Russell Crowe got Hugh Jackman Wolverine part

Nov 23 2012, 10:01am CST | by

Russell Crowe has admitted he suggested Hugh Jackman would be the perfect fit for the part of Wolverine in 'X-Men'.

Russell Crowe got Hugh Jackman the role of Wolverine.
The 'Noah' star was initially targeted to portray the 'X-Men' character, but when he turned down the film, he suggested producer Bryan Singer spoke to the 'Real Steel' star instead.
He explained to the Grill Team on Australian radio station Triple M 104.9FM: ''Bryan Singer asked Rusty to do Wolverine, and he said, 'Nah mate I've just done 'Gladiator', it's not for me but you should look at this guy...' ''
Hugh is a big fan of Russell, both personally and professionally, and says he has learned a lot from his friend.
He said: ''He's a great guy in every way, I have so much time for him and to watch him work, everyone says he is a great actor, when you actually get to work with someone like that... He's that good when it matters, in that moment, in that close up tough moment, you just sit back and watch you know someone's got that confidence and is going to deliver. I learnt a lot from him.''
Hugh will next appear in James Mangold's sixth instalment of the 'X-Men' franchise, 'The Wolverine', in July 2013.

Shane Black to Direct THE DESTROYER Adaptation for Sony

It was pretty much a given that Kiss Kiss Bang Bang helmer Shane Black would have some heat coming off of directing the $1.5 billion-grossing Iron Man 3, but the guy is amassing a seriously stacked docket of upcoming projects.  The latest one to be added is an adaptation of the long-running Warren Murphy book series The Destroyer.  Sony Pictures announced today that Black will direct a feature film adaptation of the adventure se ...

Akiva Goldsman May Pen New Draft of THE RING 3D

Aug 21 2014 11:24am CDT | Source: Collider

Yes, Akiva Goldsman is an Academy Award-winning screenwriter, but have you seen Winter’s Tale?  That’s the kind of movie that is so bad, it could wind up becoming a warped classic for that very reason.  In fact, the group I saw it with still hasn’t stopped talking about it.  “I like pecans,” “I have a chicken,” Colin Farrell’s haircut, Russell Crowe’s finger-painting – the list of absurdities could go on and on. Even though A Beautiful Mind ...

Noah DVD Review: Russell Crowe's Biblical Storm Finds a Home

Jul 30 2014 4:08pm CDT | Source: movie fanatic

Darren Aronofsky may have seemed like an interesting director to bring the classic bible story of Noah to life. But when his effort landed on screens in the form of Noah, audiences responded in droves to the epic. Now Noah has arrived on DVD, Blu-Ray and digital download and what is so fascinating is that even though it is an epic that should be seen on the biggest screens on the planet, due to Aronofsky’s storytelling style and character build ...

NOAH Blu-ray Review

Jul 30 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Collider

The sign of a good religious picture is the controversy surrounding it.  Whenever a movie asks you to seriously grapple with theological issues, it’s bound to rile those who like their religion safe and comforting.  Noah certainly prompted its share of screeching op-ed pieces, along with the smug indifference of the secular crowd.  In truth, director Darren Aronofsky has punk’d them all: creating a ...

New on DVD/Blu-ray: The Spectacular 'Noah,' the Surprisingly Sweet 'The Other Woman' and More

Jul 29 2014 6:01pm CDT | Source: movies.com

Noah - Paramount Pictures - Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD Director: Darren Aronofsky Cast: Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone,Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson. Full cast + crew Noah is a stunning piece of filmmaking. Of course, that's to be expected when it comes to a movie about the construction of a giant ark intended to survive an apocalyptic flood, but Darren Aronofsky pushes his movie far beyond your standard biblical epic and turns it into a transcendent, e ...

Writer Ari Handel Tells Us What Movie Was Harder to Get Made, 'Noah' or 'The Fountain'

Jul 28 2014 6:03pm CDT | Source: movies.com

Ari Handel was studying to become a neuroscientist when he met a young man named Darren Aronofsky at college. Fast-forward a decade or so, and now Handel is Aronofsky's most frequent collaborator, having coproduced The Wrestler and Black Swan, as well as having cowritten The Fountain. Their latest film together is Noah, starring Russell Crowe as a man tasked by visions from his God to build an ark before mankind is swept off the planet by an unrelenting flood. The visio ...

THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN LIVES; WHAT HAPPENED? Trailer Offers Amazing Glimpse Into What Could Have Been

Jul 25 2014 1:46pm CDT | Source: Collider

Superman Lives is one of the great (or not-so-great) lost movies of Hollywood.  Back in the mid-90’s Tim Burton came onboard the project alongside star Nicolas Cage and screenwriter Kevin Smith.  They actually got pretty far along in development (you’ve no doubt seen Cage’s infamous photo in the costume) before the whole thing fell apart.  Now, filmmaker Jon Schnepp is attempting to brave the waters and figure out what happened with his upcoming doc ...

Hellboy 3: Epic Movie Sequels That Never Happened

Jul 21 2014 9:51am CDT | Source: movie pilot

Hellboy 3 isn't happening. It's sad, I know, but both actors and the director have confirmed that we won't get to see Big Red in action again. Hopefully a publicity stunt like the Aquaman deal but right now, it seems very, very unlikely. Anyway, we might as well get on with the post-mortem. What follows is Guillermo del Toro's idea for the movie. Hellboy was to finally come to terms with the fact that his destiny, his ...

L.A.CONFIDENTIAL: The best neo-noir crime drama ever.

Jul 21 2014 9:08am CDT | Source: movie pilot

I had the good fortune of seeing L.A.Confidential for the fourth time last night, and I remain with my opinion that this is one of the finest American movies of the last fifty years. If nothing else, director and co-writer Curtis Hanson has turned an dense James Ellroy novel (who's enjambing attempts to make his fiction seem to the reader that they're actually in the mind of problematic crime fighters makes him unreadable)l into a riveting ...
