X-Force Movie Is Still In The Works

Published

on

Production Weekly (via Digital Spy) is claiming that X-Force is scheduled to kick off production this October, and that Reynolds and Brolin are already locked in to return as the Merc with a Mouth and his time-traveling pal (sometimes). Given Zazie Beetz’s impending debut as Domino in May’s Deadpool 2, we assume that she’ll also be back for the planned off-shoot. Considering the timeline for making the film, it certainly lends into the possibility that X-Force will be ready to roll-out by 2019 (perhaps in the summer time after New Mutants‘ release in February next year).

Following the Fox and Disney buyout (which would return the rights to Fox’s Marvel IPs to Marvel Studios), it was revealed that Goddard is still attached to X-Force. The project is currently expected to proceed as planned, along with the other X-Men films that are in some stage of post-production at the moment (namely, Deadpool 2, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and New Mutants). At the same time, the fact that Fox is moving forward with so many mutant films and TV shows of their own right now (including, FX’s Legion) has left many X-Men fans puzzled, given the impending deal with Disney and Marvel Studios.

X-Force looks to start filming this October, with both Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin reprising their roles as Wade Wilson/Deadpool and Nathan Summers/Cable, respectively. That means the actors will only have a few months of downtime before they’re called back to set to spearhead their growing mutant crew on a brand new adventure, after Deadpool 2 hits theaters in May.

Based on the comic book property created by Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld in 1991, the X-Force film adaptation has gone through multiple changes in creative personnel. Kick-Ass 2 writer and director Jeff Wadlow was originally tapped to write the screenplay in 2013, before he was replaced by Joe Carnahan last year. The gig ultimately landed on Drew Goddard’s lap after that, and it appears as though he will be the one who actually oversees the operation, assuming the latest update on the project is accurate.

Deadpool Director: There’s An Additional 20 Minutes

Published

on

Deadpool 2 will be getting an extended cut when it hit store shelves.

During a new interview for the sequel, the filmmaker also confirmed there will be about 20 minutes of deleted scenes for fans to pore over when this superhero sequel debuts on Blu-ray, DVD and digital formats.

“This is just ballpark, but I’d say there’s an additional 20 minutes of stuff. I am actually putting it together now. We’re taking sort of it slow. There’s a lot of alts we want to play with. I want to get Ryan in there so we’re making sure we’re all on the same page of like the comedy we want to do and the narrative. There are some great scenes in there that have been just lifted and it would be fun to be back in.”

The director also clarified that his first cut for the studio, his director’s cut, was between two hours and 12 minutes and two hours and 15 minutes

Zombieland 2 Plot Details Leaked Online

Published

on

Zombieland 2 will finally start filming in October. Details of the sequel have already been leaked online.

According to sources, Sony’s follow up to the 2009 film will focus on the aftermath of the first zombie outbreak.

Zombieland Too opens with a question. What would happen if we ran out of zombies? An interesting concept, one that hasn’t been explored in any film of the genre thus far. The way the film approaches answering the question is both hilarious and depressing. The change from ‘zombies’ to ‘no zombies’ can be considered as big as the change from ‘no zombies’ to ‘zombies.’ It’s such a dramatic transformation to one’s routine, what they consider normal, that it fundamentally alters their mentality. Boredom and apathy seep into each person’s psyche, slowly growing discontent with one another until they reach an inevitable boiling point.”

Splash Report also posted news on the potential plot for the sequel.

“The main plot of Zombieland Too follows the gang as they attempt to find Little Rock after she ran away with an individual (unnamed due to spoilers). Columbus, Tallahassee, and Wichita embark on a journey that takes them all the way across the country to hopefully save LR from certain death. You know how earlier I mentioned zombies were now extinct in Zombieland? I lied. You see, while the regular, lumbering creatures from the first film have no interest in humans anymore, rendering them essentially extinct, they have been replaced by Super Zombies, giant, muscular, incredibly tough beings that are only able to be killed through a headshot. A horde of these super-zombies has been migrating from city to city, destroying everything in its wake. And it’s up to the gang to finally put an end to this bloodshed, or face extinction themselves.”
