Wolverine Sequel Start Date Pushed Back?
Despite the star, Huge Jackman, suggesting last week that principal photography would begin mid-October, the infamous Deadline is reporting that the start date for Fox and James Mangold's Wolverine sequel may be pushed back to next year's Spring. The site explains:
Recent reports suggest that due to filming location problems, the start date for James Mangold's Wolverine sequel may have been pushed back as late as next year. Check it out!
The studio says it never officially [had a start date for] the sequel. But now that may push back to Spring 2012. The screenplay mostly takes place in Japan. But studio insiders tell us it’s hard finding just where to shoot in Japan these days because of weather-related considerations. Now the location might switch to Canada. But we’re also hearing that the start date will wait until after Jackman finishes making Les Miserables. There’s no question that 20th Century Fox wants the pic badly and has been trying to get its sequel to the X-Men spinoff rolling for quite awhile now.
The Wolverine, under James Mangold's direction, brings back Hugh Jackman as 'Logan/ Wolverine,' taking on the Silver Samurai. And with actress Naturi Naughton rumored for 'Cecilia Reyes,' as of now, the story follows Logan being lured to Japan to learn who he is and where he came from. And Fox has yet to announce a release date for the much-anticipated sequel.
