The Vancouver Sun is reporting that 20th Century Fox will begin shooting “The Wolverine” in Vancouver this November. Here’s what they had to say:
Hugh Jackman and the cast of Wolverine 2 will be heading to Vancouver in November to round up a star-studded year of Hollywood blockbusters filmed here in B.C.
Filming of the action flick is set to take place Nov. 11 to March 1, 2012 at Canadian Motion Picture Park in Burnaby, where scenes from Twilight, Supernatural and Fantastic Four were filmed.
James Mangold (Girl Interrupted, Walk the Line, 3:10 to Yuma) will be the new director replacing Darren Aronofsky who dropped out. While he’s no Aronofsky, I have confidence that he’ll do the picture justice and “The Wolverine” will still be as good as it was originally touted to be.
For now, “The Wolverine” still does not have a release date.
