Wasting absolutely no time, Fox announced yesterday that it’s keeping Hugh Jackman busy in the wake of X3: The Last Stand:
“20th Century Fox announced at Cinema Expo International that a Wolverine movie spinned off the ‘X-Men’ film franchise will be ready for release sometime in 2007, according to The Hollywood Reporter… The movie plans to delve into Wolverine’s quest to discover more about his past, which he cannot fully remember. David Benioff (‘Troy’) is working on the script. A director has not been chosen yet, but Jackman and veteran ‘X-Men’ movie exec Lauren Shuler-Donner are producing.”
Ready for release sometime next year? Meeting demand or hoping to cash in before the bubble bursts – You be the judge.
