Directors notes: Aronofsky for Wolverine 2? Jonathan Liebesman for Clash of the Titans 2?

Deadline has some rather interesting director notes on a few movies: CLASH OF THE TITANS 2, WOLVERINE 2, and DEADPOOL. I'll just cut to the chase and get right into it.

CLASH OF THE TITANS 2: I'm not sure how many of you were fans of Louis Leterrier's CLASH OF THE TITANS. The 3D from what I hear was a bit of a mess (2D for me). Then there was the anti-climatic ending. It was a major build up that ultimately gave the audience a wicked case of blue balls. Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures are apparently vying for BATTLE: LOS ANGELES director Jonathan Liebesman to helm a sequel. The studio has been working around the clock to get a sequel going ever since the movie grossed $500 million worldwide. Leterrier made it clear since last April that he would not return for a sequel. UPDATE - It was announced this morning that Liebesman has officially signed on to direct CLASH OF THE TITANS 2.

WOLVERINE 2: Here's where it gets rather interesting. The story of Logan going off to Japan has collected some interest from directors. A lot of this has to do with the fact that Hugh Jackman has been courting some directors for the project. They say that ultimately the decision of the helmer comes down to Jackman. Last we heard, David Slade was the forerunner for the film. But in a rather cool twist, Jackman has also been in discussion with his former director on THE FOUNTAIN, Darren Aronofsky. Will it be Slade or Aronofsky? Only time can tell. Robert Schwentke (RED) was at one time circling the film, but decided against it.

DEADPOOL: Ryan Reynolds is still wanting to do a solo DEADPOOL film-- however he just signed on to do SAFE HOUSE with Denzel Washington which will start early next year. He's a busy guy and so is DEADPOOL directing hopeful Robert Rodriguez. The director says that he really likes the script, but there's just so much going on for him right now. Between promoting MACHETE and directing SPY KIDS 4 there's not a lot of breathing room, "We haven't really gotten into the discussion, but they are trying to make a certain small window that's going to be tough because of Spy Kids. If they push it back, it would be a lot better for me."

Extra Tidbit: Should DEADPOOL be pushed back for Rodriguez? And even bigger news, Aronofsky as a possible WOLVERINE 2 director? Imagine that crazy brilliant shit.
