http://movieweb.com/hugh-jackman-and-director-james-mangold-reteam-for-third-wolverine-movie/Last month, we reported that Hugh Jackman is developing a follow-up to The Wolverine with director James Mangold. While development is still ongoing, the actor revealed he isn't quite sure he wants to return as Logan.
"I don't know whether or not I will do this next movie. I am really proud of this movie and I am excited to develop something with Jim Mangold from the beginning because that is a great ride. That's exciting, to see what we come up with but I have a very high expectation of what it would need to be [for me to star in it] and if it doesn't reach those, I won't be doing it."
When asked if there was a screenplay in place, the actor said there is no writer attached.
"No there is not but Jim Mangold and I were literally on the phone last night talking about ideas but there is no script and no writer yet so it's a way off."
The actor revealed in September that this summer's X-Men: Days of Future Past might be his last time playing Logan. We'll have to wait for The Wolverine sequel script to see what the future holds for Hugh Jackman and his iconic character. If he does not appear in this follow-up, will there be a 'new' Wolverine? And what does his departure mean for the recently announced X-Men: Days of Future Past sequel X-Men: Apocalypse?
In related news, Simon Kinberg, who wrote the script for X-Men: Days of Future Past, has signed a new three-year first-look deal at 20th Century Fox to develop a Marvel-style universe of interconnected superhero movies.
"I have a lot of ideas on how to built those brands and do what everybody is thinking of these days: Be like Marvel. I want to be able to build stories over multiple movies."
Back in September 2012, Mark Millar signed on with 20th Century Fox to consult on the studio's Marvel properties. With Simon Kinberg's new deal in place, some questioned whether or not Mark Millar is still on board as a creative consultant. However, he clarified his involvement with the studio earlier today.
