Which will be directed by the man behind The Wrestler…

Hugh Jackman has spoken about the next Wolverine film saying it will be “very different” to the first film dedicated to the X Men character.
This month director Darren Aronofsky has been confirmed for the project, which will start shooting next year.
He’s famed for dark movies like Requiem For A Dream and The Wrestler, so seems an unusual choice for a comic-book adaptation. But Hugh said he’s expecting great things.
“This is, hopefully for me, going to be out of the box. It’s going to be the best one, I hope," the Aussie star told NY Mag. “I feel this is going to be very different."
He continued: "This is Wolverine. This is not Popeye. He’s kind of dark, But, you know, this is a change of pace. Chris McQuarrie, who wrote The Usual Suspects, has written the script, so that’ll give you a good clue. [Aronofsky’s] going to make it fantastic.
“There’s going to be some meat on the bones. There will be something to think about as you leave the theater, for sure.”
X Men Origins: Wolverine 2 is currently scheduled for release in late 2011. Aronofsky’s next film is ballet drama Black Swan- which stars Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis.
