Director Matthew Vaughn Signs Up For 'X-Men 3'

Layer Cake director Matthew Vaughn is set to replace Bryan Singer in 20th Century Fox and Marvel Entertainment's X-Men 3, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Bryan Singer, director of the previous two X-Men movies, ended negotiations for the project last summer, and moved onto Warner Bros. Superman Returns.

Currently Hugh Jackman is signed up to reprise his Wolverine role, while Halle Berry, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart are in talks to return.

Filming is scheduled to begin early in the summer, for a final release currently aimed at Memorial Day May 26, 2006.
