'X-Men 3' close to finding director

By
20th Century Fox and Marvel Fox have reportedly narrowed down their choice of director for X-Men 3 to two names.

Matthew Vaughn (Layer Cake) was previously supposed to be helming the production, but he pulled out earlier this week because he did not want to spend as much time away from his family as the project would have demanded.

Ain't-It-Cool-News reports that the short-list for his replacement comprises of John Moore (Behind Enemy Lines) and Brett Ratner (Red Dragon).

Stars Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Famke Janssen and Alan Cumming will reprise their roles in the movie, whilst Kelsey Grammer and Vinnie Jones have signed up to play Beast and Juggernaut.
