Wolverine 2 Director?

Wolverine 2 Director?

20th Century Fox are reportedly in talks with Darren Aronofsky to take on directing duties for the next Wolverine film starring Hugh Jackman. Comingsoon have confirmed the discussions regarding the next film rumoured to be centred around a forbidden romance and based in Japan. You may remember one of the post-credits scenes in the first film revealed Logan at a bar after having travelled to Japan.

Aronofsky directed the critically acclaimed film ‘The Wrestler’ released in 2008, he also directed ‘Requiem for a Dream’ in 2000. His latest film ‘Black Swan’, stars Natalie Portman and is scheduled for release in 2010.

Aronofsky is a talented director, it would be interesting to see his take on the character, I found the first film to be quite disappointing in a lot of respects so if Aronofsky is confirmed to direct, hopefully things will move in the right direction.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
