An X-Men movie without a Halle Berry Storm? Blasphemy!
We reported earlier how X-Men: Apocalypse would take place in 1983, but we thought that Halle’d be asked to come back seeing as how she’s eternally youthful!
However, in a recent interview, the writer of the upcoming sequel, Simon Kinberg, mentioned that Halle would not be partaking in the film!
Here’s what the scribe said:
“If we included some of the original X-Men, like Storm, Jean, Scott, and others, yeah we would have to recast them, because Apocalypse takes place a good twenty years before “X1,” which now insanely was fifteen years ago. It would be very hard to do…Halle, Famke, and Jimmy, and others have done such wonderful jobs of bringing those characters to life and they’re so identified, those actors, with the parts now. So it would be a tall task├óΓé¼┬ª So, are we going to have to recast? If some of those characters were in the movie we would.”
A new Storm, Jean, AND Scott?!
We guess we’ll have to find some way to cope with all these mutations to the cast.
