X-Men writer/producer Simon Kinberg signs a new deal with Fox

December 6th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Simon Kinberg and his Genre Films banner have signed a new three year first-look deal at 20th Century Fox.

Kinberg co-wrote X-Men: The Last Stand, produced X-Men: First Class, is heavily involved with next year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past and also the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot as both writer and producer. The new deal lets him continue to expand those franchises into full-blown universes, with the hope of adapting the Marvel model for Fox:

“I have a lot of ideas on how to built those brands and do what everybody is thinking of these days: Be like Marvel. I want to be able to build stories over multiple movies.”
