April 8th, 2012 by bash 1 Comment

The sequel to X-Men: First Class is to start shooting next January, Heat Vision is reporting.

The decision to start work in nine months ensures there is no conflict over Jennifer Lawrence with Lionsgate over the filming of The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire.

The trade says that was filming on the Matthew Vaughn-directed follow-up was to begin this autumn, however this would have conflicted with Lawrence’s Catching Fire, a movie Lionsgate is targeting for an August-September start date.

Lawrence will reprise her role of Mystique and is expected to be joined again by the likes of James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, January Jones, Nicholas Hoult, Caleb Landry Jones and Lucas Till.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
