Looking to achieve an immersive, authentic 90's vibe, Fox is apparently getting started early on the casting for the next X-Men film after X-Men Apocalypse. According to producer Simon Kinberg, that film, whatever it is, will be set in the 1990s, following X-Men Apocalypse's 1980s setting, Days of Future Pasts's 1970s setting, and X-Men: First Class's 1960s setting. It's unclear whether the film would be a proper X-Men film, or the long-awaited (by Rob Liefeld's ego) X-Force film.

"We've already obtained the rights to use the song that goes Hey-yay-yay-yay-yay, hey-yay-yay, I said hey, what's goin' on, you know, by that chick with the dreadlocks," said Kinberg during a film junket. "So you'll definitely be hearing a lot of that."

Other 90s artifacts Kinberg hopes to obtain for the film include Christian Slater, unreasonably long chain wallets, and "that guy from the band Soul Asylum," who Kinberg said will really help set the atmosphere. Kinberg also spent several weeks in negotiations with representatives of what he believed to be the rap group Kris Kross, only to learn to his dismay that he was really negotiating with the agent of singer-songwriter Christopher Cross.

"It's a process, and we're working through it," Kinberg admitted.

At press time, Kinberg told reporters he was busy "carefully creating large rips in the knees of his dungarees," and suggested that anyone who needed to get in touch with him try his beeper. We'll keep you updated.
