Bryan Singer discusses why Taylor Lautner is not in X-Men: First Class
The first thing he talked about was why The Twilight Saga star Taylor Lautner wasn't going to be in his superhero opus.
"I wanted Taylor [Lautner]
to do it, I really did," Singer
stated. "He's doing a movie in Pittsburgh called Abduction
and then he's got the next Twilight
movie. We talked about it a lot, he is a friend, and I really wanted to make it work. It just doesn't look like it's possible to do it."
It also looks like Meagan Good is up for a role but Singer didn't say which one.
He also talked down rumors about him possibly directing Wolverine 2.
"It's not what I'm going to do right now, the next project for me next year, in London, is Jack the Giant Killer
that is set in the 1300s and it's very fun. It will be a big movie."
X-Men: First Class was released June 3rd, 2011 and stars James McAvoy, Laurence Belcher, Michael Fassbender, Bill Milner, Kevin Bacon, Rose Byrne, Jennifer Lawrence, Beth Goddard. The film is directed by Matthew Vaughn.
