Fox Picks Up Gossip Scribe for X-Men: First Class

Back during the middle of summer we were told that 20th Century Fox planned on giving us even younger mutants with X-Men: First Class. After acquiring the film rights to the comicbook in July, the studio began seeking a writer to adapt the source material. Concluding the four-month search, the studio has hired Gossip Girl creator Josh Schwartz for the job.

Josh Schwartz to Adapt X-Men: First Class

Though Fox is trying to remain quiet on the direction they plan to take X-Men: First Class, here is the comicbook's official synopsis as provided by Marvel:

For millions of years, mankind’s place on Earth was unchallenged – until five young people paved the way for a new kind of human. While students at the Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters, Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Angel, Beast and Iceman taught the world what it meant to be X-Men. These are the hidden stories of the team that laid the foundation of a mutant dynasty!

Other characters we can expect to see include Rogue, Jubilee and Colossus.

While Josh Schwartz had done well on television with both Gossip Girl and the hilarious Chuck, X-Men: First Class would be his first major feature film. If all goes well, 20th Century Fox is hoping that First Class can spawn a franchise of sequels.
