox's X-Men franchise is still going strong, with the latest installment, X-Men: Days of Future Past, earning over $500 million worldwide since its release over Memorial Day weekend. The studio is already moving forward with the next installment, X-Men: Apocalypse, although that project could have a negative impact on another comic book adaptation, X-Force. Rob Liefeld, who created the X-Force comic books, hinted on his Twitter page this morning that X-Men: Apocalypse disrupted the development of X-Force, and that he isn't sure if X-Force member Cable will appear in X-Men: Apocalypse.

Everything changed when X-Men Apocalypse was announced... Rt @actionscomics: @robertliefeld and the movie of x-force? What's new?

— robertliefeld (@robertliefeld) June 2, 2014

I have no idea if Cable will appear in future X-Men films. Hard to believe he won't appear in Apocalypse but I don't expect it.

Hugh Jackman Wants To See A Wolverine vs. Deadpool Movie

22 May 2014 6:33 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At this point, it’s safe to say that Deadpool’s inclusion in the ill-fated and universally-hated X-Men Origins: Wolverine still has fans of the character upset, especially since that solo Deadpool movie we’ve been hearing about for the last few years continues to collect dust on some Fox executive’s shelf. Last we heard, X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner was still interested in bringing the character back to the big screen, and listed the film as one of several potential spinoffs in the future.

Now, longtime X-Men franchise star Hugh Jackman has chimed in, giving his thoughts on bringing Wolverine and Deadpool together again on the silver screen. While doing press for X-Men: Days of Future Past, he talked to IGN and agreed with some of the criticisms, and said that he wants to get it right next time:

Kick-ass 2 Director to Rewrite Masters Of The Universe

11 April 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Fan art by nebezial

Sony’s Masters of the Universe remake is getting a rewrite. Jeff Wadlow, writer and director of Kick-Ass 2, has been brought on board to do a rewrite on the script based on the ‘80s animated series, which was awesome. Kick-Ass 2 was not so awesome, so I’m not sure how to take this news.  

I used to watch the Dolph Lundgren Masters of the Universe every year on Christmas Eve, but it’s been so long that all I remember is Skeletor falling at the end of the final battle. (I guess that was a spoiler. Sorry.) The animated series is more engrained in my memory, and I spent a lot of time playing He-Man and She-Ra when I was a kid. In other words, don’t eff up my childhood memories, Wadlow.

The most recent draft of the script was written by Terry Rossio, »

Sony looks to have kick-started movement on its proposed Masters Of The Universe reboot, with Jeff Wadlow signing up to write a new version of the script. Previously penned by Terry Rossio, the project has been in a state of flux ever since director Jon M. Chu jumped ship last year, but Sony looks to be keen to get things up and running once more. According to THR’s report, Wadlow has not been offered a deal to direct the film at this stage, but the possibility remains open further down the track. In the meantime, Sony will be...

Jeff Wadlow Drafting He-Man in ‘Masters Of The Universe’

10 April 2014 9:18 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Jeff Wadlow, coming off directing Kick-Ass 2 and writing an X-Force movie for 20th Century Fox is now taking up the chance to go to Eternia for Sony and work on the script for Masters of the Universe.

Previously, Jon Chu was attached to direct a Terry Rossio (The Lone Ranger) script, but Chu is very publicly tied up in another 80s toy cartoon adaptation Jem and the Holograms for Hasbro. This being a Mattel cartoon, well…

According to The Wrap, if the script is good, the directing gig could be his to, then he’ll get to play with He-Man and Skeltor in Castle Grayskull.

Prince Adam. I Have The Power! Seo out.

