<i>X-Men</i> Sequel to Shoot in January

In addition to securing The Hunger Games director Gary Ross, Lionsgate had another major worry about Catching Fire, the follow-up to the dystopian blockbuster: a potential scheduling conflict with the sequel to the 2011 surprise hit X-Men: First Class, which had contractual dibs on Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Mystique.

But according to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox will begin shooting X-Men in January, freeing Lionsgate to kick off production in August or September.

Matthew Vaughn will return to direct the sequel to X-Men: First Class, which grossed $353 million worldwide, joined by most of the cast. Simon Kinberg, who wrote X-Men: Last Stand, is penning the screenplay.
