THE WOLVERINE: New Set Photos With Hugh Jackman; Plus A Scene Description
Hugh Jackman was spotted filming scenes for James Mangold's The Wolverine at The Chinese Garden of Friendship, near Darling Harbour. Also, spoilers included in a description of an upcoming scene. Hit the jump to check it out.
The Wolverine is back in Australia after spending several weeks filming in Japan. Since September 26 they've been prepping and filming scenes at The Chinese Garden of Friendship, which is located in the heart of Sydney. At that location photographers were able to snap some images of Hugh Jackman (Logan) and his co-star Rila Fu-kushima, who is playing Yukio. They will continue to film at that location for another three days.
While I don't have details about those scenes, I do have details about an upcoming scene that will be filmed this Saturday in Parramatta, between Smith and George Street.
Shot Sequence Description - A couple being pursued on foot as they dodge through traffic in a Japanese city street. They are nearly hit by passing vehicles but manage to keep going.
