I don't even know what to think of this guy anymore bc he wrote both the smartest and the dumbest entries in the franchise.antovolk wrote:Kinberg in talks to write and direct the next one: http://collider.com/x-men-7-director-simon-kinberg/
DoFP is smart only if you ignore all the continuity problems which can only be 'fixed' by some contrived fanthoeries.Bacon wrote:Yeah, exactly.Dobson wrote:Don't forget he also wrote X-Men: The Last Stand and Fant4stic
Smartest entry in franchise - DoFP
Dumbest entry - TLS
And Apocalypse didn't help his case either.
Fox has formalized plans for Dark Phoenix, the next installment of the X-Men franchise. This all just happened, but they’ve formalized Simon Kinberg as director, and the studio set a release date of Friday, November 2, 2018. Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, and Kodi Smit-McPhee are all reprising when production begins in Montreal.
http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-v ... le-1013462Jessica Chastain is in negotiations to star as the villain in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, the latest installment of Fox’s banner-carrying X-Men movie franchise.
Longtime X-Men steward Simon Kinberg is writing and due to make his directorial debut with the tentpole, which is aiming to retell the defining Dark Phoenix storyline from the early 1980s comic book.
Sophie Turner is reprising her role as the X-Men heroine Jean Grey, aka Phoenix, a telepath who, in the comics, saw her powers become amplified to the Nth degree when she becomes imbued by a cosmic energy called the Phoenix Force. It eventually overtook her personality and made her bad, necessitating the X-Men to stop her.
The storyline was crudely adapted in 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand, which was critically maligned and rejected by fans. Kinberg and co. are looking to redeem that effort with their own take that sources say will hew closer to the classic story by Chris Claremont and John Byrne.
If a deal makes, sources say Chastain would play Lilandra, the empress of an alien empire called the Shi’ar, who leads the quest to imprison and execute Dark Phoenix, leading her into conflict with the X-Men.
