Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First class was one of my favorite films of this past summer. Talk of a sequel has been going on since before the film was even released, but now we have a little bit of confirmation. Jason Flemyng,(Azazel) has confirmed in a recent interview that the studio is working on the script for a sequel.
Here is what he had to say:
"There was a benchmark that they had to hit box office-wise before they could start writing the next one, which they've started. We'll just see how the DVD goes and then fingers crossed I'll be bright red again by next summer."
Blu-ray and DVD sales in the U.S. have been doing well, so it is safe bet they will continue to do well now that it's released in the UK. We will let you know when an official announcement on the sequel is made. I for one, would love to see this happen soon. What are your thoughts?
