    SHH is saying this movie is still happening.

    Is shooting in Japan all that necessary? I mean, if we can make Prague look like every city in the universe, surely there's somewhere that can stand in for Japan with a little extra construction and effects work.

    It's probably not necessary but they were going for authenticity as possible I believe.

    And some of the money hiring people will probably go to relief efforts

    I think filming it in Japan would be good for Japan. Certainly help bring some money in that can help with the relief efforts.

    If they had to film somewhere else, I'm sure there are places in Korea that could fill the job (places with Japanese colonial influences).

    I found this list of 5 directors who could replace Aronofsky as they are the best at what they do. Well according to movieline.com.

    I would love to see what Wachowskis Brothers would do with "The Wolverine". Or any of the other 4 directors.

    I think we should officially erase the internet to ensure this idea never gets implanted in any executive's head.

    What a terrible, terrible idea. And the rest of those directors aren't exactly appropriate to the material, either. Except maybe Kitano.

    If that's the way it's going down, good for Aronofsky.

    If more really talented directors declined to be part of the grind-em-out-blockbuster machine that Hollywood has become and did their own things the quality of movies would increase exponentially.

    That's not going to happen, but it's still nice to occasionally see someone remember what the point of making all that money is.

    Yet they were describing The Wolverine as NOT a sequel, as being a standalone movie in its own right. I always thought that was a bit silly and if this report is correct, perhaps so did Aronofsky ...


    Edit - David Slade says there have been no discussions about him replacing DA:

    Even though their last three movies were almost universally panned (I haven't seen "The Matrix Revolutions" or "Speed Racer"), I still think they're talented. If you doubt it, watch "Bound" and "The Matrix" again. They could still make a comeback/rebound with a good movie and surprise you.

    Eh, The Wolverine doesn't strike me as any more inherently silly than Black Swan. :p

    Regardless of silliness, no one is able to make a summer blockbuster superhero movie as an auteur vehicle. There is always a ton of studio influence and the whole thing tends to be much more of a group effort - perhaps that's not what the guy is looking for at this point in his career.

    While I don't think they've never exhibited any talent...though I think an argument can be made in the "some folk only have so much in them" vein and that they're creative well has been drained...I also just don't think they're appropriate directors for the material. If there's one thing this Wolverine definitely needs less of, it's "flash," which is what The Wachowski's are best at.

    I think both The Dark Knight and the first Iron Man were much more auteur vehicles than you realize.

    I think they just need to make $60 million movies instead of $200 million movies. They need limits to keep them in check.

    The Matrix Revolutions was pretty bad, but I found Speed Racer to be a very fun family film.

    What about the guy who directed Babel, Alejandro González Iñárritu?

    Kind of disappointed that Aronofsky won't be part of this project anymore, but I won't write it off completely unless they just pick someone really awful to take the reins.
