We finally know when work will begin on a sequel to X-Men First Class—but thanks to the success of The Hunger Games, it’s apparently going to take a bit longer than we’d hoped.
Actress Jennifer Lawrence, who stars as Katniss in The Hunger Games, has quickly become a bona fide star in the wake of the film’s box office bonanza. So big, in fact, that she won’t be available to shoot that X-Men: First Class sequel until January 2013. ->
