Brief Details Of Alaskan Scenes For Hugh Jackman's THE WOLVERINE
James Mangold's The Wolverine will be filming scenes depicting a snow covered Alaska in Picton, south-west of Sydney. Click the jump for exclusive information about these scenes.
Earlier today the Illawarra Mercury had spoken with with a member of the Wollondilly Shire Council that confirmed The Wolverine would be filming at an old hardware shop and Wollondilly Shire Hall. Streets will be shutdown beginning at noon on Thursday til 6am Saturday. The spokeswoman did not provide any details.
Southern Highland News is relaying news from Wollondilly Advertiser's reporter Michael Cox who has learned that snow is being trucked in to the town and will be scattered upon rooftops and roads. The set will be made to resemble snow covered Alaska.
I've been told by my source that Hugh Jackman will be filming scenes in which his character, Logan, heads into a small Alaskan town and purchases goods from a store that sells camping gear. Logan will also have scenes that take place in the front and back of a local bar.
I also did some digging and came across this message on the Wollondilly Library's facebook page.
Finally! A literary character is coming to Picton, Wolverine no less…Oh who am I kidding, Hugh Jackman is coming to Picton!!! Scenes from ‘The Wolverine’ film are being shot right here in front of the Library building from the 2nd to 4th August. We are expecting that the urge to visit the library will be HUGH.

The cast includes: Hugh Jackamn (Logan/Wolverine), Svetlana Khodchenkova (Viper), Hiroyuki Sanada (Shingen), Hal Yamanouchi (Yashida), Tao Okamoto (Mariko), Rila Fukushima (Yukio), Brian Tee (Norubo Mori), and Will Yun Lee (Kenuichio Harada/Silver Samurai).
