Empire Magazine http://movieweb.com/x-men-first-class-empire-cast-photos/revealed new cast photos from X-Men: First Class in its latest issue, which we http://movieweb.com/x-men-first-class-empire-cast-photos/showed you just minutes ago. That same issue also features an interview with producer Lauren Shuler Donner, who reveals that X-Men 4 and X-Men 5 are currently in development, and that Deadpool has an R rated script packed full of comedy.
Apparently, X-Men: First Class is kicking off a series that will run congruent with the continuation of the original X-Men franchise, with X-Men 4 picking up and continuing the storyline of 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand. The storyline of that film will then lead directly into X-Men 5.
The producer went onto talk about the long gestating Deadpool, which Lauren Shuler Donner claims has an R rated screenplay at this time. She is also calling it a "reboot" of the character we saw in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, though Ryan Reynolds is still set to reprise the role.
"It's a total reboot. We're either going to pretend that X-Men Origins: Wolverine didn't happen, or mock it, which he could do. It's insane, it's definitely comedy. But it's an R script, it's really irreverent and violent. Right away, we're out of the X-Men world. He's very involved, Ryan Reynolds. He's working with the writers on the screenplay and it is as much his as it is ours. I'm tellin' ya, it's true to the comic. You'll see all of them. You'll see Wade Wilson, the good-looking Ryan Reynolds! You'll see Deadpool in his costume and you'll see the cancer-scarred face.We're looking for a director."
"It will have depth and a dramatic backbone. And yet there's more action in this one than in any one we've ever done. It's such a good script. We have the great Christopher McQuarrie writing and it's very true to the Japanese saga. This is Logan on his own..."
