X-Men: First Class might not have made quite as much money as some of the earlier X-Men movies, but it did well enough that Fox is now putting a sequel together, and they’ve hired Simon Kinberg, who wrote the First Class, to pen the script, according to Superherohype.
Kinberg has been involved with a wide range of action films, scripting XXX: State of the Union, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and Sherlock Holmes. He also has credits on upcoming high profile pictures This Means War and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
The X-Men: First Class Sequel is still in early development, but Matthew Vaughn is expected to direct the project and the original cast of James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, January Jones and Jennifer Lawrence are all expected to return.
