Famke Janssen talks ‘Hansel & Gretel,’ says she’s ready to return for ‘X-Men Days of Future Past’

While promoting her role in the new film “Hansel & Gretel,” Famke Janssen addresses the possibility of her inclusion in the next X-Men film, which is titled “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”

“If you run into Bryan Singer, just tell him I’ve been sitting by the phone, I’ve been hearing rumors of all these people getting cast; what about me?  I’m waiting…”

When asked about the role in “Hansel& Gretel: Witch Hunters” and how that’s different than a role, like Jean, Janssen explains.

“With the X-Men, Bryan Singer was very clear we need to base this in reality. We’re not going to be making the regular superhero movie everybody else has been making up to now. These are just regular people with regular problems. And that’s how we played it. I think with a fairy tale like Hansel and Gretel there’s a little bit of a tongue-in-cheek element to it. It’s not your usual serious everything-is-grounded-in-reality. But you want to always make everything personal. You want to have an audience member be able to connect in some way to this massive prosthetic makeup.”

“Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters” opens in theaters on January 25, 2013 and “X-Men: Days of Future Past” opens July 18, 2014.
