Arthouse director Darren Aronofsky (who directed The Wrestler and the adaptation Requiem for a Dream) has joined the director of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse on the shortlist to direct the film. What do you think? Could a director like Aronofsky handle a comic book franchise?
Deadline Hollywood has the scoop: “20th Century Fox is between David Slade and Darren Aronofsky, I’m told. Slade, who just directed the summer hit The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, met over the weekend with Hugh Jackman on location where he is shooting Real Steel for DreamWorks. Aronofsky has also been talking with Jackman, and they have a good relationship that dates back to The Fountain, when Jackman stepped in after Brad Pitt dropped out.” (Via io9)
