Vaughn Calls Quits on X-Men 3

X-Men Wolverine needs to have a serious sit-down with Bryan Singer.
I recently posted an article about how it looked like 20th Century Fox's X-Men 3 was finally back on track and things were beginning to roll smoothly. Well, it turns out a vehicle got in the way and has completely de-railed the engine. Crap, sorry for the analogy, Matthew Vaughn has left the director's chair for X-Men 3.

X-Men 3 Loses Vaughn

After Vaughn worked his ass off to help create a supposedly impressive script and talk Fox into letting Kelsey Grammar become The Beast [nice choice in my opinion], he has opted to bounce off the entire project. When initially asked about why Matthew Vaughn would leave a project that he claimed to have 'loved,' the only answers would come in the form of 'personal reasons.' However, in the latest statement it seems that Matthew Vaughn was not down for an extended move to the US and decided that he would rather remain closer to home.

No, I am not joking, this does seem to be the main reason for Matthew Vaughn not continuing on with the X-Men 3 project. However, don't let this get you down, according to AICN we are supposedly going to get an announcement within a couple days of who the new director may be and who will stand in for the part of Angel. According to Avi Arad, 20th Century Fox is still fully behind the film and expect this X-Men film to be the best one yet.

Also, it has been rumored that Bryan Singer has been approached again about taking the reins of X3, but don't get your hopes up.
