just read they are trying to continue off the trilogy with a new live action x-men movie.
Twentieth Century Fox is gearing up to continue its “X-Men” franchise with a younger set of mutants.
The studio has tapped “Gossip Girl” creator Josh Schwartz to write “X-Men: First Class.”
"The writing assignment has also included the possibility of directing the pic, but so far Schwartz has opted not to take the helm.
Lauren Shuler Donner, who produced all three “X-Men” pics, as well as next summer’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” is producing “First Class” alongside “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” scribe Simon Kinberg.
Fox is keeping quiet on plans and declined to confirm details of the project. The studio has been considering ways to continue its successful series of “X-Men” movies after the third installment, the Brett Ratner-helmed “X-Men: The Last Stand,” collected $459 million in 2006.
Fox has been leaning toward using the younger characters introduced in the previous pics in future installments — teenagers with powers taught at the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning.
The resulting film would likely draw from elements of the Marvel comic of the same name, launched in 2006, and enlist such characters as Iceman, Rogue, Angel, Colossus, Jubilee and Shadowcat, who have appeared prominently or made cameos in prior pics.
Given Hollywood’s penchant for reboots with new actors playing familiar roles, pic could also reintroduce characters. Comicbook revolves around the Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Beast, Iceman, Angel and Professor X.
Naturally, “First Class” could also result in its own series of sequels.
The pic joins other “X-Men”-related projects already in the works at the studio. Fox is actively developing a standalone “Magneto” pic, as well as considering a “Deadpool” spinoff, based on a character played by Ryan Reynolds in “Wolverine.” Shuler Donner is producing “Magneto.”
The regular slate of “X-Men” pics would provide Fox with a reliable series of movies that perform at the B.O. and not repeat a dismal summer sesh like the studio experienced this year. Source "

I hope this pans out.
I think of myself as an X-Men fan, and I loved X3. I don't think it deserves all the hate it gets. Yes, I acknowledge all of its weaknesses, but I like it anyway. I would be very pleased to see the saga continue...and learn that Jean Grey and Cyclops are being held prisoner by Mr. Sinister and the Jean in X3 was a Madelyne Pryor-type clone Sinister sent to get rid of the X-Men...

I hope if X-Men "First Class" works out we get to see some Sentinels used in the right context, not coming off cheesy but in a perfect action sequence used sparingly and designed kick-ass enough to just leave you wanting more, used too much for too long would probably come off badly.
