    Rumor: Are Bryan Singer And Leonardo DiCaprio Teaming For Big-Screen 'Six Billion Dollar Man'?

    It's hard not to lament the career that Bryan Singer might have had. When he broke out with the arrival of "The Usual Suspects," one of the most textured and well-achieved of the post-"Pulp Fiction" wave of crime flicks, it seemed like the annoucement of a major talent, and t...

    Bryan Singer-Produced Thriller 'uwantme2killhim?' Starts Shooting With Cast Shake-Up

    If Hollywood is to be believed, the internet is pretty much a deathtrap. Whether it's Jeremy Northam destroying Sandra Bullock's life online in "The Net," Tim Robbins' murderous software billionaire in "Antitrust," sentient computers like Skynet or Shia La Boeuf's adversary in "Eagle Eye," there's n...

But speaking with SFX (via Punch Drunk Critics) Singer reveals that it was actuall...

    Neil Burger To Direct Untold Story Of 'Bonnie & Clyde' By 'Up In The Air' Writer Sheldon Turner

    Bryan Singer & Guy Ritchie's "Excalibur" Projects Are DeadIt looks like Neil Burger is finally seeing some dividends after a decade or so in Hollywood. He burst onto the scene with "Interview With The Assassin" in 2002, but four years his sophomore effort, the magician drama "The Illusionist" was overshadowed by another similarly themed movie that came out the same year, none other than Christopher Nolan's "The Prestige." By the time Burger got to his Iraq war drama "The Lucky Ones," audiences had already cooled on the genre but this year, he finally struck gold with "Limitless," the sci-fi tinged thriller that surprised everyone by earning o...

    Bryan Singer Says 'X-Men: First Class' Sequel Could Be Set During Vietnam Or The Civil Rights Era

    (For Real This Time)Maybe Bryan Singer should be directing these films? Perhaps one of the biggest beefs, we, and other discerning audiences had with Mathew Vaughn's "X-Men: First Class," was all this talk about the film being set in the heart of the civil rights era and Charles Xavier (James McAvoy...

    Josh Schwartz & Jamie Moss Lose Out On Screenwriting Credits For 'X-Men: First Class'

    Sheldon Turner Of 'Up In The Air' Gets A "Story-By" Credit For His 'Magneto' Script Elements That Were UsedHow many screenwriters does it take to write an "X-Men" film? Or alternate lede: Screenplay credits are a tricky matter. Just ask "Up In The Air" screenwriter Sheldon Turner. He wrote the original draft of the Jason Reitman film, but things turned semi-ugly during the 2009 Oscar campaign when Reitman essentially said -- perhaps in not so many words, but close -- that he had never read Turner's draft and had adapted the screenplay on his own from Walter Kirn's novel. Still, Turner received his screen credit. And the duo awkwardly took th...

    En-Ra-Ha: Eddie Marsan Joins Bryan Singer's 'Jack The Giant Killer'

    We're never one to begrudge anyone a payday, particularly when they're a character actor who's toiled away in theater and TV for years and who's finally managed to get a big break. Which is why we're pleased to see Eddie Marsan working so consistently these days. The actor's been working since the late 80s, but the last decade has seen him go from strength to strength -- kicking off with serious, auteur-driven pictures like "Gangs of New York" and "21 Grams," he's gone on to crop up in the likes of "Mission Impossible 3," "Miami Vice," "Hancock" and "Sherlock Holmes," while still turning out terrific performances in the indie world, particula...

    'X-Men: First Class' Sequel Talk Starts Already, Mutants To Get Down In The '70s & '80s?

    Beast with feathered hair? Emma Frost rocking neon tights? Magneto with a Flock of Seagulls haircut? Charles Xavier with some serious mutton chop sideburns? Thanks to "Mad Men," the '50s and '60s are en vogue, which couldn't be better for "X-Men: First Class" with a setting that studio types are lik...
