Director TIM MILLER (Deadpool) and comic book writer BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS (Ultimate Spider-Man, Jessica Jones) is teaming up for a secret ‘X-Men’ project titled 143. It is now revealed that ‘143’ refers to the ‘Uncanny X-Men #143’ featuring the phase shifting mutant ‘Kitty Pryde’ as she is left alone at the X-mansion on Christmas Eve and battles an N’Garai demon.
With the upcoming ‘New Mutants’ film entering the horror genre, it seems like they want to expand the universe even further into horror with ‘143’.
No words yet on if ELLEN PAGE (Inception) will reprise the role of ‘Kitty Pryde’, who she portrayed in 2006’s ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’ and 2014’s ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’.
Stay tuned for more details as casting gets underway.
