Jennifer Lawrence to star in `Mystique` film

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, reportedly.

"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.
