Hugh Jackman Talks Darren Aronofsky Involvement With The Wolverine
Long ago, Darren Aronofsky headed the “The Wolverine”, is also due to him that the film as the current title, a title that Hugh Jackman liked and wanted to leave so accordingly.
The filmmaker was working creatively in the project some time ago (when he was involved, the film was to begin shooting in September 2011 or earlier), but abandoned the project of his own accord in March 2011 , citing personal reasons (not wanting to leave his family for as long as he was in Japan shooting), while other rumors pointed to lack of control he had over the project.
In a new interview, Jackman, far from offering new information on the new movie, spoke mainly Aronofsky, who he cited to repeat the idea that the script for “The Wolverine” is one of the best out there . It’s an idea that Jackman already said several times and repeats whenever possible, and now we found out that apparently Aronofsky shared his enthusiasm.
It’s a wonderful idea, which is why Darren was interested in doing it. He had been looking for a movie for a long time and said it was the best script we had read. It did not work in the end for many complicated reasons, but it was kind of a comfort to me to know we were on the right track.
Other details that the actor and also producer of the film spoke about, are what we has said on numerous occasions: that it will be a story “independent” and that he felt that the previous individual movie did not do justice to the character.
The Wolverine will be directed by James Mangold (Knight and Day), from a script written by Christopher McQuarrie.. The cast includes: Hugh Jackamn (Logan/Wolverine), Svetlana Khodchenkova (Viper), Hiroyuki Sanada (Shingen), Hal Yamanouchi (Yashida), Tao Okamoto (Mariko), Rila [frick]ushima (Yukio), Brian Tee (Norubo Mori), and Will Yun Lee (Kenuichio Harada/Silver Samurai). The film will claw into theaters July 26, 2013.
