Even MORE "X-Men" Spinoffs?
From USA Today: "The first spinoff will be Hugh Jackman's "Wolverine." His character has an as-yet-unrevealed back story in which researchers replaced his original bones with a metal skeleton. Jackman has signed on to star and co-produce, and "X-Men" producer Lauren Shuler Donner says it will likely head into production next year.
"We've also talked about doing something on the kids in (Professor X's) school, focusing on their lives, and less of a global adventure for the team," says Hutch Parker, production president of 20th Century Fox.
The studio is also exploring a movie with "Three Kings" director David O. Russell based on the character of Emma Frost, a sexy mutant telepath who can transform her skin into diamonds. She is an "X-Men" comics regular but was not featured in the movies.
Another likely solo project: "Magneto," also in the script phase. The film will focus on his youthful pre-villain days, Shuler Donner says."
