I haven't yet seen X-Men: Apocalypse so I couldn't tell you my opinion on it just yet, but the word now from Collider is that Simon Kinberg is poised to direct the next film in the franchise for 20th Century Fox. For this, the report also suggests it may possible, albeit currently unclear, that actress Sophie Turner may reprise her role as Jean Grey in the supposed film following earlier reports of Josh Boone's own development of said film previous noted as being based on The New Mutants story back in 2015.
Kinberg shares credits on plenty of Fox's Marvel treatments, namely X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men: Days of Future Past, X-Men: Apocalypse and Deadpool, as well as the latest series premiere of FX superhero series, Legion, and the upcoming release of the highly-acclaimed James Mangold-directed X-Men spin-off, Logan. Sources are also reporting that the new film will also forsee the return of James McAvoy in the role of Professor X while Kinberg is also producing the forthcoming Deadpool sequel for director David Leitch which is expected to roll cameras this summer.

I think it's safe to say you know your movie sucks when you not only screw the rights holders whose name and content you base your unsanctioned film on, but when said rights holders join the chorus of critics panning your movie from literally every angle of the internet. That is the level of achievement you have reached if your name is George Nolfi and you've directed a film called Birth Of The Dragon, long hyped to be a hopefully legendary homage to Bruce Lee, the late founder of Jeet Kune Do and patriarch of American martial arts movie fandom.
SPEAK OUT: Which Femme Fatales Would You Like To See Starring Opposite Alain Moussi In KICKBOXER: SYNDICATE?
John Stockwell's Kickboxer: Vengeance is now available wherever movies are sold in the U.S. and Canada with other screenings pending. It's a film that otherwise garners caution for fans as a rebooted fanfare that nonetheless has actor and martial artist Alain Moussi leading the action vehicle next to the star of its original iteration, actor Jean-Claude Van Damme.
