"X-Men: First Class" Sequel Hires "X-Men: The Last Stand" Writer

Posted: November 4th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"X-Men: First Class" Sequel Hires "X-Men: The Last Stand" WriterSubmit Comment
Simon Kinberg, the writer of "X-Men: The Last Stand," has been brought on to pen the sequel to "X-Men: First Class," which grossed over $350 million on a $160 million budget.

20th Century Fox has yet announce anything officially, but it is assumed that director Matthew Vaughn and most of the principal cast will return due their multi-picture contracts.

It's unclear whether Kinberg was hired for his "X-Men" expertise or more for his work on such other films as "Mr. and Mrs. Smith," "Jumper," "Sherlock Holmes" and the upcoming "This Means War" and "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter."

As long as it's on par with the first I'll be happy.

All of his scripts are bad, except Sherlock Holmes but that's because he wrote it with Guy Ritchie

If Vaughn is directing sure just no lines like " I'm the Juggernaut bitch ! " f*cking campy .

Off topic Alex if you hear new news on a movie that just got optioned called " Rome , sweet Rome " post updates , thanks MiB.

This HAS to be bad news. Didn't they realise how much everyone hated X Men 3?

The guy who wrote X-Men: The Last Stand is being hired to write X-Men: First Class 2.

That's not great news, I hope Matthew Vaughan and the cast returns for the sequel.

X-Men: First Class is the best X-Men prequel ever.

What X-Men expertise? And those other scripts? Come on...in an X-Men Movie i expect to see some Character developing and not only Action. First Class did a lot of things the right way. Now donīt mess it up by hiring the Guy who f*cked up X-Men before.

I had no problem with The Last Stand. Some underused characters and plot points, but still thoroughly entertaining. I'm sure Kinberg will take from what he's seen and make a fine script.

I loved the story for first class and Fassbender was simply phenomenal, but I am still upset that they didn't reboot with the real first class; Jean Gray, Cyclops, Angel, Beast and Iceman

I hated how rushed First class was, as a movie I enjoyed for what it was but as a fan of the material I really wasnt impressed

So they're making a sequel to a hit movie that was a hit because it had a good director directing good actors from a good script written by good writers with a good director directing good actors from a sh*t script by a sh*t writer (based on his track record).

Isn't that the guy who, along with Brett Shatner, ruined X-Men?

Well, not everything can be color of roses, but this sequel has already flop, with that bastard aboard to write the sequel, you can expect a major let down on theaters.....

I don't understand the love for First Class. Movie was pretty f*cking sub-par in my opinion.
