Donner Hoping for X-Men: First Class Franchise

ON

“X-Men” franchise producer Lauren Shuler Donner talked about possible spin-off X-Men: First Class on Fox Movie Channel’s “Life after Film School.”

“It is the first class of Xavier’s school, way back when, so it’s young Scott, young Jean, young Beast and that’ll be really fun,” Donner said. “I think (the plan) is to follow some of the characters into their own stories, and weave them back into the X-Men world.

“And hopefully ‘First Class’ will become its own franchise and we can follow them as they grow up.”

She also said that a Magneto movie remains in development.
