When Does X-Men: Days of Future Past Start Production?

Just last week, it was announced that Matthew Vaughn had stepped down from X-Men: Days of Future Past and original X-Men director Bryan Singer would be returning behind the camera for the film.

Long before this was announced, the target start date for the film was set to be January of 2013, but it appears that might have changed. The Geek Files is reporting that the film will begin principal photography in April of 2013. Director Singer tweeted earlier this week:

"Well here goes. Beginning full prep on Xmen Days of Future Past. Very excited!"

Given the amount of pre-production needed on a film of this scale, a spring 2013 start date would make sense, but the studio has not confirmed the production date for the movie, so treat it as rumor for now.

Scheduled for release on July 18, 2014, X-Men: Days of Future Past boasts a script by Simon Kinberg and is said to be inspired Chris Claremont and John Byrne's comic book storyline that ran in Uncanny X-Men #141 and 142 back in 1981. "Days of Future Past" introduced the idea of an alternate future for Marvel's mutants that grew out of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants killing an important senator, leading to a future where all mutants are hunted by Sentinels.

Singer produced First Class alongside Vaughn and Vaughn will remain aboard the new film as producer himself.
