Yet another movie that I really want to see is getting caught up in the director shuffle. This time around it’s the X-Men: First Class sequel, X-Men: Days of Future Past. And the one leaving is the guy who wrote and directed the first one, Matthew Vaughn.
Apparently, he’s decided he wants to go work on something else, some other comic book adaptation called The Secret Service, so he’s leaving the film in the lurch. Fox is looking around for a replacement and rumor has it that producer of the film, Bryan Singer is on the top of their list.
Bryan Singer was the man responsible for the first two X-Men films and those turned out pretty damn cool, so hopefully he’ll get back on board for this one. As long as he doesn’t direct characters to have emotional crying moments, we should be okay. Still no word, however, on whether he’s going to say yes or not.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is set to release on July 18th, 2014, so the studio better get moving. And they better stay the fk away from Brett Ratner this time or I am seriously going to firebomb the production – I swear to fkn God.
Thanks to ComicBookMovie for the heads-up.
