Latest Darren Aronofsky News: He Will Direct Wolverine 2 And Make A Boatload Of Cash

Word on the street is that Darren Aronofsky will reunite with Hugh Jackman for “X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2”. The two first worked together on “The Fountain” in 2006.

Aronofsky has recently been linked to Warner Bros. “Tales From the Gangster Squad”, which he passed on, and was one of the swirl of big names flying around the latest version of “Superman”, which went to Zack Snyder instead. While Aronofsky gave up his entire upront salary for “Black Swan”, it is reported that his paycheck will hover around the $5 million mark for his first foray into the superhero realm. That must be nice.

Christopher McQuarrie (“The Usual Suspects”, “The Tourist”) wrote the script. Between Aronofsky and that, let’s hope that the sequel is better than the original.
