BEST BETS: "Jessica Jones," "Big Trouble/Escape from New York" & More October 2016 Highlights
After appearing as Kitty Pryde in 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand, Ellen Page returned earlier this year to shoot director Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. And the actress tells Vulture she’d be up for third go at the beloved character.
Proclaiming “I’m available!” should Kitty Pryde fan Joss Whedon make a solo film, Page said, “Kitty Pryde’s awesome. I’m super grateful to be the actress who’s gotten to be her, and you only desperately hope that the true fans who have a right to demand what they want and who have been passionate about these stories for a really long time, that you can pull it off for them. I would be so thrilled to play Kitty Pryde again. I really would.”
Page’s comments come even as news broke that she’s in negotiations to star as Tara Chace in the Fox adaptation of Queen & Country, the Oni Press espionage series written by Greg Rucka and illustrated by various artists.
X-Men: Days of Future Past opens on May 23, 2014.
