Default Matt Reeves and Tony Scott on directors list

Quote:
Take it as a rumor for now, but this comes from some very reliable sources who have been good to us and very accurate in the past.

We're hearing that the search for the director for "Wolverine 2" has quietly been underway and a host of Hollywood players have been courted for the gig. Several directors including Kathryn Bigelow, Timur Bekmambetov (who seems to be approached for anything and everything) and Daniel Espinosa (who helmed the buzzed about Swedish flick "Snabba Cash" and was considered for "X-Men: First Class") have talked to the studio about the gig, but apparently Fox has narrowed it down to two choices: Matt Reeves and Tony Scott.

Those are two intriguing and quite different choices. From a budgetary perspective, Matt Reeves would probably be the less expensive choice. He's still a director on the rise, but has shown he can handle action and FX ("Cloverfield"), and given the early looks at "Let Me In" that have surprised even the staunchest of "Let The Right One In" defenders, it appears he knows his way around character and atmosphere too. He's polished and taking the gig would have him commanding his biggest film to date, and would be a big step up for the director.

As for Tony Scott, if the rumors are true, we're a bit surprised. While he's certainly commanded his share of big-budget action films, he's never been around a comic franchise, but hey, there's a first time for everything. While Scott would probably be a bit pricier to bring aboard, there is no doubt he would bring his energetic style (for better or worse) to the franchise, and most importantly, make **** blow up real good.

"Wolverine 2" was tentatively scheduled earlier this year for a January 2011 start, but rumors have been knocking around that the production start will be pushed back. And that would gel with these rumors as Scott is slated to start "Potsdamer Platz" in January, so presumably if he took the gig, "Wolverine 2" would shoot after. But again, things could theoretically come together quickly, and if Fox sticks with a January 2011 start, suddenly Reeves looks like a very strong frontrunner.

We'll close this out by saying that while our sources say it's down to those two directors, who knows how deep the discussions have gone and really, it could just mean that Fox is ready to get offers out to those two. And if they both pass, expect the other directors or new choices to come into play.

Put me down for Matt Reeves. Not because he's necessary proven himself as a great director (though I did love Cloverfield), but Tony Scott is the perfect example of one of the things that's wrong with Hollywood: style over substance. And he does that in a big way. His films are too profane and over edited to be watching without rolling your eyes. He think's he's in it with the crowd with the kinds of movies he's been aking lately, and I just can't get into all that. Reeves has potential, but I'd have to see more work from him before I can back him up 100%. Still, though, Reeves before Scott any day of the week.

Interesting.

Of course, since everyone wants Matt Reeves, they'll probably go with Tony Scott.

True Romance is the only Tony Scott film I like.
Didn't like Cloverfield and I doubt I would like Let Me In.

Interesting choices anyway.

I prefer Lethal Weapon, The Long Kiss Goodnight and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang over it. No Tony Scott ruining Shane Black.

^ I prefer them too, especially 'The Long Kiss Goodnight'. I do agree with you that 'True Romance' is his best movie. It's my favourite movie.

I wouldn't mind of these guys...especially after Hood.

I doubt Tony Scott would touch this, but Reeves might seem game for it. Scott hasn't made a sequel to a series he didn't start since Beverly Hills Cop II...

After seeing the first one I'll try not to have high expectations with this one, it will be great nonetheless if they manage to get a good director onboard but however is mostly the script and story I'm worrying about.

I would rather have Matt Reeves take on another character, or continue to do smaller films.

I prefer Scott, love his style and he has enough stature to not be pushed around by the studio, if they sign him they know he'll make his movie not theirs, Reeves did well with Cloverfield for what it was but I'd like a more proven director.
