Angelina Jolie is eyed for X-Men role

June 12th, 2017 by bash Comments



Fox are reportedly eyeing up either Angelina Jolie and Jessica Chastain for a role in X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

Popcorn Talk’s Meet the Movie Press show released the news this week but there’s been no word on what characters they’d play and if indeed both actresses are in talks for a role.

Chastain actually had a role in Marvel’s Iron Man 3 before eventually pulling out of the project while Jolie is also rumoured to be in the running for a role in Universal’s Bride of Frankenstein.

Simon Kinberg is set to direct the film with Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner reprising her X-Men: Apocalypse role as a young Jean Grey.

Filming is expected to begin in June in Montreal, with a release scheduled for 2 November 2018.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
