List of Directors up for the Wolverine Origins 2 Job

20h Century Fox and Hugh Jackman are moving forward with the sequel to “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” after Director Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan) dropped out. Today a list of eight directors who the studio is considering to replace Aronofsky has surfaced.

List of potential directors:

* Jose Padilha(“Robocop” reboot, Elite Squad)

* Doug Liman(Mr. and Mrs. Smith, The Bourne Identity)

* Antoine Fuqua(Training Day)

* Mark Romanek(Never Let Me Go, One Hour Photo)

* Justin Lin(Terminator 5, Fast Five)

* Gavin O’Connor(Pride and Glory, Miracle)

* James Mangold(3:10 to Yuma, Walk the Line)

* Gary Shore(Commercialsdirector)

Ok there all pretty well known. Except for Gary Shore. He ended up on this list after he created a short called “Wolverine vs the Hand”. This is his way of saying to Fox “You don’t need any of those big directors! i know exactly what the people want to see!”…… Check it out below.

Well, it works for me! Hire this guy and get him to work ASAP!

    Please GOD not Antoine Fuqua! Would opt for Doug Liman out of those eight.
