Tom Rothman Offers THE WOLVERINE Production Update; Says It Will Be A "True Wolverine Movie"

The 20th Century Fox CEO updates on Hugh Jackman's next outing as The Wolverine, saying that preparation is now underway and that the character will be "berserker and badass" in the film.



After a series of delays, it appears that The Wolverine - said to be a stand alone film starring Hugh Jackman yet again as the famous Marvel Comics character - is finally beginning production this summer. Recently, it was confirmed that the film, directed by Knight And Day's James Mangold, will film in both Australia and Japan. Now, in an interview with Collider, Fox CEO Tom Rothman updates on the flick, revealing when casting begins and their current preparation. “Hugh Jackman is finishing Les Miserables in London, we’re gearing up and prepping now. We’ll shoot the stage work in Australia and the location work in Japan, and we’ll start casting in the next month or so. There’ll be a lot of local Japanese talent in it.”

Additionally, Rothman discussed the story and how it's a "true Wolverine" film. “This is […] a pretty original take. It’s based on a very successful run in the comics, but it’s a true Wolverine movie, I mean this is the true berserker, bad ass Wolverine.” The film is based on Frank Miller's successful Japanese storyline. It's additionally been confirmed that the Silver Samurai will be the villain in the movie.

The Wolverine is set to hit theaters July 26th, 2013.
