Hugh Jackman says “Wolverine” filming in October
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: According to Hugh Jackman, his anticipated Wolverine sequel has a start date. But does that mean it has a release date?
While speaking with radio station CHFI in Toronto, Jackman revealed that “The Wolverine” would begin shooting in October.
“We shoot in October, so it will probably come out a year after that,” the actor said. “That’s usually around the timeline.”
But is that possible? Would FOX work “The Wolverine” into its 2012 summer slate? The studio already has “Prometheus,” “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” and another “Ice Age” on the calendar. They don’t have a May 2012 release scheduled, but that doesn’t give director James Mangold (replacing the departed Darren Aronofsky) much time to turn around an acceptable blockbuster.
Then again, Matthew Vaughn was kept on a very tight schedule for “X-Men: First Class,” and look how that turned out.
