"X-Men" and "Superman Returns" director Bryan Singer might have to make some tough decisions over the summer. He’s got producer Joel Silver all excited about their "Logan’s Run" remake, but Mr. Singer’s also contracted to deliver a "Super" sequel, which WB might want to fast-track in this summer goes swell for the Caped One.

From Variety: "Bryan Singer may not direct the remake of "Logan’s Run" after all. Warner Bros. and producer Joel Silver want to start lensing the sci-fi pic this fall, which would mean Singer might end up shooting two tentpoles — "Logan’s" and a "Superman Returns" sequel — back-to-back. No one begrudges Singer for seeking a break from big-budget projects, although the filmmaker probably won’t make an official decision either way about "Logan’s Run" until "Superman Returns" bows in (June)."

The report also passes along a rumor that "V for Vendetta" director James McTeigue might step in should Mr. Singer walk on "Run."
