We recently announced here that there was some movement on X-Men Origins: Magneto, with a synopsis being released to Production Weekly. Well, now Lauren Shuler Donner, producer behind the X-Men films spoke to Empire Online about the future of X-Men Origins: Magneto, and what the success (or failure) of X-Men Origins: Wolverine might mean for the film.
Donner confirmed that plans for X-Men Origins: Magneto are still in the works, perhaps. "I think first we wanted to make Wolverine, and then David [Goyer, the attached director] took another film, and there wasn't a lot of time," she said. "But I'd like to make that - we'll have to see."
Donner further confirmed that the plot will indeed focus on the early, idealistic days of Charles Xavier and the man who would become Magneto, Eric Lehnsherr. "We have a script on Magneto, which is actually sort of Magneto and Charles Xavier," she said. "It's Erik and Charles in their early, early years."
