"The King's Speech" Director Was Offered "Iron Man 3"

Posted: February 24th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"The KingSubmit Comment
"The King's Speech" is the favorite to win the Best Picture Oscar, which is why director Tom Hooper has been getting plenty of offers to direct all sorts of movies.

LA Times has learned that Marvel recently approached Hooper with the chance to direct "Iron Man 3." The helmer turned it down and the studio ended up giving the job to Shane Black.

Instead, Hooper has been considering directing "Les Miserables," a new, big-budget version of the classic novel and Broadway musical. If Hooper accepts the offer, it will be his first helming gig since he wrapped "The King's Speech" about a year ago.

@darkraven28
not as weird as finding out the room used in the King's Speech, where Rush helps Firth in his "office" was used before in a gay porno.

Bravo, Marvel. Trying to put in another director who knows nothing about the comic they're adapting into a film. Let's see how Captain America first before you start hiring directors who could give two sh*ts about the comics into movies thing.

Marvel is turning into a real movie studio, selling out everything and bringing in talent that will ruin their products, just so they can make a quick buck and cash in on popularity.

Soon enough I predict they will also suck balls like everyone else.

CONGRATULATIONS MARVEL

God this director and film are overrated... do not get me wrong the film was good, and so was the direction. But nothing too special at all, I hate that history piece movies just seem to be overrated all the time now

Is there a person in Hwood who wasn't offered Iron Man 3?

From the news it looks like they were handing out leaflets advertising the job.

"Here! Here! Only today and only right now who wants to direct Iron Man 3?"

You know even though I don't think he would have been able to handle the action element of the story I like that they considered a guy who has directed a good movie with some character and story elements in it. I've noticed that that movies that have actually been getting awards and making money lately are well-done character films. Inception is a rare one among them of course being special effects based but still I think people have finally gotten sick of big budget crap fests and have started to embrace smaller, more delicately handled films. Perhaps Hollywood will learn. It's a long shot, but why not hope right?
