A James Mangold le toca el gordo

Lobezno dibujado por Daniel AcuñaFox ha dado la respuesta a mi pregunta de hace un par de días: ¿Quién va a dirigir The Wolverine? El director será James Mangold. Su filmografía es completamente irregular, con algunas películas interesantes (como Cop Land) y muchos productos aburridos y mal documentados (como los Sanfermines en Sevilla de Noche y Día). Ninguna de sus películas está relacionada con cómics, así que espero que el guión, basado en la miniserie que escribió Frank Miller salve la peli, porque los fans de Marvel nos lo merecemos. Recordemos que la primera versión de Lobezno fue espantosa, así que Mangold tiene una gran responsabilidad, y todo el mundo sabe que “toda  gran responsabilidad conlleva un gran poder” (¿o era al revés?). 🙂


James Mangold hits the jackpot

Fox has given the answer to my precedent question: who is to direct The Wolverine.  The director is to be James Mangold. His filmography is astonishingly irregular, with some nice movies (as Cop Land) and many boring and awfully-documented products (such as Knight and Day), but none of them is related to comic books. I hope the script, based on Frank Miller‘s miniserie, will save the movie. Fans deserve it, because the first Wolverine movie was awful. So Mangold has a great responsibility, and everybody knows that “with great responsibility comes a great power” (or was it backwards?) 🙂

 


Is Bryan Singer to be the director of The Wolverine?

 Some weeks ago Darren Aronofsky decided not to be involved in the new version of Wolverine (that is supposed to be titled The Wolverine). Nobody knows who is to be the director of the movie, but Bryan Singer could be the choice. But why do I say that? I’m just guessing according to the name of the writer of the movie:  Christopher McQuarrie. Who is this guy? He has written other movies such as The tourist and The way of the gun. Those tittles are irrelevant to my supposition. The ones  really important, written by McQuarrie, are Jack the Giant Killer, Valkyrie, The usual suspects and Public access. The four movies were directed by… Bryan Singer! So, maybe MQuarrie may encourage his friend to return to direct a Marvel movie. We just have to wait and see.
