Reel Quick: Brian Michael Bendis Still Working on Fox/Marvel Film ‘143’

The Fox/Disney merger has a lot of us wondering what films in development at 20th Century Fox will get cancelled. Fox continued to greenlight X-Men related projects, including a mysterious one from Brian Michael Bendis codenamed 143.

Bendis recently confirmed to ComicBookMovie that he’s still actively working on the screenplay:

“I’m literally working on it today. I know there’s confusion and guesswork about what’s going on with Fox and Disney but I have no information about that. I do not know what is going on with anything other than that I have been contracted to do something I’m very excited to do with someone I really, really like as a creator. I think Tim is one of the best ever and I’m having a really good time doing it so we’ll see what happens. Honestly, I was literally taking a break from writing it to check Twitter the other day and someone said ‘Hey, what’s going on with that thing?’ and I said I’m working on it right now but didn’t realise that was news so, yeah, I’m still working on it.”

The film is rumored to be centered on Kitty Pryde.


Do you think the film will get made? Or will the merger throw this into the cancelled bin?
