X-Men spin-off to target adults
The film is expected to join the list of such X-Men films like Deadpool and Logan
James Franco is on board to produce as well as act in the X-Men spin-off, Multiple Man. “I do have a superhero that I am developing. I don’t know how much more I can say. But I am producing and performing in it. It’s still early stages,” says Franco, adding that the spin-off will appeal to a lot of adults, much like films like Deadpool and Logan did.
Franco will be working with Simon Kinberg, a longtime X-Men producer and the director of the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix. “What I love about what Simon Kinberg and Fox is that they are going to go for a hard R rating. We are going to take this superhero thing and really push it into a new genre,” he says.
