It sounds like 20th Century Fox is indeed moving forward with a sequel to last summer's X-Men: First Class as they've just hired a director for it.
And it's Matthew Vaughn, the same filmmaker who made the first, First Class. "Fox has just closed a deal with Matthew Vaughn to come back and direct the sequel to X-Men: First Class, with Simon Kinberg writing the script and Bryan Singer back as producer," according to Deadline.
There was some concern that X-Men: First Class might not get a sequel as it was a modest, but not astounding success at the box office.
