X-Force Film Reportedly Enlists Joe Carnahan

“X-Force” is moving forward. Though there are conflicting reports, it seems as though director Joe Carnahan is now attached to the upcoming “X-Men” film. Collider reports Carnahan is simply co-writing “X-Force” with “Deadpool” star Ryan Reynolds, while ComicBook.com says Carnahan will both write and direct. When reached by CBR, Fox declined to comment.

Carnahan has a hefty amount of action credits to his name. As director, he has helmed “The Grey,” “The A-Team,” “The Blacklist” and “Smokin’ Aces.” He also recently announced his involvement with “The Raid” reboot, which will star Frank Grillo.

Reynolds, of course, contributed to the script of the massively successful “Deadpool” film. He will also help shepherd “X-Force” to the big screen as executive producer. As with “Deadpool,” Reynolds hopes “X-Force” can achieve an R-rating in order to incorporate more violence and strong language.

“X-Force” has no official release date, but Fox has plenty of “X-Men” projects in the works. Josh Boone’s “New Mutants” is aiming to begin production in late April in Montreal, while “X-Men: Supernova” — the rumored seventh installment in the main “X-Men” movie franchise — will allegedly start production mid-May. FX’s “Legion,” Fox’s “X-Men” television series, airs Wednesday evenings at 10PM on FX. Another as-yet-untitled “X-Men” series is also in the works.
