Darren Aronofsky’s Wolverine Film Will Just Be Called The Wolverine

Darren Aronofsky's X-Men movie will be titled The Wolverine, the director announced yesterday. The film will be a "one-off" stand-alone project, written by Christopher McQuarrie, and not a sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The plot's promising: It'll reportedly feature Logan, played by Hugh Jackman, beginning a forbidden romance with a Japanese woman whose hand in marriage is already promised to another man. Naturally, he then battles her father and samurai-sword-wielding brothers in order to be with her. Sounds kind of awesome. [Coming Soon via Movieline]
