Some news on the next X-Men movie, plus Constantine 2?

'X-Men: First Class will be lighter fare and the Magneto script is "fantastic."

With X Men Origins Wolverine coming out next week people are already wondering which X-Men movie will follow the release of Wolverine.

The studio would like to know to. We do have a few new clues about the films in the pipeline.

Producer Lauren Shuler Donner admitted Fox had channelled all its energies into X-Men Origins: Wolverine and hadn't decided which project would proceed next. She added that the success of the Wolverine movie would be factor in whether the franchise continued.

Donner has given some new clues on the possibilities, which include X-Men Origins: Magneto, about the backstory of the mutant villain played by Ian Mckellen; and X-Men: First Class, about the earliest students at Xavier's school.

She said: "We have a great [Magneto] script. Honestly, we have all been just so focused on getting Wolverine out that we didn't take the time to sit down and explore what movies we're going to do next within the genre. We will do that. Magneto is a fantastic script, and hopefully we'll make it."

"And then we have First Class, which is based on the X-Men comic First Class and is very literal to the title: it's the first class in Xavier's school. But that's just being written. I haven't even seen a first draft."

"I'm producing that with [X-Men: The Last Stand co-writer] Simon Kinberg. There seems, to me, to be more humour, or more potential for humour. I really like that idea. I don't want to get into what the script is about, but it provides a bit of a lighter touch to the franchise."

On another note, Donner is also working on producing a sequel to Constantine. Warner Bros released the first film in 2005, with Keanu Reeves in the title role as occult investigator John Constantine. It was based on the Hellblazer comic book published by DC's Vertigo.

Donner said a writer was being sought for Constantine 2. Last year, prior to the release of the remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still, Keanu Reeves indicated that he would be prepared to appear in a follow-up when he told Moviesonline: "I wouldn't mind doing another Constantine."

Well it sounds like Donner has a lot on her plate. I would rather her focus on making sure that Magneto and First Class are top quality, but I suppose a Constantine sequel would be good as well
