Wolverine 2 - Darren Aronofsky Steps Down as Director

Labels: ,

Wolverine 2 (aka The Wolverine) was not yet greenlit by FOX, but Darren Aronofsky was planning to direct the movie, until today when he and FOX issued a joint statement saying he will no longer direct the movie, because he would be out of the country too long?

Interesting timing if you ask me, because some of the movie was supposedly schedule to be filmed in Japan.

Here are some more details from THR:

"As I talked more about the film with my collaborators at Fox, it became clear that the production of The Wolverine would keep me out of the country for almost a year,” Aronofsky said in a joint statement with Fox.

“I was not comfortable being away from my family for that length of time. I am sad that I won't be able to see the project through, as it is a terrific script and I was very much looking forward to working with my friend, Hugh Jackman, again,” he continued.

Stated Fox: “While we are of course disappointed that Darren can’t do The Wolverine, we also understand and respect his reasons. Having done both The Wrestler and Black Swan with Darren, we know he is an extraordinary talent and we look forward to working with him on other projects in the future. Hugh Jackman and Fox both remain fully committed to making The Wolverine. We will regroup and move forward aggressively.”
