Official Updates on the Future of ‘The Wolverine’

Today there was a “media day” for the release of X-Men: First Class, and Lauren Shuler Donner – producer of all five X-Men films – gave a little update on the future of The Wolverine. She spoke to Thomas Leupp of and had this to say about the project:

The state of The Wolverine, the sequel to 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, remains very much in flux, as Deadline previously reported, with neither an exact start date nor locations pinned down. “The date has been moved back and we’re figuring out where to shoot it,” [Lauren Shuler Donner] said. “There’s an issue with Japan and we’re juggling with Hugh [Jackman]’s schedule because Hugh’s gonna do Les Miserables. Now we’re figuring out where we’re gonna shoot it and when.”
