"Bryan Singer, along with executive producer Chris Lee and producer Jon Peters, are currently in Honolulu not only celebrating Lee's birthday but also discussing the next Superman movie. Pre-production is slated to start as early as sometime mid-to-late next year, the location thereof to still be determined.

However, this is a little more interesting. A Honolulu newspaper stated that Singer has in fact been approached for a potential fourth X-Men movie, though he said he simply couldn't squeeze in a large-scale project before the next Superman.

Although, he did say that he is interested in reading the Wolverine script. That movie in particular said that a director would be popping up soon...and a Wolverine flick, depending on the scale, could be made by Singer before late next year".

The scoop got an extra boost this weekend with comments from Hugh Jackman saying that Singer "is the preferred director but there is a major timing issue in the production".

If it's more like X3, I'll pass. If it's more like X-men and X2...I'll probably still pass. I'm not a Wolverine fan.

Whilst talking with Jonathon Ross on the BBC, actor Brian Cox confirmed that his character from "X-Men 2" is in the "Wolverine" script.

However things may not be progressing so rosily on the production. Seems that he was asked to be in it, but "that was a while ago now, it's completely stalled so no start date as yet".

The film is set seventeen years in the past. As Hugh Jackman's character doesn't age there's no issue there, but he expects to be the subject of the anti-aging technology used for the opening sequence of the third film if he's a part of it.

It's eccentric vs. disappointing in the race to helm the upcoming "Wolverine" spin-off feature film for 20th Century Fox.

The IESB reports that there are two names on the short list of directors the studio has in mind - DJ Caruso & Len Wiseman.

Caruso has been a player in the movie field for many years, initially a producer of mid-90's thrillers like "Drop Zone," "Point of No Return" and "Nick of Time." Lately though he's been more known for his directorial work on films like "Taking Lives," "The Salton Sea," "Two for the Money" and the recent hit "Disturbia". He's also worked on shows like "The Shield" and "Smallville."

Len Wiseman on the other hand is still a fresh face, mostly known for his work writing and directing the "Underworld" movies, his movie star looks, and a gorgeous wife in the form of Kate Beckinsale. His first major job is this Summer's upcoming "Live Free or Die Hard."

Caruso seems to be the favourite, but is being highly sought by others at the moment. If "Die Hard" is a success for Fox however, it makes sense for Wiseman to be attached.

David Goyer has already signed on to direct the "Magneto" spin-off movie.

WOLVERINE
"Underworld" director Len Wiseman heads to bigger budget action fare with the upcoming "Live Free or Die Hard" which he helmed. How well it does will impact where he may go from there, but one of the most likely places is at the helm of the first "X-Men" spin-off "Wolverine" it seems.

"'Wolverine' is something I was interested in way before I was talking to these guys about 'Die Hard'" he tells Superhero Hype. "I think it would be a great story to tell, and in the case of that film, it wouldn't be [as big] in terms of large-scale action, but it's something I'm interested in, in his origin story and the character story with that, and I know how Hugh would play it, and that would be awesome."

He adds "So that would be my passion for that is that I think the character story is really cool, and I'd love to see it and be there the first day [it opens] anyway. There's so many things that have been going on and I know that there are so many other directors. There's nothing set in any fashion, but it has been talked about."

"Live Free or Die Hard" opens on Wednesday.

WOLVERINE: Gavin Hood ("Tsotsi," "Rendition") is set to direct the X-Men spin-off "Wolverine" for 20th Century Fox reports the trades.

Penned by David Benioff, the story explores the origins of the hairy mutant with retractable metal claws from the "X-Men" films.

Hugh Jackman reprises the title role in this spin-off which mixes action with an origin story about how Logan emerged from a barbaric experiment that gave him the claws - something glimpsed in flashback during the "X-Men" films.

A Fall start date is being set. Lauren Shuler Donner, Jackman and John Palermo are producing the movie.

Wizard Online has posted up an interview with "Wolverine" scribe David Benioff who went into some juicy new details of what to expect in the "X-Men" spin-off feature.

Benioff admits his favorite stories from the comics, which he re-read before writing the script, were "Chris Claremont and Frank Miller miniseries, and the Barry Windsor-Smith Weapon X." Story elements from these are likely to be incorporated in the film.

We will see Wolverine’s first ties to Weapon X, his time in Vietnam, his first run-in with Victor Creed (aka Sabretooth), a love interest, his bonding with adamantium and fellow mutants like John Wraith and The Blob.

As for his early-year comic book connections to Japan? "[The Japan connection] is still something we really want to do. What we need to do is establish who he is and find out how he became Wolverine. And by the end of the movie, I want it to be that you definitely knew who this guy was, like Mad Max and Dirty Harry. He’s a good guy, but he’s not a nice guy. He’s just the guy you want on your side."
