“Kick-Ass 2” director Jeff Wadlow has signed on to write, with an eye to direct, “X-Force” for Twentieth Century Fox, says The Hollywood Reporter.

As the name suggests, the film’s characters belong to Marvel’s “X-Men” Universe. Among the heroes amongst the characters, ‘Cable’ who is related to original X-Men Jean Grey and Cyclops.

Lauren Shuler Donner, who has worn a producer hat on the “X-Men” franchise, is on board to produce.

The news comes hot on the heels of XMenFilm.Com‘s discovery that Fox had registered the domain name X-Forcemovie.com, hinting at a possible future project. Fox, no doubt, had hoped to conceal the news until next week’s Comic-Con, where it’s likely they’ll officially announce the project.

Before any of this comes to fruition, Fox has Bryan Singer’s “X-Men : Days of Future Past” out 2014.

Wadlow, whose latest film “Kick-Ass 2” opens in August, got his start with a post-film school project called “Cry Wolf” starring Jon Bon Jovi in 2005.
