‘X-Men 4’ in the Works

LA Daily News reports that X-Men executive producer Lauren Shuler Donner is currently working on the cast for a 4th installment in the movie franchise. Renegotiations would be needed to secure the main stars of the previous three films.

Donner says "The newer cast members are signed, and the older cast members are not." Considering the older names involved -- Halle Berry, Hugh Jackman, Rebecca Romijn, Famke Janssen and Anna Paquin -- that could run into a huge chunk of money.

All that's putting the cart before the wolverine, of course, since Hugh Jackman is set to reprise his role as the manicure-challenged mutant superhero in his own film. "Next, we're going to do 'Wolverine,' but not before the end of the year because he's in the Baz Luhrmann film," she says of the filmmaker's untitled Australian epic with Nicole Kidman. However, "We have the script and are working on it."

Shuler Donner reports, "We also have 'Young Magneto' in development."

          RUmor Kill!!! There WILL be an X-Men 4! I called 20th Century FOX Entertainment and Marvel Entertainment and they are currently considering it since they left numerous cliff hangers and are currently creating plot lines and script-drafts for the FILM!! OMG! So happy! It prob won't be out until 2015 though, They are currently casting for X-Men: First Class and it will premier in June of 2011 and Magneto has his own origin series coming AND X:Men Orgins Wolverine 2 is cirrculating as a SEQUEL to his series! Hopefully in about 3 years they'll begin seriously plotting scenarios for the 4th installment of the ORIGINAL X-Men Movie Franchise. I know its a few years away BUT they are considering it and SO many fans want it. Especially how they left Professor Xavier ALIVE in the End of X:3 and how Jean Grey being the Phoenix RISES FROM THE ASHES meaning SHE CANT DIE. And as for Cyclops WE NEVER SAW HIM DIE. FOX could say that when he and Jean were Kissing he felt him self in pain by jean when she was going all dark phoenix on him during the make out session and pulled away LIKE WOLVERINE DID WHEN SHE TRIED TO SCREW HIM. Jean could have came to her normal self for a moment LOSING CONTROL OF HIS POWER and he could have ACCIDENTALLY blasted her across the river bank of Alcalye Lake RESULTING in what we saw in the movie... Wolverine and Storm finding her uncontious laying on the rocks of Alcalye Lakes river bank. AN EASY COVER UP ON FOX'S PART. We saw the professor talking about the possibility of moving ones mind into a non-contious body WHEN THEY SHOWED Myra Mc'Taggart and that guy whos vital organs were in tact but was in a deeep accoma. And end the end of X3 we saw professor X wake up in that guys body and heard his voice and Myra said "Charles??" in a surprised tone! THERE WILL BE AN X4 AND IM SOOOO HAPPY! (sorry for the capital letters im a diehard X-Men fan lmfao). So yaaa. X 4 will prob happen but in a few years. OH and we saw Magneto get his powers back at the end when he moved the chess piece and since rouge had the cure too it means the cure is TEMPORARY. Gambit was introduced in the Prequel so he will prob be contracted to X4 too and Im guessing Emma Frost will appear like she did in the NEWEST tv animated series to take over for Charles Xavier like she did in the TV series. Jubilee will prob be back as well but have a bigger part. Im guessing Nightcrawler will too, as well as Angel, Beast, Collasus, Shadowcat, and maybe even Forge! This should make for an EXCELLENT movie! -xoxo

                      They need to make a Alpha Flight movie or introduce Alpha Flight in Xmen series. They are a canadian group but... BADASS. Also no one here has mentioned The Avengers. Hulk, Ironman, Wolverine, Spiderman etc... That would be the hit.

                        Josh, Dajew, it's old because it was posted back in 06. Look at the comments. They wouldn't be at 200 that fast. And look at previous users comments. It came back to the feed because people were commenting on it again.

                          you need to keep the same cast, with a better story. simple enough. xmen isnt the same without certain characters being present, mainly storm and wolverine. and this came out what, a month after x3? haha

                                  If you guys change the main characters including the wolverine (HUGH JACKMAN), I will not see that movie. INcluding many other people. You will loose a lot of money if you change the stars. Its like making a new harry potter movie with totally different characters, it would be dumb to go see.
