Lauren Shuler Donner, one of the main producers behind the huge and lucrative X-Men franchise, has for a long time been talking about a possible fourth film in the original movie saga. She has on numerous occasions talked up the project, where she’s also discussed the possibilities of bringing back on board X-Men and X-Men 2 director Bryan Singer with the sentence, “Nothing would please me more than to bring Bryan on for another movie”, something which Singer would later reply to by confirming that he would love to return to the franchise for another go at it.
Well I guess all that talk about wanting to do this and loving to be able to do that, has actually led to something as Donner apparently is in the midst of prepping a fourth movie. It’s still in the early stages though, having yet to officially approach Fox to pitch the idea. However if the idea is solid, and her prep work is about getting Singer back, then I can only imagine Fox wanting to greenlight another film as they are whoring out the franchise as much as possible already with spin-offs, spin-offs of the spin-offs, and kid friendly prequels.
