You may remember this report about how Jennifer Lawrence’s recently bustling schedule might not allow her to shoot Catching Fire alongside the sequel to X-Men: First Class. Crisis averted.

As followers of our Hunger Games section will know, Catching Fire is scheduled to begin production in August, so 20th Century Fox’s decision to push production on X-Men to January is a smart one.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Fox is informing talent agencies Thursday that the studio plans to begin shooting its in-development sequel to X-Men: First Class in January. That means Lionsgate could move forward with an August-September start date for the Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire without a conflict for Lawrence, who is set to star in both.

Thanks to The Hollywood Reporter (via CBM) for the tip!

    X-Men and THG are two of my most important fandoms, so I was really concerned about this. Can’t wait for the films! :)

    oh man jennifer lawrence is gonna have a rough couple of years here…

    Didn’t like her that much in X-men, but didn’t really like any of the younger mutants so that’s not really saying much.

    Glad it worked out for her though, seems like a nice person.

    With the director change, I’m not sure HG will get into production on schedule. I’m guessing the movie will be pushed back 6 months to a year.

      I’m still not convinced by the director change. It was one website that reported it… :/
