X-Men First Class avoids Jennifer Lawrence-conflict with Catching Fire

Catching Fire, will shoot with Lawrence in the role of shape-shifting Mystique this fall; after that, she will film the sequel to X-Men: First Class the following January.

Hunger Games' star Jennifer Lawrence may not get the role in Oliver Stone's action thriller Savages, but she is quite busy with 20th Century Fox' sequel of The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Lionsgate's X-Men: First Class too. And since the studios are planning to release the movies during the next year, they made it to an agreement over Lawrence's availability. As young lady must love to have movie studios fighting over her, but luckily the conflict has been resolved and Fox announced that The Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire, will shoot with Lawrence in the role of shape-shifting Mystique this fall; after that, she will film the sequel to X-Men: First Class the following January.


In related news, Matthew Vaughn, the director of X-Men: First Class will be returning to helm his own sequel. Written by Simon Kinberg (Sherlock Holmes), the sequel may pick up with the assassination of JFK, according to an interview with Vaughn last year.


Meanwhile, if you're not caught up on either of these projects, be sure to look for Lawrence in the horror/thriller, House at the End of the Street, which opens September 21st.
