Bryan Singer to Direct 'X-Men: First Class'

The best thing about the red carpet for movie premieres is that a lot of other juicy news gets leaked. Case in point: While talking to a MySpace crew, Bryan Singer revealed that he will direct 'X-Men: First Class.'

"I'm ramping up to do a movie called 'Jack the Giant Killer' at Warner Bros, and I just yesterday signed a deal to do an 'X-Men: First Class Origins' picture, which is kind of cool. I'm very excited."

Seeing that the film will follow the original X-Men (Angel, Beast, Cyclops, Iceman and Jean Grey), we're assuming that this will be a true origins film and disregard the three previous X-Men films.
