I don't like jumping to conclusions, but the fact that he wrote X3 has me a tad worried. I liked Sherlock Holmes, but I don't think he's right for the X-men universe.

The problem is, a lot of fanboys liked X-3 because of all the ******** fanboy service. Throwing in all these extra characters just to have them in the movie does not make a good X-men movie. I just hope he is the initial writer and they do rewrites later.

Who knows, maybe he might surprise us this time, and for all I know, maybe it was Ratner who failed at adapting the screenplay since I never read those.

I just hope Vaughn and the same cast return.

Yeah, you're right. But the fact he's written so many other tepid movies doesnt bode well.

I think Vaughn will come back, he seems interested. I read about that idea he had for Magneto being responsible for the Kennedy asassination because he took the credit for solving the missile crisis at the end of FC. That immediately sounds cooler than anything that happened in friggin' Jumper...

I remember reading about that too and would love to see how he would pull that off.

I'm hoping he's just writing the 1st draft and another writer will take a pass at it. I don't trust him writing this alone. lol

Hopefully Vaughn will bring Goldman in for a revised script before he films.

I didn't know he wrote Sherlock Holmes, I thought the writing in that movie was pretty darn good.

I doubt his script will be the final draft though, don't see Vaughn going to film without his trusted partners Goldman, etc to rewrite.

I doubt that they didn't call Singer, he produced the first one and will probably be producing this one as well.

It's still way to early to know who will even be involved in writing the final project.

They have to have a script to move forward, just like they had the Jaimie Moss script for FC in order to give the execs an idea of what they had in mind and how much it would cost/involve.

Man I thought I would be thrilled when news of a sequel came about.
Why the HELL would FOX hire the guy who contributed to the REASON PEOPLE DIDN'T GO SEE FIRST CLASS? Surely they're aware that despite financial success it was a huge bomb with everyone who went to go see it.

I'm with you SuperT. I cannot see Vaughn allowing someone to write the whole script for him. Like it's been said, when he got the script for First Class he read it and was like "yeah so about rewrites, it's cool if I rewrite everything, right?"
Brink back Stentz and Miller

I'm noticing a pattern with this guy. It seems like the quality of his screenplays is dependent on whoever is directing the film.

He wrote X-Men: The Last Stand, which was directed by Brett Ratner, and that ended up being bad.

But, he wrote Sherlock Holmes, which was directed by Guy Ritchie, and that ended up being pretty good.

So, if my math is right, Simon Kinberg + Matthew Vaughn = Pretty Good Screenplay?

Not to mention that Simon Kinberg was a producer on X-Men: First Class, and we know how that turned out.

I'm willing to give this guy another chance. If he does good, then good. If he does bad, then we probably won't hear about him again. It's a win-win situation.

I'm thinking that as Jason Flemyng first revealed that they're writing the script he's probably been told by Vaughn. Vaughn is probably involved in some capacity as he'll probably produce/direct the sequel.

In the behind the scenes documentary Kinberg said he emailed Vaughn about First Class after seeing Kick-Ass, so they'll already be in contact about this.

I've been vocal about my desperate need for news of an XFC sequel...I never thought I would go from such a high to such a low so quickly.

Agreed. I loved that movie - it was my favorite from 2009 - and that's the only thing giving me hope right now.

Please let this be true! *prays* Vaughn must return. As long as he's involved I can have confidence in the quality of the sequel.

I guess they have to start somewhere, though I wish it would have been with someone else. If Vaughn returns to direct, however, I'm not too worried about it. With this news, I'm curious to know just how quickly Fox is looking to put a First Class sequel into theaters. Perhaps a year after The Wolverine? Summer 2014?

Summer 2014 sounds about right to me. And with that more extended timeline they can also give Vaughn a much lengthier production time. Anything to entice him back. I know FOX wants him back, I just really really hope HE wants to come back for it. Who would have thought that sequel news could be so disheartening?
