James McAvoy, Matthew Vaughn put U.K. spat aside for ‘X-Men’
HollywoodNews.com: “X-Men: First Class” director Matthew Vaughn and the film’s actor James McAvoy are in disagreement over the shuttering of the U.K. Film Council.
The organization was instrumental in funding a number of British film productions and spurring the country’s cinema industry.
Vaughn supports the closing of the U.K. Film Council and McAvoy does not.
Nonetheless, their viewpoints aren’t impacting their work together on “X-Men.” McAvoy is set to appear as Professor Charles Xavier, the father-like figure who nurtures the mutants. The role was made famous in the previous “X-Men” films by Patrick Stewart.
“James and I have discussed this. He’s still in the movie… just,” Vaughn told the Daily Mail.
“James is an actor and actors don’t necessarily know what’s best for them. That’s on the record.
“But he’s a brilliant actor and he’ll be great in this film.”
