Deadline is reporting Matthew Vaughn won’t be directing X-Men: Days of Future Past. Vaughn will stay on in a producing capacity and his next film will be Secret Service, an adaptation of his buddy Mark Millar’s comic book.
Now, much as they were when Rupert Wyatt left Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Fox is in search of a director for a high profile sequel to a reboot that was loved by fans.
Who is Fox looking at to replace Vaughn? None other than Bryan Singer.
Please let this happen.
Singer did a great job with X-Men and X2: X-Men United, which is still my favorite of the series. Also, given the plot of Days of Future Past, there’s the possibility of actors from the first X-Men trilogy returning; so it would be nice to have a little X-Men reunion.
