Black Reel Awards nominee Lauren Shuler Donner will produce under the banner of her production company Donners’ Company; Simon Kinberg will produce for Genre Films; and Bryan Singer is producing for Bat Hat Harry Productions. Executive producers are Producers Guild of America PGA Award winner Todd Hallowell, and Directors Guild of America DGA Award winner Josh McLaglen. X-Men: Apocalypse is set for a May 27, 2016 release date.
