‘Wolverine’ Is Not Mark Romanek’s Kind Of Thing

Mark Romanek never got his chance to make The Wolfman so we were excited when he was put on the short list for another movie about a hairy guy with claws… Weston Coppola The Wolverine. But, alas, Romanek will not be stepping into the flowy directing scarf left vacant by Darren Aronofsky. Here’s the straight dope from Romanek:

“That’s just one of those stories that floated around. I was on their list, I received the script months ago. It didn’t seem like my kind of thing. That script was a terrific version of that kind of thing, but not something I felt really passionate about.”

That leaves us with Jose Padilha, Doug Liman (Mr. and Mrs. Smith), Antoine Fuqua (Training Day), Justin Lin (Fast Five), Gavin O’Connor, James Mangold (Knight and Day) and Gary Shore as potentials. I think Liman or Mangold could turn in an interesting film, but you just know it’s going to be Justin Lin. If we get another two X-Men films back-to-back the moon will shift into alignment and then we’ll have Cthulhu to deal with. (Digital Spy)
