D.J. Caruso and Len Wiseman were claimed by IESB.net to be the next contenders for the director's chair in "Wolverine."
Whether Brett Ratner's name is still being considered for the director of X-Men spin-off "Wolverine" is unclear, but buzz is now circling on two other directing figures for the part.
IESB.net has brought in surprising tidbit stating that D.J. Caruso and Len Wiseman are both on the line to assume the coveted position in the 20th Fox Century's highly anticipated project with the former even being claimed to be in talks with the studio.
Caruso, who recently scored success through teen thriller "Disturbia", turns out to be no stranger to superhero feature as he once directed an episode of hit TV series "Smallville." Other film directing credits of his include "Two for the Money", "Taking Lives", and "The Salton Sea."
As for Wiseman, the site reported that the Fremont-born filmmaker is prepared to be the replacement for Caruso should the guy drops the negotiations as he has also been said to get offered the helmer's chair in an unspecified project for DreamWorks. Wiseman, known for his works in the "Underworld" films, has long been rumored for the task, first being speculated so in 2004.
