Bryan Singer to Direct 'X-Men'
Published: 10/31/2012 12:49am
Bryan Singer has been signed to direct X-Men: Days of Future Past, according to Deadline, in addition to his current roles as producer and writer of a treatment. Singer directed the first two X-Men films so is intimately familiar with the franchise.
Singer is replacing Matthew Vaughn, who pulled out last week (see "Vaughn Out as next 'X-Men' Director"). Vaughn will probably remain involved as a producer, according to the report.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is scheduled to be released July 18, 2014; with the quick replacement for Vaughn, the studio hopes to still make that date.
