Spotted. Josh Schwartz, creator of The OC/Gossip Girl, diligently working on a screenplay for the new “X-Men” movie.
“I’m very well aware that I’ll be bludgeoned by purists, but I love its mythology, and it comes with a pretty hefty paycheck,” Schwartz told Black Book Magazine. “It’s not like I’m adding new characters like Toaster Head, or anything like that. The Hulk looks like it’s going to be terrible. And why does he look like he’s fighting against the monster from Cloverfield? I mean, with Transformers, it’s not like fans were going to come back saying, ‘You used the wrong car.’ This, however, is a different story.”
Details are scarce but it seems that the film will be more of a spinoff/prequel involving other characters at Xavier Institute for Higher Learning. Aside from being mutants, the students will all have access to trust funds and use their powers to obtain booze.
