    X-Men Origins: Wolverine a go for 2009!

    Wolverine Set for May 1, 2009


    Source: Variety

    October 18, 2007



    20th Century Fox has set a May 1, 2009 release date for Hugh Jackman starrer X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which director Gavin Hood (Rendition, Tsotsi) begins shooting later this year. David Benioff wrote the script.

    "Wolverine" is expected to feature many other mutants -- some new to the film franchise and some from one or more of the three "X-Men" films. Liev Schreiber is reportedly in final talks to take on the role of a younger version of nemesis William Stryker, played by Brian Cox in X2.

    As of now, the only other film staking out the May 1, 2009, date is Disney's animated film G-Force.

    The film explores the claw-wielding character Wolverine's violent and romantic past, and his complex relationship with Victor Creed and the ominous Weapon X program, as well as his encounters with other mutants.

    Hood will start shooting in Australia before moving to New Zealand and, later, to New Orleans.

    Producing are Lauren Shuler Donner and Ralph Winter, producers of the "X-Men" movies, along with Jackman and producing partner John Palermo through their Seed Productions. Marvel's Kevin Feige will executive produce.
    Sounds great! Can't wait for the film!

    The way the title is (X-Men Origins), this could be leaving the door open to do the other "Origins" films, like the rumored Magneto film.

    that would be nice, but i think they won't because they kindof made it sound in the movies like his powers were the "ferel" side and the claws were added by Canada...i now the true story, but thats how they made it look
    Personally

    I hope they show Logan w/o his shirt :P

    I read Origins and really liked that. But I am kinda' not familar with what happened after that. I know he was in WW1, and WW2, then the Omega project, Weapon X, and Japan. Just don't know details.

    Do you guys think the story will be told from his beginnings to today, or will it be more of how Logan is now, and having flashbacks, trying to figure out his past?
