Famke Janssen May Return as Jean Grey in “X-Men: First Class” Sequel
20th Century Fox is developing a sequel to “X-Men: First Class,” which will feature time-traveling at the center of its story. Because of that, Patrick Stewart was recently asked if there’s a chance he may reprise the role of Professor X in any upcoming “X-Men” films. “I think there is every possibility,” he said. “Yes, I’ll be reprising [the role of Professor X].”
MTV News now sat down with Famke Janssen, who’s promoting her directorial debut “Bringing Up Bobby,” and asked her about she may return for the “First Class” sequel, called “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” She said that she cannot say anything, but hinted: “One never knows. Jean Grey, the Phoenix… she finds a way to reincarnate herself constantly, so one never knows. Stay tuned.”
“X-Men: Days of Future Past” has Kitty Pryde sending her mind back to her younger self in order to warn the X-Men that Senator Robert Kelly’s assassination will result in a future where Sentinels rule the United States and mutants live in internment camps. It’s set to hit theaters on July 18th, 2014.
