Darren Aronofsky originally was attached, but pulled out because the movie, which was to shoot in Japan, would have kept him away from home for too long
Fox may have found the director to tame “The Wolverine.”
Duncan Jones, who directed this year’s “Source Code” — and is David Bowie’s son — is looking at the job.
It’s all very early, but the “Moon” director’s name has been popping up as a potential “Wolverine” director quite a bit lately. And he told IGN that he might do it.
“Who knows what’ll be coming up next,” he said. “I have a lot of meetings and catching-up to do when I get back to L.A.”
He confirmed that one of those meetings is with Fox, where he’ll talk about “The Wolverine.”
Darren Aronofsky was originally attached to direct, but he pulled out in March because of scheduling issues.Then, the earthquake and tsunami hit Japan, where the movie was set to shoot, and the film was put on hold.
In Christopher McQuarrie's screenplay, Wolverine goes to Japan to learn from a Samurai master.
Hugh Jackman will star.
