Simon Kinberg Gives Script Update For James Franco-Starring ‘Multiple Man’

James Franco Multiple Man Marvel X-Men

Dark Phoenix writer/director Simon Kinberg recently provided an update on the state of the script for the Multiple Man movie starring James Franco.

The Multiple Man movie caught fans off guard when it was announced, especially with Spider-Man’s James Franco attached to star, but out-of-left-field superhero movies seem to be more common now than ever. Franco isn’t the only person attached to the film with a successful superhero franchise past. The script for Multiple Man is set to be written by Allan Heinberg, the writer of 2017’s Wonder Woman.

If you’re still excited to see Multiple Man on the big screen, Kinberg recently provided a brief update on the status of the film’s script. Kinberg has been in headlines recently to promote the release of the Dark Phoenix trailer, but it’s not the only X-Men film he’s given an updated on. While speaking with IGN in a recent interview, this is all Kinberg had to say about the upcoming Multiple Man, confirming that the project is still in development.

“Multiple Man, that script’s being worked on right now…”

Though it’s not a major update on the film, Heinberg taking his time on the script isn’t exactly a negative thing. Plus, the film is being developed alongside multiple projects in the X-Men franchise such as X-Force from writer/director Drew Goddard, and the upcoming Gambit movie. If you’re pumped for more X-Men movies though, you don’t have to wait for these films to get your fix. This upcoming February, the X-Men return to the big screen in Dark Phoenix, which will then be followed by The New Mutants in August.
