Not only do actors make or break a film, but directors have the same, if not more impact of the success or failure of the film. Hollywood is a competitive place and directors need to be picky about which films they choose to direct. Here are 6 directors who decided to turn down big budget blockbuster films which could have turned out so differently.
Darren Aronofsky is known for directing The Wrestler and Black Swan which are both Fox films. They were so impressed with Aronofsky that they offered him a directing role for their latest X-Men film, The Wolverine. Aronofsky in the end turned down the offer as he was going through many personal issues such as recently breaking up with his partner, Rachel Weisz. He also was turned off by the fact that most of the film was to be shot in Japan and he didn't’ want to spend that much time away from home. In the end Aronofsky worked on Noah and James Mangold ended up directing Wolverine.
