'X-Men: First Class' Sequel To Start Shooting January
This wasn't originally the plan for 20th Century Fox but it is now.
20th Century Fox and Lionsgate, the film companies behind the two films, X-Men: First Class and Catching Fire, the next film in The Hunger Games franchise, reached an agreement to push the shooting schedule for X-Men:First Class to January instead of having it shoot in August-September which is when Catching Fire is set to begin production. Apparently, Fox had the option of making Lawrence shoot the X-Men film no matter what but that doesn't seem to be an issue anymore. Nice to see that they don't want to re-cast Mystique.
Matthew Vaughn will be back directing the sequel of X-Men: First Class, while the script is being written by Simon Kinberg.
We can expect a release date for the sequel sometime around late 2013 to early 2014.
