Ellen Page Would Love to Make Joss Whedon's KITTY PRYDE Movie

Director Joss Whedon has said several times over the years that he would love to make a Kitty Pryde movie one day. I doubt it will ever happen, but if one day it does happen, Ellen Page will be there to star in it! In a recent interview with Vulture, she was asked if she has heard of Whedon's plan and replied, 

"I have heard that, yeah! Well, I'm available. I love that. Kitty Pryde's awesome. I'm super grateful to be the actress who's gotten to be her, and you only desperately hope that the true fans who have a right to demand what they want and who have been passionate about these stories for a really long time, that you can pull it off for them. I would be so thrilled to play Kitty Pryde again, I really would."
Whedon is great at what he does, and I'd love to see what he would do for a standalone Kitty Pryde movie. Right now Page is working with director Bryan Singer on X-Men: Days of Future Past, and she went on to talk about working with him, saying,

"I don't know how he pulls off everything he does in a day. He is really great with actors and really wants the truth of the performance to exist, to sort of elevate that kind of a film, which I feel he did with the first two 'X-Men' movies. He was sort of the first to take that kind of a spectacle of film and tell a deeply, deeply human story."
It will be interesting to see how big of a role she will play in that story. I'm not sure how big of a fan demand there is for Kitty Pryde, but if Whedon made the movie, I would definitely watch it!
