Bryan Singer compares Days Of Future Past to The Usual Suspects

Bryan Singer has been discussing what we can expect from X-Men: Days Of Future Past , and has rather excitingly compared it to The Usual Suspects .

“[ It resembles The Usual Suspects ] in two ways,” says Singer. “One structurally, and also in the way I’ve shot it, because I shot the future elements that take place in the future first.”

Usual Suspects was this movie starring Kevin Spacey, Chazz Palminteri, Dan Hedaya, Giancarlo Esposito, and then they all left, and then a new group came - the suspects.”

“The same thing here - we had the X-Men of the future, all of them, all the actors I had worked with from the past all came, and then they left and a whole new group arrived, so you really feel like you’re making two very different movies.”

That said, the scale on which Singer is working this time around is significantly bigger than anything he has done in the past…

“There are 26 main characters, seven of them with a lot of restrictions in schedules,” continues Singer. “I wanted Evan Peters, I wanted all these actors but they all have these TV shows, which makes it really hard to schedule.”

“The reason he was announced so late is that I didn’t want to announce the character until I had an actor. It took me so long to figure that out!”

Not long to wait now to see how it all hangs together, with X-Men: Days Of Future Past opening in the UK on 22 May 2014.
