Louis Leterrier to Direct Y: The Last Man?

The last we heard about an adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan's Y: The Last Man was back in 2008 when D.J. Caruso was set to direct the film and Shia LaBeouf was set to star. Now Latino Review is reporting that Clash of the Titans director Louis Leterrier could come aboard to direct.

We reported earlier this week that Leterrier was possibly a choice to direct Marvel's superhero ensemble film The Avengers, but the site reports that since Marvel is trying to regain control of the company from Disney, "no one is making future decisions for the time being."

We'll be sure to keep you posted on any further details on Y: The Last Man as soon as we have more information. Louis Leterrier's film Clash of the Titans opens in 2D and 3D theaters nationwide on April 2.

Viggo Mortensen and David Cronenberg Reuniting for Eastern Promises 2?

It seems that actor Viggo Mortensen and director David Cronenberg
could be working with each other once again, but this time for a sequel to their 2007 film. Deadline London is reporting that Viggo Mortensen and director David Cronenberg are lining up a sequel to their 2007 film Eastern Promises.

Steven Knight, who wrote the first film, will be writing the sequel and Mortensen will reprise his role as Nikkolai. It was said that Focus Features was hoping to get the film in production by this coming winter.

Mortensen and Cronenberg first have to re-team for their latest project, though, The Talking Cure, which was said to be released in 2011.

We'll be sure to keep you posted on any further details on an Eastern Promises sequel as soon as we have more information.

Bryan Singer Only Producing X-Men: First Class

Bryan Singer steps down as director for X-Men: First Class

We reported last week that director Bryan Singer might only be producing an upcoming superhero film and now that news seems to be confirmed. Deadline New York is reporting that Singer will only be producing X-Men: First Class, and won't be directing the film.

Singer is slated to begin production on his new film Jack the Giant Killer this summer and the site reports that Fox liked the script by Jamie Moss so much they want to fast-track the film for a summer 2011 release, which means Singer wouldn't be available to direct the project, due to his commitment with Jack the Giant Killer, which is a Warner Bros. film.

It was said that Fox is currently looking for directors for the film and it was also reported that the studio is looking to turn this film into a new trilogy. Moss' story was said to revolve around the origin of Professor Xavier and Magneto's conflict.
