Hugh Jackman is set to reprise his role as the fearsome mutant in a script written by David Benioff. The story, a spin-off from the X-Men films, will mix and match classic Wolverine folklore to give a fresh, original take on Logan's origin story. We'll finally get to see how he became endowed with those sharp adamantium claws.
Jackman stated, "I have long been a fan of Gavin's work and know he will make a masterful film with the character intensity and action beats the fans expect." The project will begin shooting in November for a 2008 release date.
