EXCL: Len Wiseman on Wolverine

Len Wiseman has already made a name for himself with the success of the “Underworld” movies and next Wednesday, his take on the “Die Hard” franchise, Live Free or Die Hard will open globally. Since he’s already in good with 20th Century Fox, we wondered whether he’d be interested in helming the Wolverine prequel for which he’d been rumored as one of the contenders to direct.

“‘Wolverine’ is something I was interested in way before I was talking to these guys about ‘Die Hard,'” he told Superhero Hype!. “I think it would be a great story to tell, and in the case of that film, it wouldn’t be [as big] in terms of large-scale action, but it’s something I’m interested in, in his origin story and the character story with that, and I know how Hugh would play it, and that would be awesome. So that would be my passion for that is that I think the character story is really cool, and I’d love to see it and be there the first day [it opens] anyway. There’s so many things that have been going on and I know that there are so many other directors. There’s nothing set in any fashion, but it has been talked about.”
