Matthew Vaughn Quits "X-Men 3"

by | June 1, 2005 | Comments

The Hollywood Reporter brings some rather annoying news for all you "X-Men" fans: Citing "personal reasons," filmmaker Matthew Vaughn has decided to step away from directing "X-Men 3." No word yet on how this sudden change will affect the start of production … but Fox better find a good director, and fast!

Bryan Singer, director of the original "X-Men" as well as "X-Men 2," is currently working on WB’s "Superman Returns" epic, so he’s definitely out of the running. Mr. Vaughn has been credited with bringing actors like Vinnie Jones ("Snatch") and Kelsey Grammer ("Down Periscope") to the project, and he’s presently turning a few arthouse heads with his directorial debut "Layer Cake." Rest assured that we’ll bring you any fresh X-news as soon as we hear it.
