Jane Goldman Working on X-Men: First Class

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.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
