The rumour mills were running overtime after the report that Matthew Vaughan had pulled out of directing X-Men 3.
Well, now Comic Book Movie is breaking the news that Brett Ratner will now be taking over. This is shitty news, since Ratner is a shitty director. This could very well have the same outcome as when Joel Schumacher took over the Batman series. (via The Movie Blog)
Also, in X-Men casting news, Kelsey "Frasier" Grammer has been cast as Beast, and Maggie Grace of Lost will be paying Kitty Pride.
