‘X3’ moving on sans Vaughn

Shortly before location scouting was to have begun on “X3,” director Matthew Vaughn (“Layer Cake”) has left the movie, citing family reasons, 20th Century Fox said Tuesday. In a statement, the studio said the London-based Vaughn had planned to travel between his home and the film’s Vancouver locations, but “as the shooting schedule evolved, he realized he would have to move to Los Angeles and Vancouver for at least a year. Not wishing to uproot his family for an extended period, Vaughn opted to depart the production.”
