The Wolverine Filming Begins Next Spring

20th Century Fox looks to have pushed back production on “The Wolverine” by several months with filming now expected to begin in Spring 2012, not this Fall in Canada as previously reported (but never officially confirmed).

Deadline says that though the script and story are set in Japan, weather-related considerations has made shooting their a tricky proposition. The location might switch to Canada exclusively or involve a combination of the two countries.

James Mangold remains attached to direct the project which will begin shooting as soon as Hugh Jackman finishes the “Les Miserables” film adaptation.
