Angelina Jolie is eyed for X-Men role

June 12th, 2017 by Marc 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.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
