The Gifted (FOX) -- X-Men TV series ordered from creator of Burn Notice

http://deadline.com/2016/07/marvel-s...er-1201785566/

Fox has given a put pilot commitment to a new Marvel X-Men action-adventure series from writer Matt Nix.

The untitled project will focus on two ordinary parents who discover their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.


The series will be produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Marvel Television, with 20th handling physical production. Nix will write the pilot and serve as an executive producer. X-Mens Lauren Shuler Donner, Bryan Singer and Simon Kinberg also will serve as executive producers.

Just a Pilot was greenlit. This is probably in development for the 2017-18 season. Matt Nix, for those who don't know, was the creator of Burn Notice on USA.

Sounds like another excuse for a heap of fringe characters and no main eventers

Yeah, I wish Fox would branch off a B list X-Men character for a show instead of what they've been doing. Legion isn't even B list!

Meh. Not feeling the Kid Mutant angle. But I guess once they meet up with others there will be a nice balance with Adults.

Untitled X-Men TV series (FOX) ordered to Pilot from creator of Burn Notice

The news today is that Bryan Singer is directing the Pilot.


http://deadline.com/2017/01/bryan-si...ox-1201893940/

Bryan Singer To Direct Fox’s X-Men-Themed Marvel Drama Pilot

X-Men feature helmer Bryan Singer is set to direct Fox’s X-Men themed Marvel action-adventure drama pilot from Burn Notice creator Matt Nix, 20th Century Fox Television and Marvel Television. Singer already executive produces the pilot and had been expected to helm it though the directing deal took some time to close.

The untitled project focuses on two ordinary parents who discover that their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.

Nix exec produced with Singer, Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg, all key auspices of the X-Men feature franchise, as well as Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory.

Singer helmed summer 2000 blockbuster X-Men and the 2003 sequel X2: X-Men United. Singer returned to the X-Men universe in 2014 as director and producer on X-Men: Days of Future Past. Most recently, he directed X-Men: Apocalypse, starring Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender. Singer will next direct the remake of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea for 20th Century Fox. He also has been in talks to direct Bohemian Rhapsody, the long-in-the-works movie about the seminal British rock band Queen, which is currently on a fast track at 20th Century Fox and New Regency.

On television, Singer also serves as an exec producer on FX’s X-Men-themed Marvel drama series Legion, along with Shuler Donner and Kinberg. He previously directed the pilot and served as an executive producer on the long-running Fox medical drama series House.


Here's the original story from yesterday. Matt Nix, who created Burn Notice, is writing the Pilot.

http://deadline.com/2017/01/x-men-ma...ix-1201893509/

Fox has made it official, handing its first drama pilot order of the season to an X-Men-themed Marvel action-adventure drama from Burn Notice creator Matt Nix, 20th Century Fox Television and Marvel Television.

The project, which is untitled, had been a standout. Early versions of the script by Nix had been received enthusiastically at Fox and the producing studios, with a formal pilot green light contingent upon delivery of the final draft. Exploratory casting already had begun, with the process expected to ramp up now that there is an official pilot order.


The drama, which had a put pilot commitment, focuses on two ordinary parents who discover that their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive. The show appears particularly timely, dealing with the plight of minorities in society where there might not be enough tolerance for them.

Edit:

Thanks dex14 for merging that thread.

Forgot I created the original thread last summer.

Fox and director Bryan Singer’s big Marvel drama pilot has found its first mutant.

The untitled project has cast Blair Redford (Switched at Birth, Satisfaction), EW has learned exclusively.

Redford will play Sam, “the strong-headed Native American leader of the underground network.”

The drama will focus on two ordinary parents who discover their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.

Singer, who directed four X-Men films, is on board to direct and executive produce the pilot. Officially the show is not being called an X-Men series, but showrunner Matt Nix has previously told reporters that it will indeed take place in the same universe as the films.

“It’s sort of designed to side-step questions like, ‘Where is Wolverine?'” Nix teased. “There is a certain amount of those characters that I can use and I’m using some of those. Other characters I’m inventing but everything is invented with a nod to the existing mythology.”

