‘X-Men’ Marvel TV Dramas Set: FX Orders ‘Legion’ Pilot, Fox Developing ‘Hellfire’

In a two-project kinbergagreement between Marvel and Fox Networks Group, FX and Fox are moving ahead with two TV dramas set in the world of X-Men, both executive produced by the film franchise’s director, Bryan Singer, producer Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg as well as Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory. FX has given a pilot order to Legion, written/executive produced by Fargo creator Noah Hawley, while Fox has closed deals to develop the long-rumored Hellfire (working title), created by Evan Katz (24: Live Another Day), Manny Coto (24), Patrick McKay (Star Trek 3) and JD Payne (Star Trek 3).

Neither series has the X-Men branding though both are set in the same universe and both stem from 20th Century Fox’s Marvel deal for the rights to the X-Men franchise, which has spawned 11 movies, including several that are in the pipeline. The deals expand Marvel’s live-action TV footprint, adding to the company’s two existing series and a pilot at ABC and four series and a limited series at Netflix.

Legion introduces the story of David Haller: Since he was a teenager, David has struggled with mental illness. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he’s confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees might be real. He’s based on the Marvel comics character Legion, the son of X-Men founder Charles Xavier (played by Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy in the films), first introduced in 1985.

Hawley will write the pilot and serve as an executive producer with Shuler Donner, Singer, Kinberg, Loeb, Chory, John Cameron (Fargo) and Steve Blackman. The pilot for Legion will be produced by FX Productions and Marvel Television, with FXP handling the physical production.

“Legion is just the sort of ambitious story that Noah excels at,” FX’s Nick Grad said. “His adaption of Fargo for television was one of the most acclaimed television events in recent memory. It’s also an honor to partner with Marvel on Legion and to enlist such an accomplished team of Executive Producers to create this pilot.”

Set in the late 1960s, Hellfire, produced by 20th Century Fox TV and Marvel Television, with 20th Century Fox handling the physical production – follows a young Special Agent who learns that a power-hungry woman with extraordinary abilities is working with a clandestine society of millionaires – known as “The Hellfire Club” – to take over the world. A different version of The Hellfire Club was previously seen as the primary antagonists of X-Men: First Class, led by Kevin Bacon’s Sebastian Shaw.

“We are thrilled to partner with Marvel to bring this world to television and build upon the Fox Logovibrant mythology that has captivated fans for years,” said Fox Entertainment president David Madden. “These powerful and dynamic characters are complicated and larger-than-life, the pace and visual imagination are unrelenting, and the story takes place during one of the most explosive eras in recent history. ”

McKay and Payne will write the pilot script, based on a story by Katz, Coto, McKay and Payne. Shuler Donner, Singer and Kinberg executive produce with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory will executive-produce the pilot, alongside Katz and Coto, who will serve as showrunners.
Could be good. It's unclear from the article if they will connect them to the X-Men or not.

Wonder what Fox gave Marvel in exchange for this.

Maybe one or more of these guys?







EDIT: So nice of them to answer my question so quickly.

Re: X-Men Marvel TV Dramas Set: FX Orders ‘Legion’ Pilot, Fox Developing ‘Hellfire’

Rather interesting choices in material

Always found the Hellfire Club interesting. But a 1960s version? I know a Stark (Iron Man descendant)and a Worthington (Archangel descendant)were early members, but no way Marvel allows a Stark...unless there's a deal in progress...
I liked the version featured in the 90s cartoon. Shaw courting Jean/Phoenix as the new Black Queen. With Emma Frost, Mastermind, and Donald Pierce as other main members. But we'll see...

Legion though? Dont know much about him...

Maybe (And Im hoping) this has something to do with one of the 3 Untitled films for 2020. *crosses fingers*

Give Marvel Galactus and Silver Surfer, that's all I'm asking for.

If they're doing the Hellfire Club kinda hope it has Tessa/Sage and Bogan in there somewhere. And Selene of course. None of the others have ever interested me. But seeing as it's 60s will it be set before or after First Class?

I believe it was in the 60s...so we better get continuity if they're connected. Which was a pretty weird roster though...Shaw, Frost, Azazel, and Riptide. So if it is connected, we better get the same actors involved! Or could be a slight earlier incarnation. But Shaw (Bacon) is a must.

First Class was 1963. So i wonder if this will be set after Shaws death and a new club being formed (as Riptide, Tempest, Azazel and Emma joined Mags) or if it will be Shaws group with the CIA agents and such. And I've kinda never been interested in Dr. Doom if I'm honest :/

Edit- just read the article again and says late 60s. So would be set after the First Class events. Plus as it says power hungry woman with extraordinary powers I'd go with Selene.

Doom ain't for everybody

Good catch though. I just skimmed through the article so didn't catch that. It almost has to be about to Selene then.

One thing I am hoping is an introduction to The Reavers. Would the fuck out for some cyborg mercenaries.
