James McAvoy (ATONEMENT, WANTED) has signed on to play a young Charles Xavier, aka Professor X, in “X-Men: First Class,” which Matthew Vaughn is directing for Fox.

Plot synopsis: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, following the classic Marvel mythology, charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga. Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.”

It’s been touch and go for the last week, but KICK-ASS director Matthew Vaughn has been confirmed to helm X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, 20th Century Fox’s prequel to the lucrative franchise based on the Marvel Comics super-team. Not only have they signed Vaughn, directing his third movie in a row based on comic material, but Fox is confident enough in his abilities to set a release date for June 3, 2011, a little less than 13 months from today.

BRYAN SINGER Will Produce ‘X-MEN: FIRST CLASS’ Instead Of Direct – Here’s Why

March 29, 2010

Following up on a previous post that said BRIAN SINGER would direct the next X-MEN movie franchise; ‘X-MEN: FIRST CLASS’:

[Brian] Singer and 20th Century Fox have formalized his move from director to producer on X-Men: First Class. That is the bad news for X-Men die-hards who love the first two films Singer directed. Here’s the good part: he is leaving because Fox liked the script that Jamie Moss wrote from Singer’s treatment so much that the studio wants the film right away, envisioning it as the first leg of a trilogy. The hope is to have it ready for 2011 release.

Singer will join Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg as producers. He’s not available because Warner Bros and Legendary are locked into a summer production start on Jack the Giant Killer. They’ll begin casting shortly. It is a big CG project, and they are likely to either shoot 3D or convert it later.

Twentieth Century Fox has set Bryan Singer to direct “X-Men: First Class,” returning him to the franchise that began with the first two installments of the mutant series.

“This is the formative years of Xavier and Magneto, and the formation of the school and where there relationship took a wrong turn,” Singer said. “There is a romantic element, and some of the mutants from ‘X-Men’ will figure into the plot, though I don’t want to say which ones. There will be a lot of new mutants and a great villain.”

Japan is where we’re heading, [and] we’re starting to work on it now. We’re in the … first steps of developing that story,” Jackman said about adapting Frank Miller and Chris Claremont’s story arc.

THRALL WORLD memo to FOX: Please put money into your SCRIPT this time!! X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE was such absolute shit and it’s a complete shame since here we have the rare occasion where the lead seems to have a genuine LOVE for his character…

Fox has thrown into development a spinoff featuring Deadpool, the wise-cracking mercenary played in the film by Ryan Reynolds.

Reynolds is attached to reprise the character for what for now is simply being called “Deadpool.” Lauren Shuler Donner and Marvel Studios would act as producers.

Read more HERE.

The Deadpool and Gambit scenes were the only thing interesting in the Wolverine movie. Conflicting reports on whether FOX or MARVEL STUDIOS will be producing the movie. With any luck it won’t be FOX whose track record on big budget comic book movies (FANTASTIC FOUR and its sequel, DAREDEVIL, ELEKTRA, X-MEN: THE LAST STAND, LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN) is in the toilet.

Fox and Seed are in development on a sequel to “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” which topped the domestic box office over the weekend.

The Seed partners have begun planning the sequel, which they are squarely focusing on the samurai storyline originated in the comic series, and whose Japanese locale was teased after the film’s final credits.

Read more HERE.

That’ll happen when you rake in $85-87 million in your opening weekend. Wish I was able to recommend the movie but we’re not going to go there. Instead, I suggest hitting the bargain theater for THE WATCHMEN, THE INTERNATIONAL, or just staying home and rewatching BATMAN BEGINS.

Check out some cool new video interviews with Jackman, Liev Schreiber (Sabretooth), Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool), and Taylor Kitsch (Gambit) HERE and an interview with WOLVERINE director Gavin Hood HERE.

‘X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE’ director GAVIN HOOD on working with HUGH JACKMAN:

“He carries the movie and it’s all about how his character is formed and how he comes to lose his memory. So for the first time both he and I were both exploring the emotional history of the character.”

On deciding on which of the billion mutants in the X-Universe to bring in:

“There are certain characters that fans have been clamoring for, the most notable of which is Gambit. Hugh always said they were looking for an opportunity to bring him into the franchise in a way that felt organic and justified and not just bolted on.”

On spawning a possible GAMBIT or DEADPOOL movie:

“‘X-Men 1’ led to ‘X-Men 2’ and if ‘Wolverine’ could lead to another movie, whether it be a Wolverine movie or a Gambit movie, of course that’s good, not only for the studio but for the fans, but it all depends on how people respond to this movie.”