Jamie Chung to Play Blink in Fox’s Marvel Pilot From Bryan Singer
Elizabeth Wagmeister TV Reporter @EWagmeister
FEBRUARY 22, 2017 | 09:00AM PT

Another X-Men character has been cast in Fox’s Marvel pilot from Matt Nix and Bryan Singer.

Jamie Chung will star as Blink, the popular character from the comics with the power of teleportation, Variety has learned.

The untitled action-adventure series is a hot project at Fox with A-listers behind the scenes. Nix penned the pilot and will serve as executive producer with Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg, Jeph Loeb, Jim Chory and Bryan Singer, who is on board to direct the pilot.

The pilot from 20th Century Fox TV and Marvel Television will focus on two ordinary parents who discover their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.

Chung’s character Blink — real name Clarice Fong — is described as sarcastic, lively and a bit of a tomboy. Her naturally strong exuberance has taken a hit after a sudden and traumatic upheaval of her life. As she adjusts to the new people and places that are suddenly “home,” she is slowly becoming herself again.

Chung is the second series regular to sign onto the pilot. She joins Blair Redford (“Switched At Birth”) who will play another mutant, Sam, the strong-headed leader of the underground network. A slew of other superhero characters are currently in the process of being cast.

Should the pilot be greenlit to series, the show would mark Chung’s biggest broadcast project yet. She was a regular on NBC’s short-lived drama “Believe,” though the series was canceled after one season. She recently appeared on another superhero-based series at Fox with a recurring role on “Gotham.” She also played Mulan in an ongoing part on ABC’s “Once Upon A Time,” and will recur on Hulu’s upcoming season of “Casual.” Chung rose to fame as a contestant on “Real World” and is credited with becoming one of the most successful alums of the MTV reality show.

Chung is repped by Gersh, 3 Arts and attorney Todd Rubenstein of Morris Yorn Barnes Levine Krintzman Rubenstein Kohner & Gellman.

Jamie Chung to star in Fox/Marvel series with Bryan Singer attached

-- From The Hollywood Reporter:

Bryan Singer will direct the pilot, which is written by 'Burn Notice' grad Matt Nix.




Jamie Chung is entering the Marvel universe.

The Gotham actress has signed on to play the famed character Blink in Fox's Marvel drama pilot, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The untitled project revolves around two ordinary parents who discover their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.

Also known as Clarice Fong, Bing is described as sarcastic, lively and a bit of a tomboy. Her naturally strong exuberance has taken a hit after a sudden and traumatic upheaval of her life. As she adjusts to the new people and places that are suddenly 'home', Clarice is slowly becoming herself again.

First introduced in the X-Men comics in 1994, the character of Blink also boasts the power of teleportation. She was portrayed by Chinese actress Fan Bingbing in 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Matt Nix (Burn Notice) will serve as showrunner and also executive produce alongside franchise veterans Lauren Shuler Donner, Bryan Singer and Simon Kinberg as well as Marvel's Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory. X-Men film franchise veteran Singer will also direct the pilot, which hails from 20th Century Fox TV and Marvel.

Chung is the first actor cast in the highly anticipated project. The role would keep Chung at Fox, where she is currently playing another comic book character, Valerie Vale, on the network's Gotham. Her other credits include Once Upon a Time, The Hangover Part II and Big Hero 6.

Heh, wonder if they'll get his wife to guest star as Rogue at some point if this show isn't canceled in it's first season.

There's nothing I can say about that actress that won't result in someone posting the Chris Hansen gif, so I'll just say nothing at all.

Seriously though, I've never watched Gotham, but I just googled her, and yes, she's quite an attractive young lady.

I saw her on The Goldbergs, and while she left that show to do Gotham, I can't have been the only one who realized she was way too pretty to be dating Adam Goldberg character.

Looks like it will be called Gifted. Also Coby Bell from Burn Notice was cast.

I'm a little surprised they don't just slap an x on the title like Marvel does with each comic iteration, or at least promote the fact that these are all XMen related somehow.

They probably don't want to deal with constant 'is it a shared universe?' questions.