Jeff Wadlow Re-Writing Masters Of The Universe

10 April 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Masters Of The Universe is like a projectile rattling around the pinball table of development, careening from director to writer and back again but never quite settling. It’s off in a different direction again now, with Kick-Ass 2 writer/director Jeff Wadlow taking a crack at the script.The film, which will draw from Mattel’s popular 1980s toy line and the cartoons the company cooked up to help sell it, will present some take on the story of the heroic Prince Adam, who becomes the even more heroic He-Man via his magic sword and the power of Greyskull. He has to protect Eternia and its people from the singularly inept evil of Skeletor, who despite his skull face, also looks like he’s spent time at the gym with The Rock.Sony has been attempting to get this project on its feet since 2009, and thereby to wipe our memories clear of the 1987 film. »

Masters Of The Universe Reboot To Get A Rewrite From The Director Of Kick-Ass 2

10 April 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Back in the 1980s, Mattel's Masters of the Universe inspired countless hours of playtime for children. And Columbia Pictures has been working hard to spin this dusty franchise into a fresh feature to appeal to a new generation of fans. Their latest efforts to resurrect Masters of the Universe involves wrangling the writer-director of Kick-Ass 2. THR says that the studio has officially hired Jeff Wadlow to rewrite the screenplay for Masters of the Universe, a reboot inspired by the popular line of action figures that featured the likes of He-Man, Skeletor and She-ra, who were also featured in children's cartoon shows. Aside from Kick-Ass 2, Wadlow is known for co-writing and directing the devilishly entertaining horror-thriller Cry_Wolf. This might suggest that Columbia is angling for a more mature take on Masters of the Universe. That said, I doubt it would be anything beyond PG-13, because otherwise they'd be »

'Kick-Ass 2' Director to Rewrite, Possibly Direct 'Masters of the Universe'

10 April 2014 11:47 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since Jon M. Chu dropped out of directing Masters of the Universe back in October, Universal Pictures has been looking for the right filmmaker to take his place, with a number of directors reportedly in contention. Today, we have word that Jeff Wadlow, who wrote and directed Kick-Ass 2, has signed on to rewrite the script and possibly direct.

The filmmaker was mentioned in February as one of the many contenders for this coveted job, including Mike Cahill (Another Earth), Harald Zwart (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones) and Chris McKay, who served as the editor of The Lego Movie but has never directed a feature before.

Jeff Wadlow's deal is only to write the script at this time, he could still end up directing the feature. While many are wondering who will direct Masters of the Universe, sources claim that the story is still far from ready, »

Kick-ass 2 Writer/Director Jeff Wadlow to Rewrite Masters Of The Universe

10 April 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Masters of the Universe movie still doesn’t have a director, but it does have a new writer.  Sony has been developing a reboot of the Mattel adaptation for a few years now, with G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu previously attached to take the helm.  Chu subsequently departed the project later last year as Pirates of the Caribbean co-writer Terry Rossio came aboard to rewrite the screenplay, but apparently the project still has a significant amount of development left to go, as Kick-Ass 2 writer/director Jeff Wadlow has now signed on to do another rewrite of the script. Hit the jump for more, including the possibility of Wadlow taking the helm. Per THR, Wadlow does not have a deal to direct Masters of the Universe at this time, but it remains a possibility down the road.  For now, he’ll focus on shaping the screenplay with »

Jeff Wadlow Hired To Rewrite Masters Of The Universe

10 April 2014 11:23 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Yesterday, a source for Schmoes Know.com reported that Jeff Wadlow ("Kick-Ass 2") had signed on to direct Sony's He-Man & The Masters Of The Universe live-action reboot. Today, The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Wadlow has been brought in, but only to rewrite the script, originally penned by Terry Rossio (“The Lone Ranger”). Jeff Wadlow has come aboard to rewrite Masters of the Universe, Columbia’s big-screen adaptation of the popular 1980s Mattel toyline. At this stage, Wadlow, who wrote and directed Kick-Ass 2, does not have a deal to direct, although that remains a possibility down the road, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. Wadlow, wrote and directed last year's Kick-Ass 2, and had been working on 20th Century Fox's X-Force film. This recent hiring may mean plans for an X-Force are being shelved. Wadlow may not be the director just yet, but Sony needs to find a replacement for Jon M. Chu, »
