'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Officially Taps Its New Director


Bryan Singer


It has now been confirmed that Bryan Singer is the one who is chosen to replace Matthew Vaughn as the helmer for the 'X-Men: First Class' sequel.

Following Matthew Vaughn's recent departure from its directing seat, "X-Men: Days of Future Past" has found its new helmer. It is now official that Bryan Singer will replace Vaughn as the director for the "X-Men: First Class" sequel.

Per Deadline, Singer has just closed his deal with 20th Century Fox to serve behind the lens. Before Vaughn left the project, Singer was originally tapped to serve as the producer. Though so, this won't mark his first directing gig for the "X-Men" franchise. He had previously helmed 2000's "X-Men" and 2003's "X2".

Last week, it was reported that Vaughn abruptly bailed out of his helming duty, but he would still be involved in the project as a co-producer. The reason behind his departure was unclear. That was not the first time he made such decision as he once briefly exited "First Class", forcing Fox to find a replacement before he changed his mind and returned.

Set to kick off production in January 2013, "X-Men: Days of Future Past" is scheduled to open Stateside on July 18, 2014. The much awaited Marvel movie is set to bring back Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Kevin Bacon, January Jones, Rose Byrne and Nicholas Hoult.
