Yes, the X-Men movie franchise is continuing, but instead of the big name characters, 20th Century Fox is leaning toward the younger X-kids seen in the previous movies.  This isn’t necessarily a bad thing considering it means we could get a movie centered around Rogue, Angel, Colossus, Jubilee and Shadowcat.

To further cement the idea that his is the way the studio is leaning, it’s hired Josh Schwartz – creator of the Gossip Girl series – to write the screenplay.  The deal gave Schwartz the option of directing, but he declined the offer.

    Interesting. The credentials aren’t inspiring for me though. I tried to watch an episode of “Gossip Girls” and then my eyes started bleeding.

    To be fair, I did wiki “Gossip Girl” and scrolled to the review. I got through the first sentence and had to turn away.

    “Serena, not welcomed by her best friend Blair Waldorf who has assumed the queen bee position in the Constance Billard junior class, comes back from her mysterious disappearance to boarding school in Connecticut. Meanwhile, Blair and Nate Archibald’s relationship goes sour…”

    I’ve voluntarily watched all the “Bring It On”s and every Sandra Bullock movie, and to flinch this quickly is not a good sign for me. I’m not ruling out it would be good though – people can write more than one way.

    Great. X-Men 90210. Why, Marvel, why?
