Logan Director Is Working On A Black-And-White Version
During the build-up to the release of Logan, director James Mangold tweeted a series of stylish black-and-white images from the movie, plus this mysterious teaser. Now Mangold has revealed that he is planning a black-and-white version of the film.
Mangold was asked on Twitter if a monochrome version of Logan was in the works. His response was very positive:
So...@mang0ld, by all that is good in the world, please let there be a release of Logan that is black and white. I need that in my life.— . (@AdamMcDee) March 1, 2017
@mang0ld Thank you, I can only say that. Blown away by Logan, amazing job.— Isma McLovin (@freakwithamouth) March 1, 2017
PD: I'd watch the shit out of a B&W Version.
If it happens, Logan won't be the first high-profile Hollywood action movie to get a black-and-white version. Last year, the 'chrome edition' of Mad Max: Fury Road was released.
Logan hits theaters this weekend. It is predicted to be a box office smash, and has received very strong reviews. GameSpot's Randolph Ramsay called it a must-see and the best X-Men movie to date.
Earlier this week, star Hugh Jackman revealed that it was comedian Jerry Seinfeld who convinced him to say goodbye to Wolverine. Appearing on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, Jackman said he approached Seinfeld two years ago to ask for his advice about potentially leaving the character behind.
Seinfeld shared his own philosophy with Jackman--and it resonated strongly, so much so that Jackman just hours later decided to say goodbye.
"He said, 'Look, when you creating something, it's very important not to run yourself dry. It's not about finishing on top necessarily, but making sure that you are creatively still have something left, which propels you into whatever is next,'" Jackman recalled.
"I went home and I said, 'This is it; this is the last one.' And then the next morning, I wake up at 4 in the morning, and I record into a voice memo because I had this really strong idea for what to do for the last one; and that's like two years ago."
