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.”
