20th Century Fox has recreated a Nazi concentration camp, though surprisingly it’s not being used for their mail room.
Bleeding Cool reports that director Matthew Vaughn, who is helming the currently shooting “X-Men: First Class”, is planning a recreation of the opening scene of Bryan Singer’s first “X-Men” film in 2000.
That scene was set in Poland in 1944, where a young Eric Lensherr inside a Nazi concentration camp first discovered his ability to control magnetic fields. Vaughn is apparently filming an almost shot-for-shot take on the first film’s opening scene, but after a certain point will add his own twist on the iconic moment.
Bill Milner (“Son of Rambow”) will portray the young Lensherr in said scene. Filming on the project is currently underway in the UK and photos have emerged at The Film Stage of James McAvoy (Professor X), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique) and Rose Byrne (Moira MacTaggert) shooting scenes of the mostly 60’s-set feature.
