If you stuck around until the very very very end of X-Men III, you know there was a huge door left open for yet another flick. Lauren Shuler Donner talked with the LA Daily News, and in the interviews tells readers they have new characters signed up, but older ones are still in negotiations. With a Wolverine movie scheduled first, it may be a while before we see the X-Men standing together.

“The newer cast members are signed, and the older cast members are not.” Considering the older names involved — Halle Berry, Hugh Jackman, Rebecca Romijn, Famke Janssen and Anna Paquin — that could run into a huge chunk of money.”

All that’s putting the cart before the wolverine, of course, since Hugh Jackman is set to reprise his role as the manicure-challenged mutant superhero in his own film. “Next, we’re going to do ‘Wolverine,’ but not before the end of the year because he’s in the Baz Luhrmann film,” she says of the filmmaker’s untitled Australian epic with Nicole Kidman. However, “We have the script and are working on it.”
