'Wolverine 3' Hugh Jackman Gives An Update On The Film

By Matt O'Bryant

Hugh Jackman's final appearance as Wolverine is on on the horizon, which sucks to think about, but hopefully he will go out like the true badass that he is. While no story details or casting has been announced, we do know that director James Mangold will return to direct and if rumors hold up, the film will be influenced heavily by the cult classic "Old Man Logan" story-line from the comics. In a recent interview promoting his new film Eddie the Eagle at Sundance, Jackman gave an update on the film which is set to hit theaters next year.

We have a script. A full script. To tell you, two days ago I got that the full finished—well, it’s not finished, but we’re getting super close—as you can see by the rate of my facial hair. That might give you a good clue that perhaps…yeah, it’s sooner rather than later.

When asked when shooting is set to begin, Jackman said this:

they don’t have a firm date yet. My thing and I’ve told you and I’ve told everyone, it’s my last one, for me I want it to be perfect, so the moment I know it’s perfect, bang, we’ll go.I don’t have a firm date yet. My thing and I’ve told you and I’ve told everyone, it’s my last one, for me I want it to be perfect, so the moment I know it’s perfect, bang, we’ll go.

The Final Wolverine is set to hit theaters sometime in 2017.
