Bryan Singer To Direct X-Men: First Class
Posted 12.18.09 by Ryan
Leave it to Bryan Singer to upstage an Avatar premiere by accidentally slipping the news that he was indeed retuning to the X-Men franchise. While talking about upcoming projects, Singer said he will direct the prequel to the X-Men trilogy, X-Men: First Class.
I'm ramping up to do a movie called Jack the Giant Killer at Warner Bros, and I just yesterday signed a deal to do an X-Men: First Class origins picture, which is kind of cool. I'm very excited.
While it looks like First Class won't go into production anytime soon, fans have to be pleased with Singer's return. While he works on Jack the Giant Killer, the First Class script will get another draft from Street Kings writer Jamie Moss. The O.C.'s Josh Schwartz wrote the original draft.
