X-Men 4 - First News On Possible New Movie

Variety is reporting that Josh Schwartz (exec producer of Gossip Girl, as well as The O.C. and Chuck) will be writing (and possibly directing) the fourth installment of the film franchise, X-Men: First Class, with plans to "inject a next-gen sensibility into the superhero series," according to Variety.

X-Men: First Class is the name of a best-selling 2006 X-Men limited series and 2007 mini-series imagining the very early adventures of Professor Xavier's first group of mutant students: Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Iceman, Angel, and The Beast. The X-Men sported revamped costumes and the stories included other characters such as Lizard, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Man-Thing, Gorilla-Man, and Thor.

I guess a prequel of sorts is the only way you could really have another X-Men movie (seeing as Brett Ratner killed off Xavier, Cyclops and Jean Grey plus the entire franchise for that matter, with Last Stand...). I wonder though who would play a younger Xavier in the new film? Patrick Stewart would be far too old by that point to play a youthful version... We'll have to wait to see if this is all true, at this point I hope not!
