Bad News For Fans Of Movies Featuring Humans With Big Metal Claws
The same people that are stoked about the good “Watchmen” news may be bummed by this bit of info. The funny thing is that the same studio that tried to put the kibosh on “Watchmen”, Fox, may be ruining an even more beloved comic book character film adaptation.
Collider is reporting that there is some filming going on for “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” in Vancouver. Fox says that these are shoots that were schedule long ago in order to film in specific weather…that’s b.s. folks. If you are an online movie geek like me, you know that this movie has been plagued with problems from day one. Director Gavin Hood wanted to make a dark, tough Wolverine movie and Fox pushed for the PG-13 rating. Fox also made numerous changes against Hood’s will and then brought in veteran director Richard Donner to “oversee” the production.
Cinematically Correct note: Richard Donner got s***canned from the original “Superman” movie because Warner Brothers didn’t like what he was doing. Isn’t it ironic…don’t you think?
