We know that the next Wolverine movie takes place in Japan, and has the potential to feature the Silver Samuarai, but what fans don’t know is when the movie begins production. Hugh Jackman took to Twitter this weekend and let everyone in on the production.
starts shooting in August!!! “@MarkGreen74: @RealHughJackman Hi Hugh, any updates on the next Wolverine film for all us geeky fans?
The exterior scenes will be shot in Japan, while the stage bits will be shot in Australia. This makes sense as Australia is giving $12 million to the studio to shoot there.
Fox CEO Tom Rothman said previously. “A great number of Japanese actors will be in it and it’s based on the very famous run of the comics… I can just tell you on behalf of [Jackman], his goal is to make the ultimate, bad ass, berserker rage Wolverine.”
The Wolverine is scheduled to hit theaters on July 26, 2013.
