Bendis To Pen “X-Men” Kitty Pride Film

Comics author Brian Michael Bendis is teaming with “Deadpool” director Tim Miller for an “X-Men” spinoff currently going by the codename “143”.

Set in the X-Men universe, “143” is a code name for the project which sources say will focus on the character Kitty Pryde who can phase through objects. Ellen Page previously played her in both “X-Men: The Last Stand” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past”.

Bendis, who wrote various “X-Men” comics during a twenty-year stint at Marvel, will write the script while Miller will direct. Collider first broke the news of the project’s existence and Miller’s hiring last year.
