Bryan Singer reassembles X2 writing team for Apocalypse

Mike Dougherty and Dan Harris return

Bryan Singer is getting his old band back together for X-Men: Apocalypse, with the director recruiting X2 screenwriters Mike Dougherty and Dan Harris to work on the new film.

That pair will work alongside Simon Kinberg on the new script, with Singer tweeting an image of his new team hard at it. Well, sitting around talking, anyway…

Singer also tweeted the message “It’s snowing in Egypt”, a possible reference to Apocalypse’s Egyptian origin story.

While plot details have yet to be confirmed, it can only be a good thing that the team behind what is probably the strongest X-Men film to date are getting back together.

In the meantime, there’s X-Men: Days Of Future Past to look forward to, with that film opening in UK cinemas on 22 May 2014.


What are you hoping to see from the new films? Tell us, below!

      I thought it was already confirmed that it'd be the First Class generation.

      Great news. IMO X2 is still one of the best comic book movies ever made, certainly the best X-Men movie to date.

      An Apocalypse addaptation without all the core team would be a huge dissapointement and wasted opportunity. Having said that, we're sure this 2016 is just his introduction and the studio and Singer have something bigger in store, with not only First Class cast, but X-Force and original cast too. This will be reeeeeeeeeal epic, guys
