Kitty Pryde film in the works with Deadpool director

Kitty Pryde film in the works with Deadpool director

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bendis and Miller will be working together on the project codenamed 143, which will be set in the X-Men universe. Probably nothing, and may only be a working title for whatever the plan is. He's renowned for creating iconic characters such as Miles Morales and Jessica Jones.

Pryde has always been an X-Men fan favorite and is influential, serving as an inspiration for Joss Whedon's Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Brian Michael Bendis, as stated above, is well known for his extensive Marvel work, so this is right up his alley. As for Miller, the creative is now working on the newest installment of Paramount and Fox's Terminator franchise, getting the film going in pre-production with the help of James Cameron.

Many assumed that Bendis would get involved with DC's film and television projects. And given the divide between Marvel Entertainment boss Ike Perlmutter and Fox, it's worth speculating if this project could have contributed to Bendis' departure from the comics division.

Fox isn't saying what that number represents or refers to, but long-time X-Men readers will realize that Uncanny X-Men #143 was the one-shot issue in which Kitty Pryde, a young mutant who has just joined Xavier's school, finds herself alone in the mansion with a N'garai demon.


The names attached to the project make the news all the more juicy.

A month ago, a story broke that Deadpool director Tim Miller was likely developing a Kitty Pryde movie for Fox.

Now, taken with the earlier scoop from Collider that Miller was set to direct a Kitty Pryde feature for the studio, it stands to reason this is probably the same effort, barring some sea change in the past few weeks. All of these are in development as the looming deal with Disney works its way through regulators before the sale is finalized.
