The Wolverine (2013)
As it stands, the plot for John Wick: Chapter 3 is being kept under wraps and it's not difficult to imagine that the creative team will want to keep it that way for as long as possible.
Variety reports that the new movie will revolve around the two designers’ race to create the world’s fastest sportscar. They have more on the plot lines:
Based on a true story, the film follows an eccentric, determined team of American engineers and designers, led by automotive visionary Carroll Shelby and his British driver, Ken Miles, who are dispatched by Henry Ford II with the mission of building from scratch an entirely new automobile with the potential to finally defeat the perennially dominant Ferrari at the 1966 Le Mans World Championship.
The projects is as yet untitled, but it has a home over at 20th Century Fox where Mangold’s Logan and the previous X-Men spin-off The Wolverine were housed.

The project doesn’t have a formal title, but is known internally as the “Untitled Ford vs. Ferrari Project.”
Mangold had originally been slated to make a drama about kidnapped heiress Patty Hearst, but that project was canceled in the wake of complaints by the Hearst family. The Hearsts were concerned that the film would depict Patty Hearst as an enthusiastic member of the
While speaking at the 2018 Writers Guild Beyond Words Panel, James Mangold had a lot to say about the post-credit scene culture that we live in today and he did not hold back. Not only does the director find them "embarrassing," but thinks that movies that use them are bad as well.
“Tentpole movies in general…they are not movies, generally. They are bloated exercises in two-hour trailers for another movie they are going to sell you in two years. There are so many characters that each character gets an arc of about six-and-a-half minutes at best, and I’m not exaggerating.

This is the first time that a comic book film has been nominated in the adapted screenplay category, giving further credence to the notion that Logan is more than just your average superhero movie.
The gritty and dark take on Wolverine was Hugh Jackman’s final performance as the character and it went down tremendously with fans and critics alike – thanks in no small part to its distinct and grown up tone.
When asked by the La Times why he believes Logan was nominated, Mangold said: “On this film, we really focused on doing something different: a dramatic and character-driven film rather than trying to compete in the arms race of comic-book films… ‘I can spend more than you, I can blow up more than you.’ We wanted to
Fans of the movie – which many call one of the best superhero films ever – are obviously overjoyed, as are its cast and crew. Case in point: Logan himself, Hugh Jackman, took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the news, posting a glowing congratulations to writer/director James Mangold, who shares the nomination with co-writers Scott Frank and Michael Green.
The actor’s Tweet reads as follows:
“If Hollywood kept statistics for the most assists in nominations/awards … @mang0ld would be the league leader. Today,

“It looks to me that the Fox deal is certainly going to go ahead with Disney, and I’ve been with Fox for a number years now. I’m hoping I’ll still probably be there so whether or not they go ahead with such a dark subject, being Disney, as aliens remains to be seen. I think they should because I think, when people have a hard and fast franchise which has ongoing interest, it’s crazy not to do something with it.”

Niki Caro, best known for her work on the movie Whale Rider, has been tapped by Disney to direct the live-action Mulan. In a new report, it's revealed that Narcos' costume designer Bina Daigeler has been added to the crew. In addition, Sean Andrew Faden (Power Rangers) will serve as
It appears that Logan director James Mangold stepped in for friend Hugh Jackman to direct reshoots on The Greatest Showman.
The Greatest Showman is now playing in cinemas, and it's so far been on the receiving end of pretty mixed reviews.
A new story over at Variety, meanwhile, has suggested that 20th Century Fox reportedly hired Hugh Jackman's friend and frequent collaborator, James Mangold, to direct a week of reshoots, as well as oversee some of the editing and post-production process.
According to the report, Mangold was paid a seven-figure amount and brought in to direct reshoots because the studio felt that The Greatest Showman director Michael Gracey had become “overwhelmed with the scope of the picture.” This apparently extended to the post-production process, as the studio determined Gracey also needed “assistance” in the editing bay.
For the record, Gracey has a long history of shooting commercials
Gracey, who is making his feature film directorial debut with “The Greatest Showman,” had an extensive resume of commercials work, but struggled to adjust to the pressure of calling the shots on an $84 million film. It was also determined that he could use a veteran’s assistance with the post-production process.
To that end, Mangold helped edit the picture. He was given an executive producer credit for his work and was paid a seven-figure salary for his contributions.
A source close to the studio disputed any notion that Gracey had lost control of the

In keeping with superhero movies’ usually more realistic takes on comic book outfits, Jackman’s Wolverine is given a more armoured version of the traditional suit here, with black detailing instead of the typical blue or brown. However, it still looks awesome and is a damn sight more faithful than any of those boring black jumpsuits he wore in the role for nearly two decades.
Why did the actor never don the costume in the films, you ask?
This year Hugh Jackman finally said goodbye to the character Wolverine, giving his final performance as the mutant in the critically acclaimed Logan.
The actor had portrayed the fan favourite X-Man for 17 years so it was no easy thing to do. In an interview with Variety, Jackman touched on this, explaining how he felt and the regret he has.
“I wish I’d started playing him like that 17 years ago,” Jackman said. “So there’s some sense of missed opportunity, but when I saw Logan, I sat there and I did have tears in my eyes. The main feeling I had was: “There, that’s the character. I feel like I’ve done it now.” And I was calm and at peace, but I’m going to miss that guy.”

The director has come on board a still untitled adaptation of Jeffrey Toobin’s best-selling “American Heiress.” The film will not share the book’s title, but it will draw on Toobin’s reporting as it delves into Hearst’s kidnapping by the Symbionese Liberation Army and re-emergence as a member of the left-wing terrorist group. Elle Fanning is in talks to play Hearst, the Berkeley sophomore turned unlikely counter-culture revolutionary. Twentieth Century Fox is backing the project through its Fox 2000 label.
The screenplay was written by Larry Karaszewski & Scott Alexander and Mangold. Mangold will produce the film along with Nina Jacobsen and Brad Simpson of Colorforce.
Mangold has been attached to several other high profile projects, including an adaptation of Don Winslow’s popular novel “The Force,” as well as a big screen version of Katherine Applegate’s best-selling children’s book “Crenshaw
