Days of Future Past will be my biggest movie ever: Singer

February 13th, 2013 by Marc Comments

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.”

X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in July 2014

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
