Aronofsky To Direct Machine Man, Not Marvel's

His deal to direct Fox's Wolverine 2 may not be official, but Darren Aronofsky isn't sitting around waiting for papers to be signed; he's just signed on to direct a movie version of Machine Man... but it's not Marvel's robot superhero.

This particular Man will be an adaptation of Max Berry's novel about an engineer who upgrades himself through cyborg enhancement, currently being serialized online one page at a time, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Aronofsky will reunite with his Black Swan collaborator Mark Heyman to write the script, with Crash and The Illusionist's Cathy Schulman acting as producer. It's unknown at this time whether this news will push Wolverine 2 back or whether the Hugh Jackman sequel will be shot first.
