Singer may draw Excalibur

by Matthew Price Published: August 20, 2009

Director Bryan Singer, after seemingly being out of sight for awhile, has surfaced in connection with another project — Warner Bros. remake of Excalibur.  According to

This follows other recent news that Singer will produce and direct an upcoming “Battlestar Galactica” remake.  His next directorial project is likely to be “Jack the Giant Killer,” an epic fantasy from New Line, according to THR.

I’m glad to see Singer’s name coming up so often, as I like most of the things he has directed and many of the things he has produced.  If there’s disappointment, it’s that he seems pretty unlikely to return to Superman at this point.  (I realize I liked Superman Returns more than about anyone else on the planet.)

I’d also like to see him return to X-Men, as I enjoyed both of his previous X-projects.   Variety indicates he could come on to “X-Men First Class,” though I don’t know if that necessarily makes more sense (to me, anyway) than his returning to do a straight-up “X-Men 4.”  Either way, I’d welcome a return of Singer to the X-Men universe.
