Famke Janssen says she and the original cast of X-Men are done with the series

5 July 2017 11:14 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

It’s going to be quite the year in 2018 for 20th Century Fox and Marvel with not one, not two, but three X-Men related films set to take over the multiplexes next year as they go full speed ahead into the comic-book world.

One of the films in the glut of those upcoming is X-Men: Dark Phoenix, the new film as part of the “new” X-Men franchise which sees producer Simon Kinberg make his directorial debut. Following the events of X-Men: Apocalypse, the latest entry will try to re-do the Jean Grey/Dark Phoenix saga that was somewhat unsuccessfully brought to the screen as part of 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand.

In that film it was Famke Janssen who played Jean Grey and the actress has been speaking about her experiences with the franchise and says that the original cast (namely her, Halle Berry, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, »

X-Men: Famke Janssen reckons the original cast are done now

4 July 2017 10:29 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jul 5, 2017

Don't expect any more cameos from the original X-Men cast. Famke Janssen looks back on the original X-Men movie...

It’s been nearly 17 years since the first X-Men movie, directed by Bryan Singer, arrived in cinemas and helped fuel a fresh boom in comic book movies. And as recently as this year, some of the cast from that film – Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart – were still playing the roles they debuted all that time ago, this time in Logan.

Famke Janssen was one of the original ensemble, and she was playing the role of Jean Grey right up until X-Men: Days Of Future Past.

Chatting at Denver Comic-Con last week, Janssen looked back on the original X-Men, and reckons that original cast’s work is now done in the series.

“That was so amazing. I never knew – I don’t think any of us had any understanding »

Famke Janssen believes she’s done playing Jean Grey in the X-Men franchise

4 July 2017 8:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As 20th Century Fox gears up to retell the Dark Phoenix Saga with its First Class cast in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, Famke Janssen has been talking about her time as Jean Grey in the X-Men series during an appearance at Denver Comic Con, during which she admitted that she believes she’s made her last appearance in the franchise.

“I think we’re done, but it was really great while it lasted and it lasted for a long time,” states Janssen, who made her first appearance as Jean in the original X-Men in 2000. “It’s been nothing but a pleasure working not just as Jean Grey, which was such an honor because comics were so fantastic already, but then the entire cast who I got to play with, all my fellow actors, thespians who are so talented. It was just a wonderful experience. I’m very grateful.”

Before Game Of Thrones star Sophie Turner stepped into the boots of one of Marvel's most powerful telepaths in X-men: Apocalypse, the character of Jean Grey had been potrayed (for years) by actress Famke Janssen.

Netflix Original Series: A 2017 Breakdown of Dramas in Decline

3 July 2017 12:20 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

When Netflix started taking its originals game seriously — a.k.a. when it started commissioning productions by itself — the surging streaming service quickly earned a prestigious reputation. On the backs of “House of Cards” and “Orange is the New Black,” the over-the-top platform became an immediate awards contender and critical darling.

But over the last 12 months, as Netflix releases more and more original content, there’s been a noticeable dip in the quality of its dramas; a dip that precedes a changing of the guard for the service when it comes to TV’s kingmaker: the Emmys.

The Good News

Let’s start with what’s working: At this time last year, “Stranger Things” was about to set the summer on fire with a surprisingly addictive and widely beloved first season. Matt and Ross Duffer’s homage to ’80s family fright films earned respectable reviews, but a cultural tidal wave »

We May Have Seen The Last Of Famke Janssen In The X-Men Movies

3 July 2017 11:20 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When the first X-Men movie arrived on the scene, it was truly something else. Sure, some fans were ready to burn the filmmakers in effigy for deviating from the comics in a variety of areas, but the fact remains that it was the first superhero movie outside of anything featuring Batman or Superman to help legitimize the genre on the big screen. Furthermore, it’s hard to argue that it was the first cinematic offering based on a Marvel property other than Blade worth writing home about.

In the time since, there have been no shortage of films starring our favorite mutants, each of which have arrived to various degrees of reception. But no matter which efforts were good or bad, we can’t deny the strong performances put forth by the actors involved, chief among which were those delivered by Famke Janssen.

Once Upon A Time In Venice – Review

18 June 2017 5:21 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Review by Mark Longden

I genuinely have no idea what to make of Once Upon A Time In Venice. Like, why was it made? Who thought “yes, this is definitely the best we can manage” and released it to the public? Just before I looked up the career of co-writer / director Mark Cullen, I had the creeping realisation that this felt like a double episode of a basic-cable light drama show like “Burn Notice”, only not quite as good; it turns out Cullen has previous form in TV, being the creator of two failed shows (“Back In The Game” and “Mr Robinson”), and also the writer of “Cop Out”, the comedy that director Kevin Smith described as the most miserable experience of his life.

But I feel like Mr Cullen shouldn’t get the lion’s share of the blame for this – that must go to top-billed Bruce Willis, who »

Film Review: ‘Once Upon a Time in Venice’

15 June 2017 5:27 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Remember “Cop Out,” 2010’s less-than-momentous clash of the action-comic stylings of Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan? If the answer is “no,” you’d be entirely forgiven, yet Willis himself appears to regard it with some measure of fondness. That’s the most plausible explanation for his headlining presence in “Once Upon a Time in Venice,” a similarly negligible but rather more chaotic caper from Mark and Robb Cullen, the fraternal duo behind the “Cop Out” screenplay. Assuming directing as well as writing duties this time, the Cullens prove no heirs to the Coens as conductors of oddball underworld mayhem, with much of their glib quippery soured by gauche minority stereotyping. What scant charms this direct-to-video-style Nineties throwback has belong mostly to Willis, as a grizzled Venice Beach gumshoe juggling a number of shaggy-dog cases, chief among them the abduction of his own literal mutt. The back alleys of ancillary and streaming await. »

John Goodman’s Dream List: 3 Filmmakers He Wants to Work With After ‘Roseanne’

12 June 2017 10:22 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

John Goodman and Bruce Willis have been friends since 1979, but somehow never worked together before “Once Upon a Time in Venice,” the action-comedy that hits theaters and video-on-demand on Friday, June 16. The directorial debut of writer-producer Mark Cullen, “Once Upon a Time in Venice” stars Willis as a Venice Beach P.I. who teams up with his surf shop-owner best friend (Goodman) to track down a drug dealer’s stolen cocaine. The film co-stars Jason Momoa​, Famke Janssen​, Thomas Middleditch​ and Adam Goldberg.

For Goodman, who received a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame in March, being able to finally work with Willis on a movie was an offer he couldn’t refuse.

Logan Director Reflects On Decision To Cut Jean Grey From Wolverine’s Last Hurrah

23 May 2017 6:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Today marks a very special day for X-Men fans as 20th Century Fox is poised to unleash Logan, James Mangold’s lauded thriller that closed the book on Wolverine’s saga with style and grace, onto Blu-ray and DVD.

By all accounts, it’s been a relatively quick turnaround from the studio – remember, Logan first clawed its way into theaters back in March – and you’d be hard-pressed to find any Wolverine fan worth their salt that isn’t about to add Mangold’s R-rated masterclass to their Blu-ray collection. What’s more, the director has spent the past few days soliciting all sorts of questions pertaining to Hugh Jackman’s last hurrah in those adamantium claws, including the infamous Westchester incident and why he considers Logan‘s finale to be bittersweet.

When pulled together, James Mangold’s post-mortem makes for some interesting reading – if nothing else, it shows the »
