Jackman On The Fate Of “The Wolverine”

With Darren Aronofsky’s departure and the Japan disaster, many have been left wondering if “The Wolverine” film will ever get off the ground.

Now, Hugh Jackman spoke with Coming Soon yesterday at CinemaCon and said the film is still going ahead, but no dates are yet locked.

“We need to find another director and once we’ve found that, we’ll be able to know. it’s too early to call on Japan, I’m not sure where they’re at, so now we’re finding another director, but Fox is very anxious to make the movie and we’re moving ahead full steam to find another director” says Jackman.

Producer Lauren Shuler Donner said a similar sentiment the other day, though with Jackman’s schedule it does seem likely a shoot will not take place until the end of the year at the earliest.
