X-Men Producer Simon Kinberg Teases Possibility of R-Rated X-Force Film
Deadpool has proved an enormous hit born from a big risk. Its R-rating has done less alienating and more enticing toward an audience that has received the character with open arms.
A sequel has been greenlit, yet Ryan Reynolds has gone on to say that he desperately wants to see an X-Force film come to life. The sequel for Deadpool is set to feature Cable, a notable member of the X-Force team, so its certainly a possibility depending on how well Cable is received.
Now producer Simon Kinberg has joined the conversation, stating: "I think there are some stories that could be R-rated. I don't know what they are, I mean I think the mainline X-Men movies have their own tone, which is a more operatic tone. It's more dramatic, it is more PG-13 in a way. X-Force I could see being R-rated, and who knows?"
X-Force has been in developmental hell, but has had its flame re-lit in the wake of Deadpool's success.
