Nerds everywhere are crying into their X-Men comics. Darren Aronofsky, director of Black Swan and The Wrestler has announced he won't be directing The Wolverine. And what's his excuse for being so damn lazy? Apparently his oh-so-special family is more important to him.
The movie, starring Hugh Jackman, was a continuation of the X-Men character's story, and it was to take place in Japan and have a samurai subplot.
"As I talked more about the film with my collaborators at Fox, it became clear that the production of The Wolverine would keep me out of the country for almost a year. I was not comfortable being away from my family for that length of time," Aronofsky said.
Because the idea of Aronofsky directing a movie about Wolverine makes my face want to explode, I think they should just change the plot to accommodate the director.
How about this? Wolverine finds himself living in Venice Beach, where he starts a career as a Reggae musician. He has a dog that rides a skateboard and works part time at a medical marijuana dispensary...
