Here's a hairy situation. What do you do after your hot, A-list director drops out of your hot, A-list film? Well, if you're 20th Century Fox -- and the film is the high profile 'The Wolverine' (starring Hugh Jackman) -- you put together a wish list of directors and hope that one of them will bite.

It's been two months since Darren Aronofsky declined to work on the film and, according to Variety, Fox is considering eight candidates for the job: Doug Liman ('The Bourne Identity'), Mark Romanek ('Never Let Me Go'), Jose Padilha ('Elite Squad'), Antoine Fuqua ('Training Day'), Justin Lin ('Fast Five'), James Mangold ('Walk the Line'), Gavin O'Connor ('Pride and Glory') and Gary Shore (a commercials director).
