Hugh Jackman’s The Wolverine To Film In Australia


1516 The Wolverine will be filmed in the hometown of Hugh Jackman, Sydney, Australia.

The Daily Telegraph reports The Wolverine will bring in an estimated $80 million to the region with 720 jobs consisting of the cast and crew.

2008's X-Men Origins: Wolverine filmed in Australia as well.

Things now seem to be running rather smoothly for The Wolverine as James Mangold is on as director, a release date has been announced with July 26th, 2013, and a few weeks ago in March the above [possible] movie poster was leaked. Previously, Darren Aronofsky was onboard to direct, but bailed citing travel reasons.

The Wolverine has a screenplay from Christopher McQuarrie and Mark Bomback on a script adapted from Frank Miller and Christopher Claremont's comic arc from 1982.
