Fox Approached Jason Reitman About Helming A Solo KITTY PRYDE Movie
Fox were once said to be planning a series of standalone X-Men movies. The critically panned X-Men Origins: Wolverine put a stop to that. Jason Reitman now reveals that he was at one point approached to helm a Kitty Pryde movie which would have been written by Diablo Cody and starred Ellen Page.
The guys over at /Film recently took part in a 10 hour marathon podcast which featured appearances from the likes of Rian Johnson, Damon Lindelof and Bryan Singer. As you can see below, Young Adult director Jason Reitman told the site that Fox wanted him to reteam with writer Dialo Cody and actress Ellen Page (they worked together on Juno) for a solo Kitty Pryde movie.
Jason Reitman revealed that at one point, 20th Century Fox talked to him about possibly directing a Kitty Pride X-Men standalone movie, starring Ellen Page and written by Diablo Cody. The three combined to make the Oscar-winning film Juno, and Reitman also directed Cody’s next script, Young Adult. And while Retiman’s X-film obviously didn’t happen, Page will return in the role for X-Men: Days of Future Past.
This particular spin=off could have been interesting, especially if they had explored Kitty's complex relationship with Colossus. While it now seems unlikely that this will ever happen, Ellen Page's Kitty Pryde WILL still return in Bryan Singer's upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past.
