During an episode of the latest episode of Meet the Movie Press, Jeff Sneider talks about Angelinas career and that there is a rumor about Fox wanting Angelina to star in the new X-Men: Dark Phoenix movie. If this is true or not, we will just have to wait and see to find out!
X-Men 7, officially titled X-Men: Dark Phoenix, is going to be one of three X-Men movies Fox is releasing in 2018. With production needing to get underway relatively soon in order for the movie to hit its November 2, 2018 release date, some casting rumors are starting to surface. If this particular rumor is true, Fox is going after some A-list talent in the form of Angelina Jolie for an unspecified role in X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
The news comes courtesy of Jeff Sneider, who dropped the revelation very subtly on the latest episode of Meet the Movie Press. While talking about Universal’s possible plans of nabbing Angelina Jolie for the lead role in The Bride of Frankenstein, Sneider also slipped in that she appears to be in contention for a part in X-Men: Dark Phoenix. Here’s what he had to say about it.
“I think Angelina Jolie needs to reassert her commercial viability and needs to do a big movie. And if it’s not Dark Phoenix, which I don’t think it will be, Then I think that she should do Bride of Frankenstein.”
Several sites are posting about the rumours about Angelina joining this project and a lot of other A level names are being mentioned again.
W Magazine writes:
Angelina Jolie may play big time into Universal Picture’s somewhat quixotic bet on turning classic movie monsters into the next big shared cinematic universe mega-franchise to rival those created by Marvel and DC Comics. The studio has already signed on megastars like Tom Cruise, Javier Bardem, Russell Crowe and Johnny Depp, as they unveiled in (what turns out to have been) a composite group shot last week, but they very much wish Jolie was in the mix as well to play Frankenstein’s Monster’s bride.
The problem: negotiations with Jolie haven’t even begun.
The director Alex Kurtzman, who just made The Mummy talks to Fandom and mentions the further projects and how he wants Angelina to star:
“We know we’re going to do Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, Dracula, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Phantom of the Opera, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Invisible Man,” he says.
The Dark Universe is an ambitious project in its infancy and casting rumours are already beginning to swirl around the franchise. There has been talk, for instance, that Angelina Jolie may pick up the Bride of Frankenstein role. Kurtzman does nothing to dismiss this when asked who he’d like to bring into the Dark Universe.
“I’d love to bring Michael Fassbender in, I’d love to bring Jennifer Lawrence in, I’d love to see Charlize Theron in there, Angelina Jolie…” he says.

ANGELINA JOLIE IS CONFIDENT
This week, also find an exclusive interview of Angelina Jolie by her friend and journalist Mariane Pearl. The star talks about her plans and her state of mind. She confides in her mother role and her own mother, whom she defines as “great wisdom”.
“I know how much she would have contributed to their lives and I am sad they will miss out on that,” she said. “I would give anything for her to be with me at this time. I’ve needed her. I talk to her often in my mind and try to think what she might say and how she might guide me.”
On behalf of Angelina Jolie Source we want to wish Shiloh a Happy Birthday on her 11th birthday and we hope she had a wonderful day!
