According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is based on the 1981 Marvel Comics' 'Uncanny X-Men' and will feature, "both the 1960s First Class characters as well as a future version of the original trilogy characters. The original trilogy actors are said to appear primarily in scenes depicting a dystopian future."

The film, from 20th Century Fox, is scheduled to begin production this April with a target release date of July 18, 2014.
