Hugh Jackson talks ‘The Wolverine’, says script is similar to Aronofsky’s version

Fox and Hugh Jackman finally settled on James Mangold to take the reins of the superhero flick after director Darren Aronofsky dropped out. Production is now set to begin next spring, straight after Jackman wraps Les Miserables.

While promoting “Real Steel” Jackman addresses Mark Bomback’s rewrite of Christopher McQuarrie’s initial script, saying that he thinks it’s as strong if not stronger than the Aronofsky/McQuarrie version.

“We had a script that was under Darren Aronofsky’s directorial—it’s 85 percent the same.  Darren took it in a Darren Aronofsky way and it’s a version I know fans would have liked to have seen – I would have loved to have seen it.  James Mangold’s version of the script brought Mark Bomback on. We always had a strong base there.  This is the best script we have had, which is precisely why Darren signed on.  I tried to get Darren to do X3 and Wolverine and he was always like, ‘It’s not really for me.’ I knew he was looking for a comic book movie and he read this one and he goes, ‘Hey, this is the best one I’ve ever read.’  So there is a lot of meat on the bone there.  Now, Mark and Jim have taken it and I think that it as strong, if not stronger, than what we would have had with Darren.”
