Rose Byrne updates on X-Men: Days Of Future Past and Insidious 2

Rose Byrne gave Total Film an update on the sequels to two of her biggest hits when we caught up with her to talk about acerbic Brit-com I Give It A Year (keep 'em peeled for the full feature later this week).

X-Men: Days Of Future Past has been hungrily snapping up cast members, with old-guarders Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman clambering aboard Bryan Singer's prequel-sequel with new blood Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Jennifer Lawrence.

Byrne played Moira McTaggart in X-Men: First Class , and, if the comics are anything to go by, her character has plenty of mileage left in the X-movieverse, having significant relationships with Professor X and Banshee.

When we asked if she'd reprise her role in XM:DOFP , Byrne told us:

"I don't know. I would love to be a part of it, but I’ve not heard. I don’t know what they’re planning yet.”

On the topic of the Insidious sequel, Byrne added:

“Well, it’s exciting. It’s all the same team and I’m really proud of that film, I think it’s a really accomplished, scary, great old-school horror film, and I think they’ve seen what really worked in that first one and they just want to make the second one even better.”

I Give It A Year opens in the UK on 8 February 2013. Insidious: Chapter 2 is set to open on 30 August 2013, with X-Men: Days Of Future Past arriving the following year.
