Chris Claremont is the man who made the X-Men what they are. He took the comic book series in the seventies and, with Dave Cockrum, John Byrne, Paul Smith, John Romita Jr, Marc Silvestri, Jim Lee, and Alan Davis among others, made those characters as we know them today. And in the process co-created Rogue, Psylocke, Shadowcat, Phoenix, The Brood, Lockheed, Shi’ar, Shi’ar Imperial Guard, Mystique, Destiny, Selene, Reverend William Stryker, Lady Mastermind, Emma Frost, Tessa, Siryn, Jubilee, Rachel Summers, Madelyne Pryor, Moira MacTaggert, Lilandra, Shadow King, Cannonball, Warpath, Mirage, Wolfsbane, Karma, Cypher, Sabretooth, Empath, Sebastian Shaw, Donald Pierce, Avalanche, Pyro, Legion, Nimrod, Gateway, Strong Guy, Proteus, Mister Sinister, Marauders, Purifiers, Captain Britain, Sunspot, Forge and Gambit amongst many. Plenty of who have made it or are making it into film.
Well, now Chris Claremont is looking for a film agent. He wrote or co-wrote the comics that much of the X-Men movies are based on, especially Days of Future Past. But he’s written many other comics and novels – and now seems to like the idea of branching out into film.
If you are a film agent and would like to talk to Chris, if only to get the lay of the land, he’s waiting for your message right now on Facebook.
After all, he is the best there is at what he does…
