rogueFinally, we seem to have some confirmation about Anna Paquin’s appearance in the next installment of the X-Men Movies: , X-Men: Days of Future Past.  It appears that she will be in the film after all.  While we don’t see her in the latest trailer below, her name is on the credits (see the screencap below):

In December, director Bryan Singer told  Entertainment Weekly that the Anna “won’t appear” in the superhero sequel after the only action sequence involving her character Rogue had to be cut from the film. Singer explained that in the editing process, he discovered the sequence was “extraneous” to the story. “Unfortunately, it was the one and only sequence Anna Paquin was in, the Rogue character was in,” Singer said. “Even though she’s in the materials and part of the process of making the film, she won’t appear in it.”

That sequence may not have survived, but it turns out, Rogue has. After noticing Paquin’s name was conspicuously present in the credits following the newest trailer for the film released late Tuesday, a rep for 20th Century Fox has confirmed to BuzzFeed that Paquin is back in the film. “Essentially, [it’s] a cameo,” the rep said.

With a storyline that jumps from the near future to 1970s America, X-Men: Days of Future Past is the most ambitious movie in the 14-year-old, now seven-film franchise, incorporating actors from the original film trilogy like Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, and Halle Berry, as well as Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, and Jennifer Lawrence from the 2011 prequel X-Men: First Class. With so many characters to service in a feature-length running time, it is understandable that Singer and screenwriter Simon Kinberg (X-Men: The Last Stand) would have difficulty working every single X-Men character into the film. In Paquin’s case, apparently, they were ultimately able to conjure the screen time.

The promo is below, unfortunately we don’t see Rogue in the video except for the credits.

It was reported that Anna Paquin’s character of “Rogue” had been cut from the upcoming film, X-Men: Days of Future Past. However, recently rumors have been flying about indicating that it may have only been her major scene that was cut and she still might appear in the film.

We remember that some months ago Bryan Singer mentioned she was going to be in the movie in some way.  Also, since she’s credited in all the trailers they have been releasing in the last few days and and, there are promotional photos of her, we suggest that the rumors of her appearance in the film just may be true.  However, feel free to come to your own conclusion.

Below is a picture from the new X-Men: Days of Future Past; featuring Anna Paquin’s Rogue, Wolverine, Beast and Bishop. Many are now speculating that Anna will be seen in the film.

The film is set for release on May 23rd, so we’ll certainly know by then.  

Keep thinking positive thoughts Anna fans!

In a recent trip to New Zealand with his play “An Iliad” Denis O’Hare was interviewed by lumiere.net.nz  about his one man play and his latest projects such as his role  in the award winning film, Dallas Buyer’s Club.

Anna Paquin, Denis O'Hare and Stephen Moyer

Back in October, when Stephen Moyer attended the premiere of CASM’s film, Free Ride at the HIFF (Hamptons International Film Festival), he reported about the other projects that his production company, CASM is working on. One he mentioned, was a film CASM was going to produce for Denis O’Hare, from the script Denis wrote about his sister’s suicide. During this interviewer, Denis was also asked about other work and he spoke about the project Stephen had mentioned at HIFF saying that right now they are, “working on a deal.

AB: I’m interested in your own projects as a writer. You mentioned you approached Hoffman about one?

DO: It’s a movie I’m making with Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, who have a production company. I met them on True Blood. I wrote a movie about my sister’s suicide. It’s a weird road movie where my family and I had to go and figure out why she killed herself. We had to collect her life, pack up her life from this rental apartment she had in Missouri. Anna and Stephen loved the script and so we’re working out a deal right now where Stephen would direct. I would be in it. I wanted Philip for one of the parts. I think I’ll try to go to Paul Giamatti who’s a friend of mine and who I love and think is a great actor. We hope to make it next year. We’re just trying to figure out financing; who’s going to make it and all that. It’s a double whammy. I get to make a film I want to make, and I get to work with my friends who I love, Stephen and Anna.

As he explains, the company is still seeking funding for the project, so there isn’t yet any indication about it’s future yet, but stay tuned because we’ll be sure to post more information here as we learn more.

Anna Paquin Mentioned in X-Men Set Visit Interviews

Posted by Lynnpd On February - 20 - 2014

Anna Paquin in the character of Rogue on the Empire Magazine coverCollider has just published about their visit to the set of the new X-Men film, “Days of Future Past.” Anna Paquin as the character, “Rogue” is mentioned several times.  The rumors are still alive that Anna’s part hasn’t been cut from the film, but so far the only confirmation  we have been able to confirm is that we will get to see her on the DVD.

You may remember, we first reported that Anna’s appearance in the film had been cut from the final version, and then later, when the series of character magazine cover were released, and there was one of Anna, raising lots of speculation that the character would be restored to the film and definitely on the DVD.

Now, here’s more talk about her from the Collider’s set visit. Since they don’t talk about her in the ‘past tense’ in these snippets, there still could be hope for her being in the theatrical release, but we still don’t know for sure. Stay tuned as we will report it, if things change.

Director, Bryan Singer has a very cute quote about Anna’s personality through the years.

INGER: Like with the actors? Like their habits?

SINGER: Yeah there are some things. There’s nothing I try to avoid with them because we want to try new things and do things we haven’t done before, we don’t just want to repeat scenes from X-Men 1 and 2. But there’s definitely a short hand…..Personalities hadn’t changed at all, personalities toward me haven’t changed at all, particularly Anna Paquin who teases me. Like when she was 17/18 on those early films, I was her verbal punching bag, and then I would torture her by blowing off horns and firing guns sound effects in the middle of scenes and stuff. Now she’s like a thirty year old mother and she’s going at me, so it’s the same thing…

And, in the interview with Producer Simon Kinberg:

We heard there were a lot of time constraints with certain actors, like Halle Berry was only available for two days, or Anna Paquin for a week, is that something that you knew going into writing the script, or was that last minute adjustments?

KINBERG: …And then, once the schedules and the contracts got done, and I knew what I’d have, especially Anna and Halle for, I did adjust the script for their schedules. But not much for Anna ….

Well, it’s a good sign that they don’t talk about Anna in the past tense, fingers crossed.

Anna Paquin’s Rogue may still be in the New X-Men Movie

Posted by Lynnpd On January - 30 - 2014

rogueIt looks like the rumors might be true that Anna Paquin will indeed be in the new X-Men: Days of Future Past. When the cover of Anna on Empire magazine came out earlier this week, the rumors that she might still be in the film went crazy.

In fact, the most popular response to the X-Men: Days Of Future Past cover reveals on Twitter was, “OMG!” Only slightly less popular was, “Wait, how come Rogue gets an Empire cover when she’s not in the movie any more?“ Inside the issue - on shelves now - director Bryan Singer and writer Simon Kinberg shine a little more light on the situation.

Read an excerpt below:

It was one real sequence in the movie,” explains Kinberg. “We felt like it was taking tension out of the main story drive.

This is the sole scene Singer revealed he had cut from the film during the editing process a month ago, much to the chagrin of fans who wanted to see more of Anna Paquin’s touchy mutant, especially as she is apparently a survivor of the Sentinel apocalypse along with Ian McKellen’s Magneto, Patrick Stewart’s Professor X, Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine and the rest.

It does not mean that we won’t see her in the film,” Singer adds, enigmatically. “Also, I hope to make the sequence available on the DVD as she was quite wonderful in it. She is an important part of the X-Men family. I ‘m very pleased she will remain as one of Empire’s anniversary covers.

The most important thing to note there is that, “it does not mean that we won’t see her in the film.” Presumably, even with Rogue’s key scene removed, the character will have a background role of some capacity.
