Singer pushed off the ship, Vaughan declines, Fox wants to get the movie out ASAP... Brett Ratner hired to direct X-Men: The Last Stand.

Singer has a conflicting project, Vaughan declines, Fox wants to get the movie out ASAP... [INSERT NAME HERE] hired to direct X-Men: First Class.

Actually, I believe Singer voluntarily left X-Men 3. Warner Bros. offered him a sweeter deal with Superman, and so he accepted. However, you could say that 20th Century Fox was dicking him around by prolonging the negotiation process for X-Men 3 so it was their pis-spoor management that led to Singer's departure. Singer was more than willing to direct X3 had Fox waited for him.

My thought as well if FOX wants to get this movie out quickly as possible AKA a hacked and rushed job.

He left for creative reasons. He felt like he couldn't make the film the way he wanted to given the constrictions and limitations. That's why he left.
90 minute rush job for summer.

Vaughn is back in the running! Apparently he's the frontrunner.

Hell yeah! I'm stoked. Matthew Vaughn AND Bryan Singer working on the same film?

It's too good to be true.
