James Franco’s X-Men Spin-Off ‘Multiple Man’ May End Up Being Rated R

Nov 28, 2017

Earlier this month it was revealed that James Franco is developing yet another X-Men spin-off property based on the anti-hero Multiple Man. The character appeared briefly in X-Men: The Last Stand played by Eric Dane. However, James Franco has now confirmed he is working on an X-Men property with longtime producer Simon Kinberg. Also, teases a possible hard R rating like Deadpool and Logan beforeĀ  it:

“I do have a superhero that I am developing. I don’t know how much I can say. But I will say I am producing and performing in it. It’s early stages. I think probably what I can say is, like anything, there’s a need to develop more. Our bottom line MO is, how can we push this into new ground? A little bit, but still make it entertaining? [But] what I love about what Simon Kinberg and Fox and the X-Men people have done with Deadpool and Logan, it took a while to get there, maybe 10 years, but they are going to go hard R. And we’re going to take this superhero thing and really just push it into a new genre. So we’re working with Simon Kinberg on an X-Men property.”

It seems Fox really likes making their spin-off X-Men films to lean towards an R-rating. It’s unknown if The New Mutants or Gambit will also end up being rated R but it is not out of the question at this point.
