‘Wolverine’ Sequel Being Held Back…Again?

First losing a director, and now this.

After falling victim to a bit of a delay following the departure of then director Darren Aronofsky, the much talked about sequel, The Wolverine, may have to wait even longer to see the light of day.

In speaking to HitFix, producer Lauren Shuler Donner revealed that the film will likely be shooting in the late summer of next year, as star Hugh Jackman is more than a tad bit busy. With films like Les Miserables taking up a block of Jackman’s time, the actor doesn’t seem to be able to fit the franchise onto his plate for quite some time.

  |  @   |  

As strange as it was to think that Darren Aronofsky””director behind indie hits like Requiem For A Dream, The Wrestler, and Black Swan“”was going to direct a sequel to X–Men Origins: Wolverine, it was still pretty intriguing to think about. But alas, Aronofsky eventually had to drop out of the project due to personal reasons, leaving the job open for another…but would they be similar to the departing Aronofsky or someone more suited to the comic book/action genre a Wolverine movie would play in?

Enter James Mangold, the new director chosen by 20th Century Fox to direct the sequel, titled The Wolverine. Mangold’s résumé does include an action flick””the recent Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz feature Knight & Day“”but the rest of his works are mostly drama–based with titles like Cop Land, Kate & Leopold, Identity, 3:10 to Yuma, and Academy Award winners Girl, Interrupted and Walk the Line under his belt.

Darren Aronofsky Forced To Exit ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ Sequel
  |  @   |  

Two of the stranger announcements of recent memory involved Requiem for a Dream, The Wrestler, and Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky. One was when we were informed that he would be directing a remake of RoboCop and the other was news that he was going to take on a sequel to the not-so-popular comic book spin-off X-Men Origins: Wolverine, titled The Wolverine.

Now comes word, unfortunately, that Aronofsky has decided to step away from the movie, though it seems as though he had little choice in the matter.
