Anna Paquin Back In ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’

3 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It was reported earlier this year that Anna Paquin, one if the main stars of the original trioligy, had been cut from the latest X-men film. During the edit of X-men: Days Of Future Past, director Bryan Singer confessed that due to time constraints he has unfortunately had to cut the only scene to star Paquin’s mutant alter-ego Rogue. It would seem that something has changed though as Fox have confirmed that she will make an appearance albiet in a much smaller cameo role.

The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed the True Blood actresses name in the credits of the final trailer. If you didn’t then why not re-watch it here and see for yourself.

Considering the time-travel element of the story that will essentially bridge Singer’s branch to the Matthew Vaughn’s, it was not at all surprising that someone got cut. Let’s just »

Fox Finds Superior

18 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

A few years ago, we sat down with Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar to get the lowdown on some of his other developing comics projects. Among them was Superior, which Millar told us he was putting together as a film deal even as he wrapped up work on the book. Things have been quiet on the film front since then, aside from some talk of regular Millar collaborator Matthew Vaughn producing any movie version. Cut to today, and 20th Century Fox has grabbed the rights to the title.That Fox would land Superior isn’t much of a shock: Millar has been involved behind the scenes with the studio on various comic book properties, working alongside the likes of Simon Kinberg and Vaughn himself. Plus, the studio is bringing out another of the writer’s titles, The Secret Service, with Vaughn calling the shots and Colin Firth starring. We got a »
