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.
