    'Wolverine' Sequel May Have To Wait Several More Months for Hugh Jackman (Maybe Summer 2012)

    Matthew Vaughn Expected To Return For Another 'X-Men: First Class Sequel'While making the rounds to promote the home video release of the surprisingly fun "X-Men: First Class" (tomorrow is "First Friday" or something, 20th Century Fox is making a huge over-done fuss out of this release in hopes to drum up some more revenue, sheesh), producer Lauren Shuler Donner -- who we're sure is a nice lady but on the special features portion of the Blu-ray disc looks like some kind of horrifying wax sculpture brought to life by dark magic to inflict deadly harm on the land of the living -- let loose some details about other projects set within the "X-Men...

    'Total Recall' Scribe Mark Bomback To Rewrite 'The Wolverine'; Viper To Play A Bigger Role

    With the start date of "The Wolverine" recently being pushed from this fall until next spring (so that Hugh Jackman can star in Tom Hooper's "Les Miserables"), the filmmakers are making the curious decision to rewrite the Christopher McQuarrie script that, according to everybody, was great and good to go before Darren Aronofksy bailed and the earthquake shook Japan. Typical Fox meddling? A need for more explosions? Unnecessary tinkering? Or truly making it the best story it can be? It's probably a bit of each, but fans should be worried as Variety reports that Mark Bomback, the man behind "Live Free Or Die Hard," "Unstoppable" and next year's...

    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...

    Mark Romanek Says He's Already Turned Down 'The Wolverine'

    Ryan Reynolds Confirms 'Deadpool' Will Be 'Nasty,' 'Hard' And 'Cheap'Showing a remarkable amount of diplomacy, director Mark Romanek has confirmed, as reported a few weeks back, that he was a contender for Fox's already-troubled "The Wolverine" but that he has long since turned down the opportunity. Speaking about the Marvel sequel, he tells DigitalSpy, "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." Given that Romanek is a picky and sometimes prickly director, one who famously bailed on his only other big studio assignment merely weeks before...

    Weekend Box Office: $56 Million 'First Class' Opening Isn't X-actly What Fox Had In Mind

    As the only major opening of the week, it was not a surprise to see “X-Men: First Class” reign with a $56 million total. For those keeping track at home (why are you doing this?), this is the lowest-scoring opening weekend for any of the four films in the “X-Men” series save for the eleven-year old ...

    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...
