Darren Aronofsky leaves “The Wolverine”
Director Darren Aronofsky has officially left “The Wolverine” movie.
An official statement from 20th Century Fox reads:
Darren Aronofsky: “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. 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.”
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.”
What does this mean for the movie? Are these the real reasons why Aronofsky left the film? Hopefully this doesn’t throw too big of a wrench into what might be an excellent Wolverine movie. So far 20th Century Fox is stumbling with Marvel IPs. X-Men: First Class is being met with not so favorable reaction. Time will tell.
