Brian Michael Bendis Is Still Writing Tim Miller's 143 Despite Fox's Marvel Movies Being On Hold - <font color=red>EXCLUSIVE</font>

Earlier this month, X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner confirmed that all Fox Marvel movies have been put on hold but Brian Michael Bendis has now provided us with a very interesting update about 143...

At the start of February, Superman writer Brian Michael Bendis made headlines when he told a fan on Twitter that he's still working on the secretive "Project 143" for director Tim Miller. Rumour has it that the movie will revolve around Kitty Pryde but roughly 24 hours after his Tweet, longtime X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner confirmed that all of Fox's Marvel movies were on hold.

So, you'd think that would pretty much be it for the project, right? Well, I spoke to Brian yesterday about Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (we'll have that up on the site tomorrow) and he once again reiterated that, as of right now, he's still penning the screenplay. 


"I'm literally working on it today. I know there's confusion and guesswork about what's going on with Fox and Disney but I have no information about that. I do not know what is going on with anything other than that I have been contracted to do something I'm very excited to do with someone I really, really like as a creator. I think Tim is one of the best ever and I'm having a really good time doing it so we'll see what happens. Honestly, I was literally taking a break from writing it to check Twitter the other day and someone said 'Hey, what's going on with that thing?' and I said I'm working on it right now but didn't realise that was news so, yeah, I'm still working on it." 

As of right now, Disney would not legally be able to have any sort of say about what's happening behind the scenes at Fox but you have to believe that Marvel Studios will want to at least consider keeping the impressive team of Bendis and Miller around, even if that that requires some major rewrites to the very interesting sounding female-led spinoff movie. 

Either way, Kitty Pryde is a great character who deserves to be done justice on the big screen, so here's hoping we get to learn more about what "Project 143" has in store for her in the near future.
