Cancelled Movies. Wiki

Around 1989, Stan Lee and Chris Claremont entered in talks with Carolco Pictures and Lightstorm Entertainment to make a film adaptation of the X-Men comic book series, with Cameron as producer, Kathryn Bigelow as director and Gary Goldman as writer. Bob Hoskins was slated to star as Wolverine and Angela Bassett was attached to star as Storm. Claremont also contacted Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Jim Shooter to revive the character of Jean Grey due to the character's demise in The Dark Phoenix Saga comic book storyline.


The plot would be the same as the comic book.

Why it was cancelled[]

  1. Lee piqued Cameron's interest on the long planned Spider-Man film and after the defunction of Carolco Pictures.


  • The film was finally released in 2000 with Bryan Singer as director.
