THE WOLVERINE Director Shortlist Revealed

     Since Darren Aronofsky's departure from THE WOLVERINE, 20th Century Fox has been searching for someone with comparable filmmaking chops to take on the project. Names such as David Slade and Duncan Jones have been suggested as potential replacement, and Jones has even met with Fox about the film.

     Variety has published the studio's shortlist of possible directors for the film - and, notably, neither Slade nor Jones can be found on it. The directors run the gamut in background and usual genre in which they operate, from action to thriller to drama. Check out the list below:

  • Antoine Fuqua (TRAINING DAY, KING ARTHUR, SHOOTER, BROOKLYN'S FINEST)
  • Doug Liman (SWINGERS, GO, THE BOURNE IDENTITY, MR. AND MRS. SMITH)
  • Justin Lin (FAST AND FURIOUS, FAST FIVE)
  • James Mangold (WALK THE LINE, 3:10 TO YUMA, KNIGHT & DAY)
  • Jose Padilha (ELITE SQUAD 1, ELITE SQUAD 2)
  • Gavin O'Connor (PRIDE AND GLORY)
  • Mark Romanek (ONE HOUR PHOTO, NEVER LET ME GO)
  • Gary Shore (commercials)
