X-FORCE Director Jeff Wadlow Discusses The Film's Tone; Says It Won't Be Dark & Gritty

Source: Bleeding Cool
Over two weeks ago, Kick-Ass 2 director Jeff Wadlow was announced to officially be on board the upcoming X-Force project over at Fox. With Kick-Ass 2 set to hit theatres earlier next week, the director was discussing the film, until a member of Bleeding Cool asked the director where he & Mark Millar stand on the project. Wadlow went into full details regarding the topic, here's what he said!  
"I’m very deep into it. I can’t really say much as Fox has asked me not to but, again, it’s not a reboot or reimagining of the X cinematic universe. Tonally it will fit in, quite well with all the other movies… but then I think the other movies cover a wide range of tones. It’s certainly not going to be tonally similar to Kick-Ass.
I hope it will have what fans of X-Force will expect. I think it will be a little edgier, I think you’ll see some characters with different takes on what it means to be a mutant. There will be some grey areas that the movies haven’t yet been explored. It won’t be as “overt.” This movie is more about the grey areas in between.
I’m going to take some big ideas from the X-universe and flip them, I think in an interesting way. It’s hard to talk about that, though, without being specific. I probably shouldn’t have even talked about that at all because I can’t get into the specifics but I will say it’s similar to Kick-Ass 2 in that it wasn’t an open assignment, it wasn’t “We’re going to make an X-Force movie, who’s interested? Here’s what the movie’s going to be.”
When Mark [Millar] got the job with Fox I said “The first movie you guys should make is an X-Force movie and here’s how you should do it.” And that got him excited, and that got the studio excited and that’s the movie I’m writing.."
As of now there is no set release date for X-Force but you can expect the film to hit sometime 2016. Kick-Ass 2 is set to hit theatres August 16th.
