Because of X-Men: Apocalypse...
Rob Liefeld claims on Twitter that the X-Force movie may have a monkeywrech thrown into it that is named X-Men: Apocalypse. Liefeld, the outpoken creator of Deadpool and X-Force and a co-founder of Image Comics, was answering fan questions about various things when he suggested that the announcement of Apocalypse may have sidelined the X-Force movie.
The film's script was written by Jeff Wadlow (Kick-Ass 2) and at last word was going to be directed by him. Liefeld isn't directly involved with the film so he may not know everything in terms of its status, but he has been privy to aspects of the process. He had good things to say about Wadlow's script, for example.
Liefeld did have a somewhat optimistic bent when someone questioned the film being made though, commenting as follows:
Negativity? Be patient! RT @RyanRocca: So with the negativity around x-force film being made, do you feel DP has a chance? @robertliefeld
