X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Set To Start Shooting In April
While we wait for some new cast additions, the sequel to X-Men: First Class titled X-Men: Days of Future Past is still moving forward as planned, despite Matthew Vaughn exiting the director's chair. Bryan Singer, who launched the X-Men franchise to the big screen in 2000, as well as producing the 2011 film, will step in to helm the next chapter. According to The Geek Files, principal photography will commence in April, which gives the studio and everyone else involved plenty of time to deliver a worthy follow-up.
"The next X-Men film is to start filming in April 2013, the Coventry Telegraph has exclusively learned. X-Men: Days of Future Past was initially due to shoot in January but writer/producer Simon Kinberg had recently referred, in more general terms, to production getting under way sometime in the spring."

X-Men: Days of Future Past is based on a classic comic book storyline, which deals "with a dystopian alternative future in which mutants are incarcerated in internment camps." The arc also features the Sentinels, who rule the United States.
