James Mangold Working on Potential X-23 Movie Script

Hugh Jackman’s swansong as Wolverine in this year’s Logan was amazing, and with Dafne Keen’s breakout performance as X-23 it should be no surprise that some people are asking what’s next for that corner of Fox’s X franchise. The obvious answer is to follow up on what happens to X-23 in this near-future world — and that seems to be the direction that things are going.

According to THR, Logan director James Mangold is working on a potential script for an X-23 centric sequel. Now, before you get too excited, remember that this is just an early stage for any project like that, and we have no indication that the sequel has been greenlit by Fox.

But man would it be neat if it does.

Black and White Version of ‘Logan’ Coming to Theaters May 16th

So it’s official, the rumored Black and White cut of Logan is real, and it’s coming to theaters. The film will apparently be making a one night engagement on theater screens May 16th. Director James Mangold tweeted out the news about the limited rerelease a few days ago:

There’s no word on how many screens this release will be on, but don’t expect a lot. Converting the film to black and white was apparently no small task either, as it’s not just a matter of converting the film to grayscale.

Converting Logan to black and white, with it’s deep noir and western undertones, will certainly add a new element to the already genius film, and if you’re free that night (and there’s a showing anywhere near you) I can’t imagine anything better to be doing.

This should be pretty damned cool.
