The upcoming X-Men film, Days Of Future Past, is pulling cast members from the original X-Men franchise and the recent prequel film First Class for what sounds like an epic adventure. January Jones, however, looks to be like one of those actors who may not be back.
Speaking to Collider at the Sundance Film Festival, Jones did not sound positive that her villainous character of Emma Frost, will be back for the film –
I don’t know that I’m in it, I don’t think Emma’s in this one. Well they haven’t told me if I am (laughs). I wouldn’t put it past them though, I got the script for the first one on the airplane on the way there. It’s called Days of Future Past I think, and I think it’s more about James [McAvoy] and Michael [Fassbender] and then Patrick [Stewart] and Ian [McKellan], and I think it’s gonna go back and forth with those so I don’t think Emma’s in those bits. I don’t know, I really don’t know.
While she is probably leaving herself an out in case she does receive a call from director Bryan Singer, with production on the film scheduled to begin so, I would think that there should have been overtures made to her representatives already.
