Who Will Direct X-Men: First Class?

Last night reports began surfacing that 20th Century Fox was close to signing on Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn to helm X-Men: First Class. Shortly thereafter, those reports were shot down. So who's going to direct the next entry into the X-Men franchise? Great question. There are a bunch of names floating around, including Timur Bekmambetov, Louis Leterrier, David Slade, Daniel Espinoza, and Carl Erick Rinsch. Fox is expected to choose one of the names out of a hat by next week and start shooting this summer. [Deadline]
