X-MEN FIRST CLASS Gets A New Writer

Last week, Bryan Singer announced that he had signed a deal with 20th Century Fox that will see him returning to the X-Men franchise to helm the prequel film X-Men: First Class. Fox must be wanting to get this film into the pipeline fairly quickly, as they’ve already hired a new writer to help Singer get the project’s screenplay in to shape. That writer is Jamie Moss, who previously scripted Street Kings and had worked on the aborted live-action Ghost In The Shell.

The OC creator Josh Schwartz penned the first draft of the film. Based on the X-Men comics miniseries First Class, it focuses on the founding of the X-Men team and their secret identity as students at Professor Xavier’s Academy for Exceptional Students.
