Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

“The wife is away writing X-Men 4, so I am off to bed with little Sweeney alone.”

Jonathan Ross's Twitter there, which pretty much confirms that Jane Goldman - aka Mrs Ross - is writing the screenplay for X-Men: First Class. The prequel, directed by Matthew Vaughn, will focus on the whole Charles Xavier-Erik Lehnsherr love story, with Xavier founding his School For Gifted Freaks - sorry, Youngsters - and it's no surprise that the Kick-Ass director wanted Goldman on board.

Partly because she wrote Kick-ass with him. But also partly because they wrote Stardust together. And also partly because she has pink hair. How can this not work? Probably best not to answer that one and just go with mindless optimism.
