Bryan Singer No Longer Directing X-Men: First Class

Bryan Singer has a convenient problem: too many people want him. It’s a good problem to have, unless of course you have to drop out of directing the fourth movie in a series when you directed the first two. Singer is already in the process of directing Jack the Giant Killer and will not be able to direct X-Men: First Class, Deadline.com reports. Instead, he will produce the film. Maybe J.J. Abrams should tackle this project in Singer’s absence after his success with his Star Trek origin.
