X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST - Bryan Singer Talks 3D and Story

While Bryan Singer is out promoting his film Jack The Giant Slayer, he continues to discuss his plans for his next film, X-Men: Day of Future Past. First of all, the director confirms that he'll be shooting the next X-Men film in 3D, instead of post-converting it, which is a plus. This what he told Cinema Blend...

I'll probably use some of the motion-capture technology for certain things [in Days of Future Past]. And of course the 3D technology. I'll be shooting native stereo on X-Men.

3D is just the thing big tent pole films are doing right now, and at this point it's not going away. Hollywood is making too much money from it. I don't really have a problem with it if it's done right. Shooting the movie in 3D is of course a step in the right direction. Singer goes on to talk about coming back to the franchise with comingsoon, and explains a little bit about what he's planning for the story.

I wrote the story for ‘First Class' and produced it so this is a chance to not do a sequel to ‘First Class' or a sequel to ‘X-Men 3' but to do both I guess in a way. In ‘Days of Future Past' the story structure is a fantastic way to do that.

It's an origin story. I always had an idea in my mind of the history between Professor X and Magneto and ‘First Class' was a chance to explore that history. I think we've done a decent job in the developing the script (for 'Days of Future Past') and maintaining that continuity.

It's going to be very cool to see the relationship of a young Professor X and Magneto continue to take shape in this sequel. He then reveals that he's never met with Mark Millar, and discusses how his involvement affects him,  

I think he's working with Fox to look at some other stuff. I guess they're trying to figure stuff out. I have my own thoughts about stuff like that. ‘X-Men: First Class' is part of that, this will be part of that but we'll see. But perhaps he and I will discuss that in the future. I'm just really focused on this movie at the moment.

As you know, Singer is also attached to develop a big screen adaptation of Battlestar Galactica. When asked about where that project currently stands he replied,

I have that one on hold for a moment, so hopefully, I'd love to be able to get back to that, but for now I'm just focused on this X-Men business.

The movie will be released on July 18th, 2014, and I'm sure it's going to turn out being everything we want to see and more.
