Joe Carnahan, the writer/director behind the likes of The A-Team and The Grey, has been tapped to write the script for the upcoming X-Force spinoff for Fox.
When last we heard, Simon Kinberg was said to be working on the screenplay for the film. Whether or not that is still the case remains unclear at this time however. Kinberg is currently prepping for producer roles on Deadpool 2 and New Mutants. Additionally, it is rumoured that he could very well be the director on the next X-Men film.
At this time, Carnahan is currently attached only to write the screenplay.
He remains attached to direct Bad Boys For Life, recently penned an adaption of the Uncharted video game, and is currently planning a remake of The Raid.
X-Force will focus on a heroic group of mutants that are darker and more violent than your average X-Men roster. It is rumoured that the characters may end up appearing in the third Deadpool movie.
