The screenwriter of the movie Kick-Ass is staying in the realm of comic books and writing the screenplay for X-Men: First Class. The fourth movie in the X-Men franchise is set to be written by Jane Goldman, reports NME.com.
The movie will feature another Kick-Ass team member, as Matthew Vaughn, who directed the film, is also set to direct X-Men: First Class. The duo also worked together on the fantasy film Stardust.
Goldman is “Away writing X Men 4,” her husband, Jonathan Ross, tweeted. After he answered a few questions such as when the film will be released (to which he said “Next summer,”), he then tweeted: “I am afraid I better not answer any more queries re X-Men: First Class for fear of spoilers and also possible divorce. Thank you.”
X-Men: First Class is apparently going to be a prequel to the other X-Men movies, and will concentrate on the relationship between Xavier and Magnto (played by Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen, respectively, in the previous films), as well as the founding of the Mutant School, according to Bryan Singer, the original X-Men director. Singer, who had previously laid out the film’s plotline, was set to direct the film himself but was has ended up just as producer because it was all his schedule would allow.
Teenagers will direct Usher’s new video. The singer will let young directors between the ages of thirteen to eighteen shoot his latest video.
For those interested, just log onto Got-Noise.com and apply for the contest, which is sponsored by the Body by Milk campaign. Those who are selected by the contest will have the chance to go to Los Angeles to work in one of two teams in March.
Both teams will have to come up with an original concept for Usher’s video within one week. And in case you were wondering, Usher will be there, offering his advice to each team.
Usher said in a statement, “I am so excited to be the first artist involved with the Body by Milk/ Got Noise music video program, as it gives me another way to give back, inspire young people and also reinvent music videos.”
The two videos will debut in April, when fans will vote on the winner. The winning team will receive prizes including tickets to an Usher concert, Apple laptops and editing software.
