Simon Kinberg who is writer and producer behind Fox’s hallowed X-Men franchise is speculated to be the top contender among others to direct the next franchise of X-men.
However, both studio and Simon are tight-lipped about any such revelations and are not commenting anything in publicly. But, if reports are to be believed both sides have been planning for the same for few months.
Kinberg has been involved with the X-Men series as a writer-producer capacity.
The Last Stand, and has turned out to be a standout amongst the most essential players in the X-Men realistic universe, having his hands in the main X-Men series, incipient spinoff franchise Deadpool, the new (and keep going for Hugh Jackman) Wolverine film, Logan, and even TV projects Legion.
Kinberg written the script for the new X-Men motion picture, which is to catch up 2016’s fan-drubbed however cash making X-Men: Apocalypse. Thunderings of him assuming control started surfacing a year ago, however the script was all the while being chipped away at. Collider on Tuesday put those thunderings out beyond any confining influence.
Another X-Men film represents an intriguing test for the studio: Actors Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Nicholas Hoult wrapped up their three-pic manages a year ago’s entrance, so new arrangements will be fundamental on the off chance that anybody is plotting an arrival.
Also, returns are surely being plotted out, in any event for a few, as indicated by sources.
On paper, Kinberg has never directed a motion picture, and some ponder whether a studio will give somebody a chance to make a helming debut on a substantial scale, $150 million or more film. In any case, there’s a flip side to this: Kinberg is not just a veteran maker who feels comfortable around a set, yet he has executive experience having ventured into, um, “oversee” preparations. Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four is one case, and Apocalypse is another.
