Yes, X-Men: First Class is going ahead and yes, Bryan Singer is back to direct (thank you MySpace), but now they have a new writer. What about Josh Schwartz, Mr OC and the man who was once offered the helm himself? Well, it looks like they don't want him anymore. Instead, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Jamie Moss is our scribe, and he looks to be restarting First Class from the ground up.
The writer of Street Kings (that Keanu Reeves cop thriller), Moss will hopefully better that with his adaptation of Jeff Parker's comic books. Focussing on the young days of Cyclops, Jean Grey (etc) when they were at Xavier's School for the Gifted, First Class won't feature Wolverine at all. But though it may be lacking in the claw department, let's not forget that Bryan Singer (Bryan Singer!) is back on board. So all is not lost. Unless they do that stupid CGI Patrick Stewart thing again.
