Hugh Jackman confirms Aronofsky for Wolverine 2

The Fountain

X-Men Origins: Wolverine may have turned out to be something of a filmic duff note, but considering the amount of buzz surrounding its sequel, hopes are high that star Hugh Jackman can pull an ace out of his sleeve.

That’s looking more and more likely, especially as Jackman has just confirmed that Darren Aronofsky is officially directing Wolverine 2 .

The pair worked together previously on 2006's epic love story The Fountain .

“This is a change of pace,” Jackman promises. “Chris McQuarrie, who wrote The Usual Suspects , has written the script, so that’ll give you a good clue.

“[ Aronofsky’s ] going to make it fantastic. There’s going to be some meat on the bones. There will be something to think about as you leave the theatre, for sure.”

With Aronofsky having really come into his own with films like The Wrestler and the upcoming Black Swan , we really can't wait to see what he does with a comic book adaptation.
