During a report about Liev Schreiber joining the upcoming prequel X-Men Origins: Wolverine, it was also discovered that Michelle Monaghan was up for the role of the Silver Fox. Is this bit of rumored news true? Well, yesterday while we were out on a set visit for the upcoming D.J. Caruso/Shai LaBeouf thriller Eagle Eye, Monaghan spoke about the allegations.
The actress stated, "We'll see. They have asked me to do it. It would be fun. I really like Hugh Jackman, and it is a great franchise. We will have to work on the dates, and see if there are any conflicts."
Leading up to the events of X-Men, X-Men Origins: Wolverine tells the story of Wolverine's epically violent and romantic past, his complex relationship with Victor Creed, and the ominous Weapon X program. Along the way, Wolverine encounters many mutants, both familiar and new, including surprise appearances by several legends of the X-Men universe.
The film opens May 1st, 2008.
