Jackman: Aronofsky Directing 'Wolverine 2'
NYmag.com reports that Hugh Jackman seems to have confirmed that Darren Aronofsky will be directing WOLVERINE 2.
Regarding Aronofky’s darker approach to filmmaking Jackman said:
“This is Wolverine, this is not Popeye. He’s kind of dark. But, you know, this is a change of pace. Chris McQuarrie, who wrote THE USUAL SUSPECTS, has written the script, so that’ll give you a good clue… There’s going to be some meat on the bones. There will be something to think about as you leave the theater, for sure.
This is, hopefully for me, going to be out of the box. It’s going to be the best one, I hope. Well, I would say that, but I really do feel that, and I feel this is going to be very different.”
Interviewed at a function for Elton John’s Enduring Vision Foundation, the actor also spoke about getting into training for the film, saying he’ll be back to eating six meals a day to bulk up.
