Director James Mangold has become the latest filmmaker to join Twitter. He is currently in production on The Wolverine, and a few hours ago (7 A.M. Australia time), the he shared some insight into the production, confirming that this superhero follow-up will feature both English and Japanese portions of dialogue.
Just finished pages. Made some tweaks. Scribbled out fresh shot list. About to head to set for day 14 of THE WOLVERINE.— James Mangold (@mang0ld) August 15, 2012
Amazing images being made. Great actors in this show. Exhilarating to direct a in multiple languages. Real emotion transcends language.— James Mangold (@mang0ld) August 15, 2012
Today I am starting an intense set piece of action and drama at the Yashida Compound set. Logan, Yukio and Shingen.— James Mangold (@mang0ld) August 15, 2012
This confirms a report from last August, when the filmmaker said this will be a "foreign language superhero drama," since it will be shot in both Japan and Australia. We'll be keeping an eye on the filmmaker's Twitter account from now on, to see if any more intriguing tidbits are revealed while production continues.
