....among other things.  Yeah, they spelled it wrong.  Yeah what else is new....

Before talks hit the rocks late last week, Vaughn had developed a creative partnership with original X-Men director Bryan Singer, who hatched an origin story that he was going to direct until Warner Bros locked him in for Jack The Giant Killer and Fox couldn't wait. The film has undergone a late stage rewrite by Ashley Miller & Jack Stentz, the duo that did the same thing on another marvel property, Thor. Singer will produce with Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg.

So, since the article is written about as clear as mud, does this in fact mean you two are going to do something with X-Men?

Like, you know, make it GOOD?  FINALLY?????

Wow, way cool!

But... if it's Zack's evil twin working with Ash, are we all doomed? :)

For the record, working with Jack has been one of the great professional experiences of my life. Who knew Zack's brother was so smart, talented and easy with a joke? Thanks Zack for taking it all so well. I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.

They appear to have fixed it.  Said Zack when I read it just now.

Oh, and by the way. HOLY CRAP!  That's some of the best news I've heard in a while.

Yeah they fixed it.  I've also seen them say "Zach" or "Zac".

Personally I think Jack and Evil LOP are engaged in a plot to subvert the entertainment industry to implement rule by purple pixies.

I haven't seen them.  Do they have goatees?  That's a dead giveaway if they do.
