Michael Green (“Green Lantern,” “Heroes”), who recently penned the script for the upcoming “Prometheus” and “Blade Runner” sequels, has been hired to pen the script for the upcoming third Wolverine movie at 20th Century Fox.
James Mangold will direct the project which is currently going by the title “Wolverine” and is expected to be Hugh Jackman’s final outing as the character. Green is currently working on the script with Mangold’s input.
The project was on Mangold’s back burner, but with news today of Christian Bale tearing his ACL and delaying Mangold’s immediate next project, “The Deep Blue Goodbye,” Mangold is now focusing on “Wolverine” which will hit cinemas March 3rd 2017.
