'Gossip Girl' And 'O.C.' Creator To Write X-Men Prequel?


Posted November 19, 2008 - By Joseph Baxter

The rumored Marvel prequel (one of them, anyway) entitled X-Men: First Class may be getting creator of Gossip Girl and The O.C. to  pen the screenplay.

Currently in developmental stage and set (as of now) for 2010, the film (based on the short-lived comic series) is to tell the tale of the first students to enter Professor Xavier's Mutant Academy. It's also no big mystery that given who they're talking to about this project, that it will be laden with teeny-bopper elements that will certainly be loosely held together by the idea of the world of "mutants vs. humans" that create the dynamic of the X-lore.

Spoiler Alert: The story will be about a new kid in town who's hunky, but rough around the edges and no one likes him. Then he falls for the hot girl in class...who already has a boyfriend (who, of course, is a jerk and doesn't deserve her.) Then some mutant fights will happen over the girl, then they band together in the end to fight evil, but not without designer clothes and product in hair, all this amid "scandalous affairs," yada, yada. Am I getting warm yet, guys? *

*For the sarcasm-impaired: NOT the actual plot.
