Matthew Vaughn Confirmed For X-Men First Class Sequel
Deadline confirms that Matthew Vaughn has signed to direct the sequel to X-Men First Class. I assume that with news that the sequel could end up shooting sometime this year. Simon Kinberg has written a script but it's expected Vaughn and his writing partner Jane Goldman will do their own rewrites. The cast including James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender will return as it was apart of their original contracts. Also, Bryan Singer is returning as the film's producer. I just hope that Fox doesn't rush the production and post-production. Giving the sequel a longer shoot and bigger effects budget.
