DEADPOOL Director Tim Miller Will Team With Brian Michael Bendis For Mystery X-MEN Movie 143

DEADPOOL Director Tim Miller Will Team With Brian Michael Bendis For Mystery X-MEN Movie 143

21st Century Fox has yet another X-Men spinoff in the works, & although details are pretty much nonexistent right now, we do know there's a pretty damn awesome creative team behind it. More past the jump.

According to Deadline, Fox has hired Brian Michael Bendis to develop a nex X-Men movie script for Deadpool helmer Tim Miller to direct. We don't have any details beyond that, but the project is known as 143.

The report doesn't give us any indication of what this title means, but we're thinking it could be a reference to a comic issue. Over the years there have been several different issue #143s spread out over volumes etc, but a special Christmas edition of Uncanny X-Men from 1963 pops up first with a Google search.

That issue was Shadowcat-centric, so when you also take this film's director into account, there's a good chance that this is actually the Kitty Pryde movie  Collider first mentioned a couple of months back.

That's just speculation for now, so feel free to let us know what you guys think in the comments below.

UPDATE: Looks like we have confirmation that 143 and that Kitty Pryde movie are indeed one in the same!
