    James Mangold To Direct 'The Wolverine'

    After a period where it looked as if Fox would take a mulligan on "The Wolverine" and bump the film to 2013 or beyond, it now looks like they've found their director. James Mangold, who has dabbled in various genres from musical biopic ("Walk The Line"), to western ("3:10 To Yuma") and horror ("Identity"), is prepared to take on his first comic book adaptation, and the announcement suggests he's the mutual pick from Fox and Hugh Jackman's camp. Mangold appears to be the top choice among an uninspired trio of potential helmers that included Antoine Fuqua and Gavin O'Connor, otherwise known as Guys You Employ When They Are Represented By The Sa...

    Doug Liman, Mark Romanek, James Mangold & Antoine Fuqua Reportedly Top The 'Wolverine' Wishlist

    Other Directors Apparently In Contention For The Gig Include, Justin Lin, Jose Padilha, Gavin O'Connor & Gary Shore20th Century Fox has a history and it's not always a good one. While Darren Aronofsky left "The Wolverine" project under the pretenses of family obligations, it's been reported that "Black Swan" director left the project due to lack of creative control. That coupled with the fact that Matthew Vaughn seems to have been put through the ringer by the studio on "X-Men: First Class" -- he was super rushed, was forced to use five different cinematographers, had to switch assistant directors and didn't know who his crew was on certain d...

    Antoine Fuqua To Helm Chinese-Language Historical Love Story Epic

    We've written about Antoine Fuqua a fair amount in recent times, only for it to amount to very little in the way of a follow-up to 2007's "Shooter." Among other things, the "Training Day" director has been plotting a biopic of rapper Tupac (which recently began an open casting call), an adaptation of comic book "Afterburn" starring Gerard Butler, a pilot at FOX starring Ethan Hawke from a script by David Guggenheim and superteam Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, and he previously flirted with a reunion with Bruce Willis on prison-escape drama "The Tomb," as well as having the buzzed-about actioner "Prisoners" with Hugh Jackman and a spy-thrille...

    The past few days have seen some pretty ridiculous music movie stories circulating, which should serve as a general reminder to bloggers everywhere of a rule that you can't forget: if the story sounds too good to be true and originates from the British press, triple check your sources.
