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.
