Deadpool, Cable to lead next X-Men movie: Simon Kinberg
Producer Simon Kinberg confirms that 'X-Force' is going to center around Deadpool and Cable.
The 43-year-old film producer says that after finishing the production of Ryan Reynolds starrer Deadpool 2, he will start working on the new X-Men movie, reported Deadline.
"We are working hard on new mutants, Gambit (2018) with Channing Tatum, Deadpool 2 and the new X-Force movie where Deadpool is alongside Cable and other main characters. Deadpool 2 is going into production this year," says Kinberg. "The 'X-Force' which is a combination of Deadpool and Cable - they're like the Black ops of the X-Men."
"They're much darker and have an R-rated decibel.
There are other X-Men characters coming into 'X-Force' at different times in the comic, but it's separate from X-Men," he added. Sharing more details about the movie, the producer says, "It's something that's fun, exciting and it will be interesting to see how we marry the different tones that we've been generating in these standalone movies of the X-Men universe."
Kinberg continues, "But we go into making the best movie we can. It's not just about a Colossus or Deadpool cameo."
"Connecting all of these movies will happen when it organically makes sense. These movies aren't simply being built as stepping stones to a larger story."
