Two directors duel over Wolverine 2

When you think Wolverine, what first comes to mind? Twilight or The Time Traveler’s Wife?

According to Vulture, Fox have decided upon two directors to helm Wolverine 2, with star and producer Hugh Jackman to make the final call after meeting with each next week.

The two auteurs are David Slade (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Hard Candy) and Robert Schwentke (The Time Traveler’s Wife, Red). Vulture’s insider insists that Slade has the job.

Wolverine 2 is still set to begin production January 2011, with a script by Christopher McQuarrie. Vulture offer some more details on the plot:

“McQuarrie’s last draft from January has us rejoining Logan in Japan, where we left him at the end of the first Origins movie. There, he begins a forbidden romance with a Japanese woman whose hand in marriage is, unfortunately, promised to another man. This being Hugh Jackman, of course, he doesn’t take no for an answer. And, this being Japan, that doesn’t go over so well. Soon enough, Logan must do battle with her furious father and samurai-sword-wielding brothers.”

Discuss: Slade v. Schwentke. Who ya got?
