Simon Kinberg To Write 'X-Men 3' Script

Simon Kinberg has been hired by 20th Century Fox and Marvel Studios to write X-Men 3 for a high-six-against-seven-figure sum, says the Hollywood Reporter.

Kinberg said that the story line for the third X-Men movie is still being worked out. "I'm a religious reader of the ('X-Men') comics, and I loved the first two movies," Kinberg said.

Kinberg has previously penned the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie starrer Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and has rewritten Jennifer Garner's Elektra.
