In an article announcing a two-year deal between Fox Filmed Entertainment and Darren Aronofsky, ComingSoon.net reports that the director will start filming The Wolverine in April. Oscar-winner Christopher McQuarrie wrote the script for the film, which will star Hugh Jackman.
"Darren's vision has brought audiences some of the most original and memorable stories and characters in recent motion picture history," said Fox Searchlight heads, Steve Gilula and Nancy Utley. "We at Fox witnessed this first hand with his work on 'The Wrestler,' and 'Black Swan,' and now, on 'The Wolverine,' which will be an exciting take on that iconic figure and on the genre itself. We can't wait to see what else Darren has in store for us."
