'X-Men': Bryan Singer in talks to return to franchise

Posted on

Bryan Singer said today that he’s in talks with Twentieth Century Fox to direct another movie in the X-Men franchise, according to an Associated Press story published on the San Francisco Chronicle’s website. “I’m still looking to possibly returning to the X-Men franchise,” Singer said during a talk at South Korea’s Pusan International Film Festival. “I’ve been talking to Fox about it.”

The director made both the original X-Men and its sequel X2: X-Men United but skipped the third installment, X-Men: The Last Stand, so he could focus on Superman Returns. Brett Ratner instead directed Last Stand, and Gavin Hood helmed the franchise’s spin-off, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which hit theaters earlier this year. Added Singer: “I love Hugh Jackman. I love the cast [of the X-Men movies].”
