Stop Saying Darren Aronofsky is Going to Direct (Insert Name of Comic Book To Movie Adaptation Here)
Darren Aronofsky, the famed director of Requiem for a Dream, The Wrestler and the Black Swan, has had his name in the ring as the possible director for a number of comic book movie adaptations. First, there was Superman, which was squashed when Zach Snyder was named director of the rebooted series.
That was all fine and dandy, especially since that could have opened up the door for Aronofsky to do the other films he was said to be up for: Wolverine 2 and Preacher. Before you start debating whether or not his talents are fit to adapt these classic stories, sources say he’s not even considering either project.
“I can tell you there is no truth to this rumor,” one person close to Aronofsky said about the Preacher rumors, adding that the Wolverine 2 chatter was false as well.
So who exactly was the director that John August was referring to when he said he was talking to somebody to helm the film?
