In an interview with IGN, filmmaker Bryan Singer was asked the inevitable about the next cinematic chapter of the X-Men, and in course confirmed the previously discussed rumor that the plot, and title of the film, will be based on the seminal Days of Future Past storyline from Uncanny X-Men.
“It’s called Days of Future Past, and it deals with aspects of that comic, but also some very new things,” Singer told the interviewer.
Singer then confirmed that the film is currently being written and will start shooting in a couple of months. He also talked about how the film might also blend a combination of cast members from the initial X-Men trilogy and the rebooted First Class.
Singer also talked about the possibility of getting behind the camera again for an X-Men movie, and although he says he’s happy in his role as producer right now, he hasn’t ruled it out.
