X-Force is next X-Men priority for Ryan Reynolds
Now that Deadpool is made and about to hit cinemas, Ryan Reynolds has his eye on the planned X-Force movie...
On the eve of Deadpool landing in UK cinemas tomorrow, Ryan Reynolds has revealed that there's another project in the X-Men movie universe that he has his eye on.
Chatting to Filmstarts, Reynolds was asked about where else he sees the character going in the X-Men films. And he cited the stuck in development X-Force movie.
"There’s so much material to mine in just the X-Men universe", he said.
"In the future, if we’re doing a bunch more Deadpool movies, we’re really going to explore the X-Men a lot. We’ll see. And maybe X-Force - X-Force is my priority. I really want to get that in".
The last we heard on X-Force - and it was a while ago - was that Kick-Ass 2 helmer Jeff Wadlow had been hired to pen a screenplay for the project. But whilst other X-Men projects are pressing forward - most notably New Mutants - this one seems stuck.
However, the tenacity of Reynolds may be a big trump card in its favour. His dogged determination to get Deadpool to the screen has lasted the best part of a decade. And if Deadpool hits big? He might just have the added clout to get a few other things moving.
We'll keep you posted...
