Mark Romanek has officially taken himself out of the running to replace Darren Aronofsky on Fox’s upcoming sequel The Wolverine. Speaking to Digital Spy, Romanek confirmed he was under consideration, but opted not to pursue it. “That script was a terrific version of that kind of thing, but not something I felt really passionate about.”
Romanek directed Never Let Me Go, the absolute best film of 2010, and seemed like the only available option for making an even better film than Aronofsky might have…barring David Lynch or Wes Anderson somehow miraculously expressing interest in the gig. FFFFFfffffffffF.
Speaking of best of the year, The Tree of Life is expanding again this weekend, adding another 27 theaters. If it’s in your area, it really is an experience worth having.
