Bryan Singer says ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ is the ‘biggest film’ he’s ever made, confirms Richard Nixon appearance

While promoting his next film, Jack the Giant Slayer, director Bryan Singer says his new X-Men film will be the biggest project of his career.

During an interview with Collider, Singer confirmed the April start date.

X-Men cast photo“I start shooting April 15th in Montreal, probably until October.  It’s a big movie.  It’ll be the biggest movie I’ve ever made.”

The director went on to confirm that he’ll be shooting the film in native 3D but not in 48 frames per second (or “high frame rate”), and talked a bit about adapting such a beloved comics arc.

“Well you have to capture the essence of those stories, and if you try to do every single detail that’s in this story, that can be too much for a movie.  But if you can grab the essence of that story and those characters, and then realize it’s a movie it’s not a comic book so there are certain parameters that are different, it’ll still be satisfying to fans and non-fans.”

Previous reports pegged the film’s timeline as taking place in the 1970s, and Singer confirmed this fact while also revealing that Richard Nixon is a character in the film.

“Part of it takes place in the 1970s.  And Richard Nixon’s in it, that’ll be an interesting casting choice…  There’ll also be some more science-fiction-type aspects to the story and, without giving it away, some technology that we haven’t seen yet in the X-Men universe.”

X-Men: Days of Future Past comes to theaters July 18, 2014.
