This is terrible news. The first Wolverine movie was an unbearable mess, and i had high hopes for what Aronofsky could bring to the superhero genre. Man, this is one of those things we’ll be talking about for a long time, what could have been. The likelihood of this movie turning out to be a massive turd has just risen exponentially. Hit the Jump for quotes from Fox and 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.”
“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.”
