James Fraco To Play James Franco To Play James Franco In X-Men Universe’s Multiple Man

It seems that the X-Men universe is the best at finding busy actors for one off projects. Multiple sources today report that James Franco is in talks to play the mutant, Multiple Man, existing in the same world as Gambit, New Mutants, Deadpool, X-Force and of course, the X-Men. Cue the Eric Dane (played the role in X-Men: Last Stand) cameo in 3, 2, 1…

Multiple Man (real name, Jamie Madrox,) has the ability to not only clone himself instantly, but also send those clones of to be in different places, doing different things, with different people, all at the same time. His powers are usually controlled by a suit he wears to contain the kinetic energy that causes the instant cloning to happen. Franco and X-Men producer Simon Kinberg apparently created the idea while working on the Hardy Men, in which James and Dave Franco play the grown-up Hardy Boys. Yes, that already sounds perfect. Allan Heinberg (Wonder Woman) would write the script.

James Franco may need one of these suits as well. Along with the Hardy Men project, he just finished doing just about everything to make The Disaster Artist, played identical twins on HBO’s The Deuce (with a second season already confirmed,) and has no less than 12 other projects currently in some form of production. Are we sure he isn’t the Multiple Man already? Let’s hope he finds the time to send a clone over to get this done! Tell us what you think – comment or tweet us!

Fox Is Giving You All The Movies

1280x720-c7CWith Bill O’Reilly finally out, Fox was finally free to reveal a giant slate of movie release dates. On top of setting out the future of the Avatar franchise, and firming up the Predator date, New Mutants, directed by Josh Boone will open, April 13, 2018. Following that, the much anticipated, Deadpool 2 (directed by David Leitch) will drop on June 1st of the same year, and they’ll close¬†out the year with the likely less anticipated, hopefully second time’s the charmk story, Dark Phoenix, coming November 2nd.

As expected, this means we’ll probably get X-Force in 2019, and following that, yet another stab at trying to tell a good, original X-Men story. Of course, there’s still that little Channing Tatum/Doug Liman project out there. Gambit, anyone?
