AceShowbiz - Tim Pocock has shared an interesting information about "X-Men: First Class". Posting a tweet on Monday, September 14, the actor who portrays teenage Scott Summers aka Cyclops in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" hinted that the "X-Men" prequel could begin shooting after February 2010.
"currently shooting Australian TV series till February 2010...then X-men first class ;)," so the 23-year-old wrote in his Twitter page. The tweet also brought up the possibility that the Australian actor is likely to reprise his mutant role in "First Class". No confirmation nor denial has been disclosed following the brewing speculations.
"X-Men: First Class" reportedly will take its focus on the first class at Xavier's school of the gifted. While many are still kept under tight wraps for this in-development film, "Gossip Girl" creator and executive producer, Josh Schwartz, has been brought aboard to pen the screenplay. Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg will be serving as its producers.
No director has been attached so far. Donner has previously addressed the chance of having director Bryan Singer as future "X-Men" movie director. To Fox Movie Channel's Life After Film School, she said "nothing would please me more than to bring Bryan on for another movie. And, if it's like the first Deadpool or the first Gambit, I think, I mean, I hope he would be interested..."
