They can definitely give us something new with moving forward with the original cast after DOFP. If they were able to come up with new characters, new villains and new stories for the first 7 films. They definitely can come up with a new story and bring in some new faces for X-Men 5, especially with Bryan Singer involved. And like Lauren Shuler Donner, there's literally hundreds of stories in the comic-books. They wouldn't have a hard time finding their inspiration for the story of the next film.
