Kitty Pryde Movie (D: Tim Miller)

Sources have confirmed to us that Tim Miller of Deadpool fame is hard at work developing a solo movie for the famous phasing member of the X-Men, Kitty Pryde, to potentially direct. Best known by the codename Shadowcat, but also taking on the aliases of Ariel, Sprite and even the mantle of Star-Lord over the years, Pryde is a mutant with the ability to “phase” or become intangible, which basically allows her (and anything she’s touching) to pass through solid objects, disrupt electromagnetic fields, and even levitate. Miller’s setting the project up at 20th Century Fox, the current home of Marvel’s X-Men, X-Force, Wolverine, The New Mutants, and the aforementioned Deadpool titles, but the much-publicized potential buyout by Disney will almost certainly complicate things.

To be clear, a Kitty Pryde movie is very much in development at Fox by Miller at the moment, but even without the expected merger valued at $52.4 billion, a movie that’s in development doesn’t necessarily end up going into production. Just look at the list of “announced” projects for super-producers like Steven Spielberg or Ridley Scott–who just added a possible Disney project of his own–to get an idea of how many pictures are in development versus how many come to pass. Factor in that Miller himself is currently producing a Sonic the Hedgehog movie for Paramount and will be directing the new Terminator film for the studio for a 2019 release, and then add in the fact that the regulatory review of the Disney/Fox merger should take anywhere from 12 to 18 months (if it is approved at all) and things get a bit more complicated.

But Fox isn’t just sitting around waiting to see if they’ll be folded into Disney or not; they have to actively pursue movie projects like normal. Neither is Miller taking a “wait and see” approach. While ultimately Kitty Pryde might never hit the big screen, the fact that he’s actively developing the picture is an interesting and exciting bit of news. (Again, we want to stress that this film, in its current version, might never see the light of day due to any number of reasons, from Fox passing on it, to Disney scrapping it completely, to a Disney and Fox potentially working out some sort of compromise if the merger deal falls through.) If Kitty Pryde does come to pass, it will be the first time the Marvel mutant gets her own big-screen title and would follow sometime after Simon Kinberg‘s upcoming film X-Men: Dark Phoenix. Not a bad pair of films to celebrate Fox’s first female leads for a Marvel title since the beleaguered Elektra.

I look forward to this never being released. And I say this as a Kitty fan.

I dunno, I like Kitty Pryde, but mainly because of her introduction in the X-men as kind of the wide-eyed kid of the team. Having her in a solo film without having her already established in the universe is a tough sell, to me, unless they just drastically change her character or something.

Yeah, without Wolverine or Colossus or any significant character that is part of Kitty's life it doesn't sound very interesting.

Fox Teams Tim Miller, Brian Michael Bendis For ‘X-Men’ Mystery Project ‘143’

EXCLUSIVE: Twentieth Century Fox has hired Brian Michael Bendis to develop a script for Deadpool helmer Tim Miller to direct. The movie is shrouded in secrecy, but I have confirmed it is a new feature that is set in the X-Men universe and it has a title: 143.

What could 143 refer to? No one at the studio is saying. The number in X-Men lore refers to the 1963 Uncanny X-Men comic where Kitty Pride is left alone at the mansion on Christmas Eve, and battles an N’Garai demon.

More horror involving the younger mutants? sigh. At least no problem in the demon looking like a xenomorph from Alien.

Out of all the X-Men characters, this seems like a weird one to try and do a solo movie for.

So, would Ellen Page be back for this?

Re: Kitty Pryde Movie (D: Tim Miller)

I find a possible Kitty Pryde movie the least interesting bit from that excerpt. So Paramount is working on a Sonic Hedgehog movie?! and Tim Miller is going to direct another Terminator movie that's coming out next year?

Talk about scrapping the bottom of the barrel. A film about Jubilee would be only slightly less ridiculous.

I would hope they would recast since she's supposed to be 14 at this point?

Cue Millie Bobby Brown.

^^^

I was going to disagree with you. Then I remembered every one of her performances in everything I have ever seen her in.
