The film that [DARREN ARONOFSKY is] directing is officially called “The Wolverine,” and there won’t be a number attached to it.

…He referred to the movie as a “one-off,” and he emphasized that the film isn’t a sequel in any conventional sense.

‘X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE’ was utter shit but you really gotta hand it to HUGH JACKMAN. That he seems to love the character is of little doubt – and that’s a refreshing change of pace taking into consideration a Marvel property like HULK.

Bringing Aronofky on board shows that Jackman wants to make the Wolverine movie we all want to see. Now let’s see if they can deliver.

With Darren Aronofsky directing, [HUGH JACKMAN] says that Wolverine 2 will not be a “usual” X-Men movie:

“This is, hopefully for me, going to be out of the box. It’s going to be the best one, I hope.”

Also:

“Chris McQuarrie, who wrote THE USUAL SUSPECTS, has written the script, so that’ll give you a good clue [as to overall tone of the movie between screenwriter and director].”

SPIDER-MAN Reboot Update: Villian Revealed – RHYS IFANS To Play THE LIZARD

RHYS IFANS

Or should we say IFANS – who was just confirmed for the role of the villian a couple days ago – is playing the guy who turns into the Lizard. This wouldn’t be the first time producers involved with the franchise have flirted with having the Lizard as the principle foe in a SPIDER-MAN movie as THRALL WORLD posted late last year just before SONY decided to scrap everything and start over with a new creative team and cast.

No confirmation from SONY just yet but word on the street is that:

Rhys Ifans will play Dr. Curt Connors, better known as The Lizard, in Marc Webb’s “Spider-Man.”

It’s Official: EMMA STONE As GWEN STACY In New SPIDER-MAN Reboot

There seemed to be some confusion on the part of the interwebz about whether or not red-haired EMMA STONE would play red-haired MARY JANE WATSON or blond-haired GWEN STACY.

Regardless of the hair, Stone has been slected to portray the role of GWEN STACY. And there seems to be a lot of importance attached to this casting so THRALL WORLD is led to believe that MJ might not figure as prominent in the SPIDER-MAN initial reboot movie as producers rewind and start anew the telling of the popular comic book hero.

EMMA STONE [ZOMBIELAND] has been cast as the female lead in the upcoming Spider-Man film film from Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios, it was announced today by Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment and Matt Tolmach, president of Columbia Pictures.

Stone has been tapped for the role of GWEN STACY opposite ANDREW GARFIELD [THE SOCIAL NETWORK, THE IMAGINARIUM OF DOCTOR PARNASSUS] as Peter Parker.

The film, to be directed by Marc Webb [(500) DAYS OF SUMMER] from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt and produced by Avi Arad and Laura Ziskin, will begin production in December and will be released in theaters nationwide in 3D on July 3, 2012.

‘X-MEN: FIRST CLASS’ Update: JAMES MCAVOY Conformed For Young PROFESSOR X Role

James McAvoy (ATONEMENT, WANTED) has signed on to play a young Charles Xavier, aka Professor X, in “X-Men: First Class,” which Matthew Vaughn is directing for Fox.

Plot synopsis: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, following the classic Marvel mythology, charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga. Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.”

BRYAN SINGER Will Produce ‘X-MEN: FIRST CLASS’ Instead Of Direct – Here’s Why

March 29, 2010

BRYAN SINGER


Source: Deadline.com

Following up on a previous post that said BRIAN SINGER would direct the next X-MEN movie franchise; ‘X-MEN: FIRST CLASS’:

[Brian] Singer and 20th Century Fox have formalized his move from director to producer on X-Men: First Class. That is the bad news for X-Men die-hards who love the first two films Singer directed. Here’s the good part: he is leaving because Fox liked the script that Jamie Moss wrote from Singer’s treatment so much that the studio wants the film right away, envisioning it as the first leg of a trilogy. The hope is to have it ready for 2011 release.

Singer will join Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg as producers. He’s not available because Warner Bros and Legendary are locked into a summer production start on Jack the Giant Killer. They’ll begin casting shortly. It is a big CG project, and they are likely to either shoot 3D or convert it later.
