Pryde Of The X-Men
Brian Michael Bendis and Deadpool’s Tim Miller are reportedly developing a movie set in the X-Men universe. Bendis will be writing the script and Miller will direct. A source for the Hollywood Reporter says the movie will focus on Kitty Pryde , previously played by actress Ellen Page.
Deadline’s reports the project´s working title is 143, and there is an X-Men issue 143 from 1981 which happens to be an issue about Kitty Pryde where she hides from a monster in the X-mansion. Said to be an homage to the Ridley Scott horror classic Alien. That might fit well with the direction being taking with the New Mutants.
Personally I would like to see all Fox/Marvel projects being kiboshed, and for Marvel Studios to take over all creative aspects of their characters following the Fox/Disney buy out. But that’s just my feelings. You can’t always get what you want. We shall see what comes of this project. Its early days still.
