Back in February of 2018 20th Century Fox hired Tim Miller and Brian Michael Bendis to direct and write, respectively, a mysterious X-Men movie called 143. We later learned that this was going to be a project about Kitty Pryde and last we heard from Bendis about 9 months ago in a now deleted tweet he was working on the project. Now it sounds like things might be on the backburner. Miller is currently doing promotional work for Terminator: Dark fate but he was asked about the Kitty Pryde movie in the wake of the Fox sale to Disney by ComicBook.com and he didn’t seem too optimistic that it’s ever going to happen.
“I love the X-Men. I don’t expect Marvel to call me and say, ‘Come do the X-Men,’ so I’m not waiting for that.” Miller said. “I was really excited about my Kitty Pryde movie. F**k, I love that movie. It’ll never happen now.”
The Kitty Pryde movie is one of many X-Men projects currently hanging out in limbo in the wake of the sale to Disney. The New Mutants is such a troubled production that there are rumors we might not ever see the movie in any form let alone on the big screen. Then there are movies like the spin0ff starring Laura aka X-23 or Multiple Man that were in the works. Dark Phoenix bombed hard over the summer so there isn’t any reason for Disney to keep any of these movies in development when they could wipe the slate clean and start over.
Summary: Sarah Connor and a hybrid cyborg human must protect a young girl from a newly modified liquid Terminator from the future.
Terminator: Dark Fate, directed by Tim Miller, stars Linda Hamilton, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, Gabriel Luna, and Diego Boneta. It will be released on November 1st.
