McKellen Eyes X-Men Spin-off


Sir Ian McKellen is hoping to star in a new X-Men movie featuring his character Magneto.

The comic book series has already produced three major action films and a spin-off picture - X-Men Origins: Wolverine starring Hugh Jackman, which is due for release next year.

McKellen has revealed that film bosses are already looking over a script for a possible Magneto movie.

And he hopes it will be rewritten to give him a bigger part - as he was the first actor to bring the character to life.

He says, "I think it's a very good series. There is a script knocking around for a spin-off, but it will be a younger Magneto, so if I were involved it would just be topping and tailing the story."
