The Hollywood Reporter | Heat Vision: Fox confirms Bryan Singer on 'X-Men: First Class,' hires writer (UPDATED)
Still not sure I'm all on-board for "Teenage Mutants" but the first meating of Prof. X and Magneto = AWESOME.Bryan Singer is returning to Fox for another "X-Men" movie.
Singer, who directed the first two installments before famously jumping ship to make “Superman Returns,” has signed on to develop and direct “X-Men: First Class.”
The studio has tapped Jamie Moss to write the screenplay and work with Singer on the project, which goes back to the drawing board. "Class" was put into development in 2008 as a prequel to the "X-Men" movies, looking at the teenage years of the super-powered mutant heroes seen the “X-Men” movies and the “Wolverine” movie. New characters will also be created.
The story is still in the early stages of development but will deal with the first meeting of Charles Xavier and Magneto and involve the creation of the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning, the school masquerading as the headquarters of the X-Men.
