X-Men fans could be in for a treat as FOX eyes bringing a live-action series to the network.
Fox entertainment chairman Gary Newman recently confirmed to TV Insider that the network is working on negotiations to develop a series. “It’s in negotiations,” Newman told TV Insider. “We’re cautiously optimistic, we had a good meeting with them. That will not be on a fast track creatively. This is just the deal, now we have to find the creative.”
All seems to be moving along, save for one snag according to TV Insider: getting through all the red tape. “Sister production company 20th Century Fox controls the film rights to the X-Men characters, the comic itself is owned by Marvel, which is based at rival Disney. A live-action TV series requires Marvel’s blessing – and that has led to some delicate talks.”
