Like the character himself, the production is quickly healing from the loss of Oscar-nominated director Darren Aronofsky and is now moving forward at a decent pace. It may happen a little later than sooner, but only because Hugh Jackman won't settle for someone with less talent than Darren Aronofsky behind the lens.
"Now, we're out looking for a director. We were pretty much ready to go. The script is fantastic - the best we've ever had, which is why it attracted Darren in the first place. His personal situation precludes him from doing it now, and I feel for him. But now we need to find a director. We're not going to settle. We're going to find a director as good as Darren, if not better. Well, as good. Everyone is still pushing forward to getting it done. I can't be eating too many more chicken breasts."
