Matthew Vaughn set to direct ‘X-Men First Class’ sequel

20th Century Fox has finally closed a deal with Matthew Vaughn to direct the ‘X-Men: First Class’ sequel, which will also be produced by Bryan Singer.

Deadline mentions that Vaughn is officially onboard to helm a sequel to First Class in the site’s report on Fox production president Emma Watts signing a new deal, through to 2015.

That article also reiterates previous reports that the screenplay is being penned by Simon Kinberg. That said, it is suspected that Vaughn’s First Class and Kick-Ass co-writer, Jane Goldman, will eventually be brought on to also contribute to the new X-Men flick’s script.

There’s no official production timeline for the First Class sequel just yet, but McAvoy and Fassbender are already locked to reprise their turns as youthful versions of Charles Xavier/Professor X and Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto, respectively. Likewise, Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games) is in line to reprise her turn as Raven/Mystique, as is Singer’s Jack the Giant Killer star Nicholas Hoult as Dr. Hank McCoy/Beast
