Bryan Singer - Bryan Singer in talks for X-Men: Apocalypse

Bryan Singer is still in negotiations to direct 'X-Men: Apocalypse'.

The 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' director confirmed a 2016 sequel to the upcoming flick last month, but he has admitted while he will produce and co-write the feature, he hasn't yet signed on to helm the next movie.

He told Entertainment Weekly: ''I'm co-writing the story and I'm producing it. I'm negotiating to direct. We're in the process. We're trying to figure it out ... schedules. My desire would be to direct it.''

Singer will write the script with 'Days of Future Past' scribe Simon Kinberg and the writers of 2003's 'X2', Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty.

'Apocalypse' will focus on the origins of the franchise's mutant race, the director also confirmed.

He explained: ''It will also address historical mutant-cy, meaning the deep past, mutant origins and things like that. It's something that's always intrigued me when we think about our gods and our history and miracles and powers.''

In the 'X-Men' comic books, Apocalypse refers to a villainous rival, who is the world's first mutant.

Singer is currently preparing for the release of his upcoming 'X-Men' blockbuster 'Days of Future Past', which will unite the cast of the original 'X-Men' trilogy and the stars of 2011 prequel 'X-Men: First Class'.

The star-studded film will feature Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Sir Patrick Stewart, Sir Ian McKellen, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender.
