Hugh Jackman Talks “Wolverine 3” Script

At the Sundance Film Festival this week to promote the “Eddie the Eagle” biopic alongside Taron Egerton, actor Hugh Jackman has spoken with Collider about the upcoming third standalone “Wolverine” movie and the last time the actor will take on the role of the triple-clawed mutant.

The film is currently set for a March 3rd 2017 release under the helm of James Mangold, but beyond that there’s nothing really set in the way of dates or details. Asked where things stand now, Jackman says:

“We have a script. A full script. Actually, two days ago, I got the full, full, full finished–I mean it’s not finished–but we’re getting super close, as you can see by the rate of my facial hair. that might give you a clue that perhaps it’s sooner rather than later.

I don’t have a firm date yet. My thing is, I’ve told you, and I’ve told everyone…it’s my last one. For me I want it to be perfect. So the moment I know it’s perfect, bang, we’ll go.”
