It appears that FOX will not be developing a rumored Hellfire TV series, but the studio does, however, have another Marvel project in the works. Instead, FOX has joined with Marvel to release a new X-Men pilot.

The yet-to-be-titled project will be written and executive produced by Matt Nix (Burn Notice) and will center around two ordinary parents who discover their children possess mutant powers. Forced to run due to being targeted by the government, the family in turn links with an underground network of mutants with hopes of survival.

“Developing a Marvel property has been a top priority for the network–and we are so pleased with how Matt Nix has led us into this thrilling universe,” said Madden FOX Network. “There’s comic book adventure, emotional and complicated relationships, and a rich, existing mythology from which to draw. With the brilliant production crew behind this project, it has all the makings of a big, fun and exciting new series.”

The forthcoming series will be produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Marvel Television, with 20th Century Fox handling physical production.

Stay tuned for more on FOX’s new X-Men television series.

Fans of X-Men can also look forward to the next movie being set in the ’90s.
