Bryan Singer will direct ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past
Source: EW

Like a wayward Wolverine, Bryan Singer is returning to the X-Men fold, closing a deal Tuesday to direct the next film in the franchise, X-Men: Days of Future Past, EW has confirmed. He replaces X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn, who stepped back from the director’s chair last week for unspecified reasons, though he will reportedly stay on as a producer and screenwriter.

After helming 2000′s X-Men and 2003′s X2 (regarded as one of the best superhero movies of the last 12 years), Singer left the franchise to make 2006′s Superman Returns for Warner Bros. He actually returned to the world of Charles Xavier and Eric Lehnsherr as a producer of X-Men: First Class, also earning a “story by” credit for the script. Days of Future Past is nominally a sequel to that film, which starred James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and Jennifer Lawrence as younger versions of Prof. X, Magneto, and Mystique, respectively — and all three actors are expected to return for Days of Future Past. But given the prospective time-traveling comic book source material and Singer’s own comments about bringing some Marvel-style “connectivity” to the franchise, the filmmaker could be calling on some of the actors from his earlier X-Men films to make a cameo or three.

The film is due to begin production early next year, and arrive in theaters on July 18, 2014.

Hugh Jackman in Talks to Reprise Wolverine in New 'X-Men' Movie (Exclusive)

Director Bryan Singer continues to merge past and present X-Men actors for Fox’s X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Sources confirm that Hugh Jackman is in negotiations to reprise his Wolverine role in the movie, which is ostensibly a sequel to X-Men: First Class but will prominently feature actors from the first X-Men trilogy (the first two of which Singer directed).

Singer announced Monday that Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen -- who portrayed X-Men founder Professor Charles Xavier and renegade mutant leader Magneto, respectively, in the original X-Men movies -- are joining First Class actors James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult.

Days of Future Past is a classic storyline that unfolded in two issues of Marvel Comics' Uncanny X-Men in 1981, from writer Chris Claremont and artists John Byrne and Terry Austin. The story was partially set in an alternate future where surviving mutants have been penned in concentration camps, giant robots called Sentinels patrol America, and most of the X-Men have been hunted and killed. In the present day, the X-Men were forced to stop a key event from unfolding in order to keep that future from occurring.

Seeds of a tie-in between the trilogies were sown when Jackman memorably cameoed as Wolverine in First Class. The fanboy world began speculating about Jackman's possible return once news broke that Stewart and McKellen were returning. Jackman recently wrapped production on The Wolverine, a sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

The actor, repped by WME and Sloane Offer, is about to open Les Miserables, which is generating massive amounts of Oscar talk.

Bryan Singer Eyes Peter Dinklage For ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’
BY MIKE FLEMING JR | Deadline

EXCLUSIVE: For X-Men: Days Of Future Past, director Bryan Singer has assembled a collision of his original X-Men cast with the returning cast of X-Men First Class, but here’s an intriguing development: I hear he’s bringing in Game Of Thrones star Peter Dinklage into the mix for a key role. Dinklage won an Emmy for his work as Tyrion Lannister, arguably the only sane member of that sordid royal clan. Singer has become infatuated with announcing his cast through Twitter (he’s got everyone from Jennifer Lawrence to Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen and James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender in the mix), but I’ll try to find out what role Dinklage will play.

I quite liked the first one. Combining the two franchises seems like a bad idea. The main draw for First Class was McAvoy and Fassbender and their relationship. If this becomes another Wolverine fest, I'm gonna be pissed.

This one has some interesting ideas, I really hope it works (and has a lot of McAvoy/Fassbender).
