Sure you can go out and raise your own money, and make an independent film, and hope to cash in big.
OR, you can roll your success on a known property into a larger contract to do a sequel, and if it’s a lot of fun, why not?
These are the fictional things that I assume went through Matthew Vaughn’s head as he contemplated returning to the sexy mutant sixties featured in X-Men: First Class.
When talking about the upcoming year for the 20th Century Fox film studio on Deadline.com, they dropped the news that Vaughn will return to the rebooted franchise, and that thankfully, Vaughn is the future, not Ratner, Charles. Simon Kinberg will write the script, and Bryan Singer will produce again.
