^ Yeah but I wouldn't say to the same extent that they are going about this one. David Benioff had his script messed around with many times before it even hit production, the addition of the mutant cameos being one of the things. I don't think this will be the case with McQuarrie's script. I really don't think Aronofsky will let Fox push him around the way Gavin Hood might have.
I don't know if we can say that for sure.
I'm pretty sure every script goes thru revisions.
His work before this has mostly been with independent divisions of studios. "The Fountain" which was a major studio release tanked. With Marvel being now part of Disney, if FOX doesn't have say are we sure Marvel/Disney won't? I'm sure they still wanna sell those toys.

I'm not saying it isn't possible to be a good movie, I'm just not counting my chickens before they hatch. Even the greatest director & script writer can produce a misfire. Aronofsky has shown he can do realistic drama but Wolvie is fiction and may not be his strong point.

Re: Aronofsky's Wolverine film title announced

Every script does go through revisions yes and most likely McQuarrie's would have or will as well but from what was posted on the plot a few pages ago and what little we know so far I'm inclined to suggest that "The Wolverine" will be the film that fans were anticipating with "X-Men Origins: Wolverine". Another reason I think Fox injected all of those mutant cameos was maybe because they were testing to see how well fans responded to them. We know a "Deadpool" film is on the way that won't use the version of the character that Wolverine used. I believe that "Gambit" script was written or at least considered. A new version of Emma Frost (the proper version it would seem) is being used in "X-Men: First Class".

All I know is that when Aronfosky's name was being bandied about my interest level went through the roof.

Exactly, that was one nice looking trippy mess of a movie.

Well, lets hope you're not setting yourself up for a big fall.
Roofing shingles aren't very good padding for that type of impact.

Re: Aronofsky's Wolverine film title announced

Not sure where to put this news as I did the search and found this and the Hugh Jackman Wolverine thread but it turns out:

Darren Aronofsky will no longer be directing The Wolverine.

http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=75358

DAMNIT ALL TO HELL! This is like Mathew Vaughn and X3 all over again.

Well, my limited enthusiasm for this project just flatlined... I hope whoever comes on board next can revive it.

Re: Aronofsky's Wolverine film title announced

what the fuck/

I mean, only a month ago Aronofsky seemed very much involved that he was even making comments about Jackman's physique.

This is disappointing.

Bite your tongue.

Disappointing news. I vote that Chris McQuarrie, who scripted it, take over directing duties.
