Wolverine movie gets filming date

May 22nd, 2012 by Marc Comments

Hugh Jackman has confirmed via his Twitter (seriously, how was there any announcements in the past without Twitter and Facebook?) that The Wolverine has now got a shooting schedule beginning in August. Filming will begin in Sydney before heading to Japan.

The movie will be based on Chris Claremont and Frank Miller’s excellent The Wolverine comic and will be written by Christopher McQuarrie who wrote the brilliant The Usual Supects. We have high hopes for a return to the Wolverine we loved in X-Men and X-Men 2.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
