Simon Kinberg, Lauren Shulder Donner and Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds will produce the movie.

The movie will be centred on Deadpool and Cable, who lead a band of ruthless mutant warriors.

X-Force was a spin-off of New Mutants, the very first X-Men spin-off, that launched in the early 1990s and was co-created by Rob Liefeld, best known as the co-creator of Deadpool.

The studio has been expanding its universe of movies based on the X-Men characters and has three titles out next year: X-Men: The New Mutants, directed by The Fault in Our Stars helmer Josh Boone, will open April 13; Deadpool 2, directed by David Leitch and starring Reynolds and Josh Brolin, is set for a June 1 launch; and Kinberg’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix gets released on November 2.

Both Reynolds and Josh Brolin are expected to star in X-Force.
