Simon Kinberg, the writer-producer behind Fox's hallowed X-Men franchise, is the top contender to direct the studio's next X-Men project. Kinberg reportedly wrote a script for a new X-Men film a year ago, presumably as a follow-up to X-Men: Apocalypse.
Kingberg has been heavily involved with the X-Men franchise for quite sometime now and has either produced or written films such as X-Men: Days of Future Past, X-Men: The Last Stand, and the upcoming Logan.
However, this time we will be seeing the familiar face of Sophie Turner returning as Jean Grey/ Dark Phoenix in the movie which has been aptly titled X-Men Supernova.
Jimmy Kimmel will not let Matt Damon come near Oscar's stage
ABC, which is the network airing the Oscars , will be live from the red carpet beginning an hour before the ceremony, at 7:00 p.m. In less than a week, Jimmy Kimmel will host what many anticipate to be the most political Academy Awards in recent memory.
Kinberg earned an Oscar nomination previous year as a producer for The Martian, and has generally penned a good mix of both winners (like Sherlock Holmes in 2009) and losers (like 2015's Fantastic Four).
All the project seemed to need was a director and writer/producer Simon Kinberg came in as a flawless fit. Obviously, the movie wasn't what we wanted it to be and it wasn't received the way we wanted it to be.
Simon Kinberg has provided an update on Fox's Marvel movies that don't involve Wolverine or Deadpool. With two somewhat subliminal trilogies about the X-Men and the X-Men First Class, it is a head scratcher why the studio intends to stick with the X-Men label.
Kinberg's checkered X-Men past when he's not a producer, along with the uncertain future of the core X-Men series after Apocalypse, may not paint a promising picture for the next chapter.
Now, with the critical successes of Fox's most recent X-Men output like Logan, Deadpool, and FX's Legion, Kinberg seems pretty confident that the world is finally ready for one of the most beloved X-Men stories to never get a cinematic adaptation.
The mutant superhero series X-Men took a big hit when critics and fans alike panned X-Men: Apocalypse as an overambitious, unimpressive waste of potential. Yet handing the fourth prequel to Kinberg would be the exact opposite of bringing in the new blood this franchise might really need again, even if he would be new as a director. James McAvoy, who plays the young Charles Xavier, also posted the following on his Instagram in the last day, with the quote "I can't wait for the summer".
