Hugh Jackman Has Read the Wolverine 2 Script
We reported last week that Christopher McQuarrie had completed the script for X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2 and now it seems the star has read it. io9 reported from a Repo Men press conference where actor Liev Schrieber, who played Victor Creed/Sabertooth in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, revealed he recently met with Hugh Jackman, who said he had read the script for the sequel.
I just had dinner with [Hugh Jackman] last night and Hugh read the first draft of the script and I was really excited about it. It's still not clear whether or not Victor will be present in the Japan storyline. In the Japan storyline as I remember it from the Wolverine comics, Victor wasn't there. So I don't know, of course I've got my fingers crossed because I love the character so much, to have the chance to do it again would be a lot of fun, but I'm not sure.
Our previous report revealed that production on X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2 would start in January 2011. We'll be sure to keep you posted on any new developments surrounding this upcoming sequel as soon as we have more information.
