Next X-Men Movie Might Shoot Miami-Set Scenes... in Michigan
X-Men, the blockbuster film franchise and the reason that every summer now includes at least one big superhero movie, is following in the footsteps of its originating comic book series by being way too overextended with a never-ending supply of spinoffs, sequels, and solo movies. In fact, there's at least five rumored movies set in Marvel's mutant universe.
A location scout is seeking out areas with a 1960s, South American or Central American island feel for the next X-Men movie, 'X-Men: First Class.' In particular, he needs to find cafe and bar locations, evoking the Argentinian feel of Bariloche, and an Art Deco Cafe or restaurant overlooking a body of water. Additionally, the movie calls for a Miami-styled harbor for yachts. If you know of any locations that seem to match a description, please contact our office.
You're guess is as good as ours if "Art Deco Cafe" and "Miami-styled harbor" mean there's actually a scene set in Miami (let's not pay much mind to the fact Miami doesn't actually have a traditional harbor). However, South Florida could easily supply all of those locations. Oh, wait... the notice went out through the West Michigan Film Office, meaning perhaps they're looking to find these locations in Michigan. Good luck with that.
