If Bryan Singer Won't Direct X-Men: First Class, Who Will?


As had been recently rumored, Bryan Singer just vacated the director's chair of X-Men: First Class due to outstanding commitments to helm Jack the Giant Killer next. Because Fox is the studio behind the project, they're determined to hire a new director immediately instead of waiting for Singer to become available. (Hitfix's Drew McWeeny said the studio has already met with two potential fill-ins, but declined to actually name them.) Hey, why not Sofia Coppola or Stephen Daldry? I hear they're the hot new action directors on the block. [Deadline, Hitfix]
