Hugh Jackman Says The Wolverine Begins Shooting In October

Over the last year, The Wolverine has had some bumps in its road to production, like the departure of director Darren Aronofsky and concerns about filming in Japan after the tragic earthquake. But it looks as if things might be smoothing out for the next solo film featuring the Marvel hero.

Indie Wire reported on a CHFI radio interview Hugh Jackman conducted in Toronto. Instead of describing any further problems for production, Jackman had some good news for everyone looking forward to the film.

“We shoot [‘The Wolverine’] in October, so it will probably come out a year after that,” he said. “That’s usually around the timeline.”

While plans initially said that the movie would be out in 2012, the delays had caused some to wonder if the movie would actually come out in 2013.

It also makes one wonder if the issue of finding a new director is over. Earlier this month, word was circulating that “3:10 to Yuma” director James Mangold would most likely take the helm and replace Aronofsky.

Based on a story by Frank Miller and Chris Claremont, this movie will take Logan to Japan where he has to deal with the Japanese mafia and the problems that arise due to his own bestial nature.
