Director Bryan Singer is eyeing a return to the X-Men franchise - because he would love to work with Hugh Jackman again.
The Usual Suspects filmmaker helmed the first two installments in the comic book movie series, but turned down the chance to direct the third film so he could work on 2006's Superman Returns.
But after seeing X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the prequel which documented the life of Jackman's mutant character, Singer admits he is in talks with Fox studios about being put in charge of another spin-off.
He says, "I'm still looking to possibly returning to the 'X-Men' franchise. I've been talking to Fox about it. I love Hugh Jackman. I love the cast.
"The excitement about working in science fiction and fantasy is - the stories, if they are good, are about the human condition."
