[[wysiwyg_imageupload: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.
