It would seem as if director Bryan Singer is getting the old gang back together. Earlier this morning, or should I say late last night when it comes to the West Coast, Bryan Singer took to Twitter and posted a picture of a late night writing session for X-Men: Apocalypse.

Gathered together in the picture were Singer himself, along with Simon Kinberg, who most recently wrote the screenplay for X-Men: Days of Future Past, as well as Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty. Harris and Dougherty worked together on the script for X2.
There is no word on who will officially be responsible for penning the script for the film, but it is rather interesting to see a “meeting of the minds” of so many people who have been involved in the franchise thus far.
It was just two weeks ago that X-Men: Apocalypse was officially announced, and the details on the project are being kept under tight wraps at the moment.
It will be interesting to see where they will go with the storyline. What leads me to wonder is what kind of involvement Wolverine will have in the film. As you know, Twentieth Century Fox is current in the process of putting together another Wolverine movie. Also, Wolverine is indeed involved in some of the Apocalypse storylines in the comics. However, as we told you earlier this month, Hugh Jackman said in an interview with Vanity Fair that he is unsure if he will be returning his claws anytime soon.
He is not currently committed to any X-Men related project beyond X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Who would you like to see pen the script for X-Men: Apocalypse? Where would you like to see them go with the story? Sound off in the comments below and let us know what you think.
X-Men: Apocalypse is scheduled to be released on May 27, 2016.
