Jekyll Island has been chosen as a site for Twentieth Century Fox movie, X-Men: First Class. Filming began in October and is scheduled to run through January.

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the film’s producers have agreed to pay the authority $16,000 for use of a 4.5-acre beach area east of Beachview Drive and the Clam Creek fishing pier.

Fox spokesman Chris Petrikin said Jekyll Island was picked for its visual aesthetic, ease of travel and the local availability of housing and equipment.
