From Heat Vision, we learn that Twentieth Century Fox plans on shooting its X-Men: First Class sequel in January. This will avoid any conflicts with Jennifer Lawrence’s shooting schedule for the Lionsgate filming of The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire.
Heat Vision reports that Fox was planning on filming the “X-Men” follow-up this fall,which would have conflicted with the next Hunger Games film. Had fox not moved shooting, however, Fox would have won out considering the studio would have been able to exercise the sequel option on her contract, which she signed before her “Hunger Games” deal.
Lawrence will reprise her role of Mystique. Also expected on the set, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, January Jones, Nicholas Hoult, Caleb Landry Jones and Lucas Till.
