James McAvoy Updates On X-MEN: DOFP, THE CROW And WANTED 2

In a new interview, the Scottish actor reveals that he is actually yet to read the script for X-Men: Days Of Future Past. He also calls his involvement with The Crow reboot just "rumor mill stuff" and gives an update on the status of the Wanted sequel..

As director Bryan Singer and his crew busy themselves with pre-production on X-Men: Days Of Future Past, you would assume his cast are all ready and waiting to jump right in as soon as shooting is set to commence - but when you're as busy as James McAvoy is, sometimes things have to be put on the long finger. In an interview with Getty Images Entertainment to promote his new movie Welcome To The Punch, the actor reveals that because of his hectic schedule he hasn't even had a chance to scan the script. "The X-Men script? It’s in my inbox… I’ve still got to read it," admits McAvoy. "I’m very excited about it but I’ve just been doing so much of this (interviews) and working at night so I’m starting work at 9 and don’t finish until midnight so I’m not being flippant… I honestly can’t wait to read it and find out what I’m doing but I’ve just got no time right now.” McAvoy also updates on a couple of other projects he's been linked to:

On playing the lead in the remake of The Crow:

“It’s not for real. I don’t think it’s materialized into anything truthful yet… it’s just been rumour mill stuff.”

And on Wanted 2:

“They’re doing the right thing. They won’t go ahead with it unless they get a story that feel totally and utterly 100 per cent passionate about. If they don’t have that then frankly they shouldn’t go ahead. But if they get a story together that they feel that way about then great, yeah.”

You'll not that he says The Crow hasn't materialized into anything YET, so that at least suggests that there's been some discussion. Wanted 2 sounds like it'll be some time away if it happens at all, but was anyone really crying out for a sequel to that one anyway? Sound off below.

x-men days of future past (interested in seeing how good or bad this turns out)

the crow (only interested in a original story,no remake)

wanted 2 (the first movie was nothing like the comic book so not interested in this at all)

Wanted was a cool movie based on a mediocre comic book.
Crow was the same...he should do those projects,seems to be a good formula.

I'm extremely interested about X-Men: Days of Future Past, but I'm even more looking forward to McAvoy in this year's Trance and Welcome to the Punch.

I wanted a Wanted sequel!!!

McAvoy didn't say, young Charles doesn't meet old Charles for sure in this movie.
It's just his opinion, because they didn't meet in comic.

Someone steal the script and then destroy every copy.
jimoakley666 - 3/7/2013, 9:46 AM
Cannot wait to start seeing some concrete stuff from this.
