X-Men First Class - Release Date Set
According to Variety online, Matthew Vaughn is set to direct the next installment of X-Men, a prequel entitled "First Class." The LA Times reports that "the movie basically hits reset on the franchise by going back to the twentysomethings who became the superheroes we later knew."
The film is scheduled to start shooting this summer and is planned for release next summer (June 2011). Summer schedule is already looking packed for next summer with another Mission Impossible and Pirates of the Caribbean, plus Thor all set to release around the same time.
Any thoughts on casting? I'm hoping for some unknowns myself...
It's all moving so quickly! Bets on when we'll see a trailer? Thanksgiving, maybe? Xmas?
