Days after Dean Winter was announced as co-lead of Breaking Bad czar Vince Gilligan's new CBS drama Battle Creek, the Wrap is reporting that Bryan Singer, of X-Men and The Usual Suspects fame, will direct the pilot episode. The show, which will also feature Kal Penn and Janet McTeer as well as a yet unannounced second lead, concerns two polar opposite detectives working out of a Michigan town.
