Fox plans to have Bryan Singer direct X-Men: Apocalypse


X-Men: Days of Future Past was critically praised and commercially successful, already making over $600 million worldwide. However, a deal wasn’t locked in for director Bryan Singer to helm X-Men: Apocalypse. It looks like the scandal that Singer was involved in wasn’t enough to deter Fox from wanting to hire him again.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Fox president of production Emma Watts has said that they’re working on getting the director to direct.

“Right now we are totally at the outlining phase,” Watts said. “But nothing would make me happier than if it all worked out. It’s always been the intention for him to do it.”

Singer is back to his “usual” self by tweeting again, with one tweet about how he and writer Simon Kinberg are taking a break from writing the Apocalypse script to enjoy the World Cup and promoting ABC’s Black Box. (He stopped doing press and social media for a bit after the scandal.)

X-Men: Apocalypse will hit theaters on May 26, 2016.
