The director of the first two films, Bryan Singer, has opted to jump ship in order to direct the first chapter of Warner Brothers' new Superman series. Many of the series regulars (including Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry) are expected to return for the second sequel; Simon Kinberg and Zac Penn are writing the script. Vaughn, a noted British producer, is the man behind the festival-hopping gangster pic, Layer Cake.
