Matthew Vaughn Will Return to Direct the X-MEN: FIRST CLASS Sequel

Back in November, we brought you the news when writer Simon Kinberg (Sherlock Holmes) was hired by 20th Century Fox to pen the forthcoming sequel to the incredibly successful, Matthew Vaughn directed film X-Men: First Class, which starred Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Kevin Bacon, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Caleb Landry Jones and Lucas Till.

Now, Deadline reports that the studio just closed a deal to have Vaughn return to the director’s chair for the follow-up, with Bryan Singer (Jack the Giant Killer) producing once again as well. No production or release dates have been announced for the as yet Untitled X-Men: First Class Sequel.
