On Fox Movie Channel's Life After Film School, X-Men franchise producer Lauren Shuler Donner said she would like to make a franchise out of X-Men: First Class, a spin-off of X-Men.

"It is the first class of Xavier's school, way back when, so it's young Scott, young Jean, young Beast and that'll be really fun," Donner said. "I think (the plan) is to follow some of the characters into their own stories, and weave them back into the X-Men world.

"And hopefully First Class will become its own franchise and we can follow them as they grow up."

Donner also confirmed that X-Men Origins: Magneto is still in development.

Gossip Girl creator Josh Schwartz is penning the script for X-Men: First Class and although he had the option to direct the superhero feature, he opted out.
