Fox Reportedly Want Bryan Singer Off X-MEN: APOCALYPSE

Fox Reportedly Want Bryan Singer Off X-MEN: APOCALYPSE

The original source on this one is a bit shaky (though it has been since picked up by other outlets), but word is that Singer's recent legal troubles have made 20th Century Fox too nervous to allow him to direct the next installment in their lucrative X-Men franchise.

According to Radar Online, Fox want X-Men: Days Of Future Past director Bryan Singer off the next movie in the series, Apocalypse. Apparently his recent legal troubles have made the studio too nervous to allow him to helm the follow up -- not because of the bad press (by all accounts they don't care if he's innocent or guilty), but because an ongoing court battle might impinge on the shoot, and force them to delay production. Like I said, the source doesn't have the best track record, but even if their report is bull, there's a very good chance Fox ARE worried about this...and they should be. After all, if this does go to court they can't very well risk their director having to abandon the production prematurely. Word is that "there have been talks about who else he’d let direct it, with him producing, but those led to heated arguments and walk outs". Take all of the above with that ever ready grain of salt for now, and we'll update if we any more word on this.
