Matthew Vaughn opts out ‘X Men’ sequel; ‘The Hobbit’ is short, yet long; ‘S.H.I.E.L.D. casting

In a surprise move that may not be that huge of a surprise, Matthew Vaughn has decided not to helm X Men: Days of Future Past, the sequel to his X Men: First Class. No word was given for his departure –though he may still stay with the project as a producer- but Vaughn has been known to be very picky on the projects he does do. He was close to dropping out of Kick-Ass before changing his mind and then opted out of the sequel, which is currently filming under the helm of Jeff Wadlow.

According to Deadline, his replacement might be Bryan Singer, who launched the movie franchise back in 2000 and has remained with the property through the years. Vaughn, who wrote the treatment for the sequel that is scripted by Simon Kinberg, would now step back as producer, along with Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner.
