Collider bagged a cool chat with Bryan Singer about the forthcoming X-Men prequel/sequel, Days of Future Past.
During their chat, the Usual Suspects director confirmed that the film would be shot between April and October this year and that it would be in 3D.
“It’s a big movie. It’ll be the biggest movie I’ve ever made,” Singer said.
Taling a little about adapting such a beloved comics arc, he added: “Well you have to capture the essence of those stories, and if you try to do every single detail that’s in this story, that can be too much for a movie. But if you can grab the essence of that story and those characters, and then realize it’s a movie it’s not a comic book so there are certain parameters that are different, it’ll still be satisfying to fans and non-fans.”
Singer also confirmed that part of the film would be set in the 1970s and that a former US president would be making an appearance: “Part of it takes place in the 1970s,” he continued. “And Richard Nixon’s in it, that’ll be an interesting casting choice… There’ll also be some more science-fiction-type aspects to the story and, without giving it away, some technology that we haven’t seen yet in the X-Men universe.”
