Storm survived Brett Ratner's "The Last Stand," but a return has yet to be confirmed. [Producer Bryan] Singer said that an appearance from Storm is still up in the air. "I can't say. I don't know yet. And it's not necessarily a deal making aspect at all," he said. "I want to make sure it'll make sense. But I love working with her."

This is great! Even though I've seen almost every one of Pam Grier's films, I actually haven't seen most of them on the big screen, in a theatrical setting (especially the older films), so this is a retrospective I'll make an effort to attend.
