X-Men: First Class, 20th-Century Fox's reboot of the X-Men franchise, is weeks away from beginning principal production (it won't hit theaters until next summer), but writer-director Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass, Stardust, Layer Cake) and screenwriter Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass, Stardust) have tossed 12 pages of their screenplay and the accompanying storyboards after Vaughn took time away from pre-production to see Christopher Nolan's "existential heist film," Inception.

Here's Vaughn, via LA Hero Complex's Geoff Boucher:
I saw Inception, which I loved, but my heart sank when I saw that a few of the ideas we had were up [on the screen]. So it's either leave it in and look as if you're copying or change things. We completely ripped out about 12 pages of the script and the storyboards.
