Variety reported today that screenwriters Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty, the duo responsible for the "X2: X-Men United" screenplay, will join "X-Men" director Bryan Singer as writers of Marvel's "Ultimate X-Men."

Details are sketchy, but what's known is writer David Mack is set to take over "Ultimate X-Men" with issue #51 this November and presumably the trio will debut their work after his run. According to Variety, Harris and Dougherty are currently hard at work adapting Orson Scott Card's "Ender's Game," with Wolfgang Petersen ("In The Line of Fire," "Air Force One") set to direct. Once the due is finished with that they'll begin work on one years worth of "Ultimate X-Men" scripts and then launch into writing "X3," which Bryan Singer will direct. No further details were available at press time.
