HITFIX have reported that Jane Goldman is now working on a new X-Men film which is mostly likely to be X-Men: First Class following the recent announcement of Matthew Vaughn being hired to direct, for more on that check out Darran’s article.
Goldman has collaborated with Matthew Vaughn previously on both Kick Ass and Stardust making it a seemingly logical progression to bring her in on the new X-Men film. They have proven themselves a winning team in the past so things are looking positive for the new instalment in the franchise.
The X-Men franchise got off to a great start with X-Men, which was followed up by the superb X-Men 2 before the quality fell away somewhat with the troubled X-Men 3 and finally the disappointing but financially high performing X-Men Origins: Wolverine. With the recent announcements in regards to X-Men: First Class things are looking optimistic for a return to form for the series.
