Superhero Hype! talked to Famke Janssen, who plays Jean Grey in the “X-Men” films, this weekend while she was promoting her new thriller “Hide and Seek” (more info) and we asked about the status of X-Men 3!
SHH!: Are you going to be involved in the next X-Men film?
Janssen: Don’t know quite yet, but probably… I’ve heard things and they’re developing the script right now, Dark Phoenix is part of that script.
SHH!: Would you miss Singer?
Janssen: Oh I would, yes. I think he made those movies.
SHH!: Who in the cast is coming back?
Janssen: Some people are because of signed contracts, and some people can renegotiate. So I’m sure it has to do with a lot of different things. I’m not contractually obligated. I wouldn’t want to do a sequel for the sake of a sequel. Hopefully there’s a good director involved or the character is fun to play.
SHH!: Is the film going to revolve around your character?
Janssen: I’ve heard things like that, but at the same time I’m realistic about knowing that they’re going to have to give a bunch of people a good chunk of the movie for them to want to come back. And then there’s going to be new characters introduced, so it’s always a little tricky. If it’s anybody’s movie ever, it’s going to be Wolverine’s movie because that’s the number one X-Men character. But we’ll see. From what I’ve heard? Yes, she’s a big part of it.
