Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

The ‘Force’ is strong with the X-Men fran­chise. Ac­cord­ing to The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter, the mak­ers have roped in ac­claimed screen­writer Drew God­dard to write and di­rect X-Force, star­ring Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin, its X-Men spin-off that will fea­ture both Dead­pool and Ca­ble. Si­mon Kin­berg, Lauren Shuler Don­ner and Dead­pool star Ryan Reynolds will pro­duce the movie. The movie will fea­ture Dead­pool and Ca­ble as lead­ers of a band of ruth­less mu­tant war­riors. X-Force was a spin-off of New Mu­tants, the very first X-Men spin-off launched in the early 1990s and co-cre­ated by Rob Liefeld, best known as the co-cre­ator of Dead­pool. The stu­dio has been ex­pand­ing its uni­verse of movies based on the X-Men char­ac­ters and has three ti­tles out next year: X-Men: The New Mu­tants, di­rected by The Fault in Our Stars helmer Josh Boone, will open April 13; Dead­pool 2, di­rected by David Leitch and star­ring Reynolds and Josh Brolin, is set for a June 1 launch; and Kin­berg’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix, re­leases on Novem­ber 2.
