Hugh Jackman is excited about the upcoming Wolverine solo movie –which is ironic, because we’re excited about Hugh Jackman!
But thanks to a new script that recently arrived on the doorstep of Hugh Jackman, the saga of Wolverine is only just beginning.
“We have our final script,” Jackman grinned like a proud papa this week, announcing his satisfaction with the untitled Wolverine prequel that he’ll begin filming in late 2007.
Little is known about the Wolverine spinoff flick, which — like a similarly conceived Magneto prequel in development — will tell the early story of an X-Men character while continuing to employ the fan-favorite star who brought him to life. Jackman’s comments, however, would seem to suggest that controversial “Last Stand” director Brett Ratner will not be returning.
