Fans can expect more Anna Paquin in the 'Rogue Cut' of 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'
With dozens of mutants vying for screentime in this summer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past," many fans were disappointed by the lack of Anna Paquin as Rogue.
Despite being a major character in the franchise's first three films, Paquin's "Future Past" role was reduced to a cameo.
Now, producer Simon Kinberg has announced the upcoming "Rogue Cut" of the film, which will reinstate some ten minutes of the Oscar winner's excised performance into the film, according to Variety.
The extended version of “Days of Future Past” will be released sometime in 2015, most likely in the summer months.
The added scenes will also include other characters, although details have yet to be revealed.
“It’s a big chunk, a substantial part of the movie,” Kinberg told Variety. "We want to give (fans) the fullest picture of the film — behind the camera, and in front of it,” with the “Rogue Cut” and provide “more of the process we went through” to make the film.
“Every movie has scenes that are cut out, but not every movie has scenes cut out with such a beloved character,” he added.
Paquin first played Rogue in 2000's "X-Men," and reprised the role in "X-Men 2" and "X-Men: The Last Stand."
Meanwhile, the theatrical cut of "X-Men: Days of Future Past" will hit DVD and Blu-ray on October 14.
