“Deadpool” director Tim Miller is reportedly developing an “X-Men” spin-off film, focusing on actress Kitty Pryde who plays Shadowcat.
The character was played by Ellen Page in “X-Men: The Last Stand” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past”.
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.
The spin-off film is in the works, though the project is not officially announced yet and is in early stage of development, reports aceshowbiz.com.
Meanwhile, 21st Century Fox studio is still actively developing several other previously-announced “X-Men” spin-offs which include “X-Force”, “Gambit (2019)” and a potential sequel to “The New Mutants”.
Miller, who departed “Deadpool 2” due to creative differences with its star Ryan Reynolds, has been tapped to direct “Neuromancer”, an adaptation of William Gibson’s 1984 sci-fi novel of the same name.
