One of the few mutants not confirmed for X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST was Halle Berry’s Storm, but that might be close to changing. In an interview, Berry said she’s 90% sure she’ll be returning to the role in the Bryan Singer helmed sequel.
The interviewer had this to say about her:
“She did confirm to me that she would be returning in the role. Most likely. Practically 90% sure. And she nodded a lot too. I can’t say, and neither could she say that it’s definitely a done deal, and that the contracts have all been signed, with all the “i”s dotted and the “t”s crossed.
“A few details that are still being negotiated which she couldn’t get into. But since she did tell me that the film starts shooting in April, it’s highly unlikely that talks are going to suddenly and horribly fall apart at this point, and the producers have to scramble to find a replacement at the very last minute.”
The film already stars Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, and Peter Dinklage, with James Marsden, Famke Janssen, and Halle Berry seemingly not far behind. The film opens July 18th, 2014.
