Hugh Jackman Talks "Wolverine" & "Fountain"

by | May 16, 2006 | Comments got Hugh Jackman to skip over the "X-Men: The Last Stand" chatter for just a few minutes, and the guy had a few fairly intriguing things to say about his upcoming "Wolverine" spin-off…

From "We have two drafts and David (Benioff) is going to do another draft, and then we’ll find our director," he said. "I’m not going to make a decision until I have the script right, but I’ll definitely look at Brett [Ratner]. I don’t want Wolverine to appear to be ‘X-Men 4’ in disguise; I don’t want to make it stylistically the same. I want to do something different. That’s my idea. Until we have the script, I don’t really know who’s right, but there’s been a lot of interest from a lot of really amazing directors, so I’m really excited."

And then over at Latino Review, Jackman gave up some info on the hotly-anticipated Darren Aronofsky film "The Fountain."

"Well it’s got to do with…Basically its like nothing you’ve ever seen before this movie is…I’m so proud to be in that movie that when I watched it I go ‘I’m so glad I’m in it’ because Aronofsky (Darren) I think is like a Kubrick (Stanley) but from a marketing point of view you’ve got to be very careful with how you position this. So they always had a plan, starting kind with film festivals the right film festival to build momentum before they release it. The movie has been ready for a few months I think, but they just had to wait for the right film festival, which I can’t announce. It is a special movie."
