Wolverine movie gets green light

July 21, 2007

This is potentially going to be better than any of the X-Men movies because the focus will be primarily on this one popular character (and actor). Woot!

Director finally signed

After two years of discussion and rumor, Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine movie is finally a go.

Variety reports Gavin Hood will be directing from a David Benioff script. Hood is a director relatively unknown in the United States, although his work as an teevee actor (Stargate SG-1, King Solomon’s Mines, Rhodes) is somewhat better known. His movie Tsotsi won the Oscar last year as best foreign language movie.

Brian Cox (Deadwood, the Bourne movies) is expected to reprise his role as William Stryker from X2.
