Fox Closes Deal For Bryan Singer To Direct Next ‘X-Men’

Bryan Singer has just closed his deal to return to the director’s chair for the X-Men franchise to direct X-Men: Days Of Future Past, the next installment of 20th Century Fox‘s superhero series. The ink is still drying on the deal, we’ve learned. Matthew Vaughn was to direct the sequel to the hit spinoff X-Men: First Class, but we told you last week he was stepping back and that Singer would return to the directors chair in the X-Men franchise he launched; word is he is near a deal to produce this one instead along with writer Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner.

Singer launched the X-Men feature franchise with the first two superb films and has been a guiding influence in this spinoff by writing the treatment and producing. Fox already has the script for X-Men: Days Of Future Past, and set to return is Fox’s First Class cast that includes Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Jennifer Lawrence. The studio hopes to make the July 18, 2014 release date it set for the sequel.

Singer’s next film is Jack The Giant Slayer for New Line. He is repped by WME.

It's settled, then! ...For now.

I wish they'd take the opportunity to change the writer, too, but oh well! Godspeed!

Disclaimers: characters belong to Marvel, not me; I only do this out of affection! Title and overall opening and closing lines from the Foo Fighters’ “What If I Do?”
Summary/Notes: written as a rather belated birthday-present for euruaina, who requested some Erik/Charles sweetness; it got somewhat epic, I’m afraid. Falling in love, sweetness, heartbreak, desire, hope, reconciliation, honey. In this section, first kisses and sweetness and fluff.
