HOLLYWOOD – The Wolverine will return with Hugh Jackman taking up the adamantine claws once more in Young Logan.
Following Logan word had it that Hugh Jackman was done with the famous X-Man. But apparently not. Speaking EXCLUSIVELY with the Studio Exec, Jackman revealed that the new film would take a completely different direction:
Yes. When we were doing a lot of press I admit I was tired. Wolverine took up a significant part of my acting life and though I’m grateful, I felt that I could escape now. However, when James Foley told me the idea of doing a Young Logan movie, I just had to read the script. What I found was a story we hadn’t done before. This is about James Howlett growing up in Canada. His family background and his tragic first love. It’s actually very moving.
But surely you’re too old to play the role?
Digital de-aging my friend. Ridley Scott put me on to it.
