Jennifer Lawrence to star in 'Mystique' film

"I feel like because Mystique is in such a crowded ensemble, there's so much more opportunity if you were to follow her solo," said 'X-Men' producer Lauren Shuler Donner

Los Angeles: Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence may eventually star in a Mystique spin-off, it has been revealed.

'X-Men' producers Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg have expressed an interest in developing a standalone film for the mutant character, reported Entertainment Weekly.

"There was a regime at the studio that didn't see the worth in spin-offs, and the current people who run Fox understand, embrace it, and we're going to do right by it," said Donner, who has produced every 'X-Men' movie.

"I'd like to do Gambit. I'd like to do Deadpool. We'll see. There's a lot of really great characters."

"I love what Jen Lawrence has done with (Mystique), and I feel like because she is in such a crowded ensemble, there's so much more opportunity if you were to follow her solo," Kinberg said.

Lawrence will star in the latest film 'X-Men: Days of Future Past', which will arrive in UK cinemas on May 22 and in the US on May 23.

The next films in the series will be 'X-Men: Apocalypse' on May 27, 2016, and another 'Wolverine' project on March 3, 2017.
