"Jack The Giant Slayer" Lost Warner Brothers Over $125 Million

         ‘Jack The Giant Slayer’ Lost Warner Bros Over $125 Million

Bryan Singer has ventured into the territory of Michael Cimino and "Heaven's Gate." The failure of "Jack The Giant Slayer" raises serious questions about Bryan Singer's prospects of not only directing "X-Men: Days of Future Past", but also his chances of ever directing large budget movies ever again.

The way Hollywood works...if you have a flop like this, you won't be given the chance ever again to direct multi-million dollar movies.

I suspect, that if "X-Men: Days of Future Past" gets made at all, the directing credits will become seriously blurred. After the failure of "Jack The Giant Slayer", it just doesn't make sense that Bryan Singer would have full authoritative reign over another multi-million dollar movie (X-Men: DOFP.) This isn't the way Hollywood works. When a movie like "Jack The Giant Slayer" flops at the box office, the director gets blamed and is demoted by Hollywood. So, I see multiple assistant directors, and other principal photography directors being brought in on short notice (in response to the failure of "Jack The Giant Slayer") to "cough"...assist Bryan Singer in directing "X-Men: Days of Future Past." Each one of them having equal authority and equal weight in the decision making processes on the set as Bryan Singer. If in fact, Singer really is directing this thing. If he really is directing this thing, then I suspect he is going to have a lot of....."cough"...."helpers".....on the set. With executives from 20th Century Fox making more frequent visits to the set of "X-Men: Days of Future Past" than usual. Of course, we would never hear about this from the Internet news or anywhere else if in fact this is what could transpire.
