With an opening weekend of $87 milion, one could assume that a “X Men Origins: Wolverine,” sequel was forthcoming. And, of course, it is.
Variety is reporting that the sequel will take Wolverine to Japan, where the character was trained as a samurai. Fox says they are searching for a writer, but “Slumdog Millionaire,” writer Simon Beaufoy says he’s secured the job.
Jackman has a bunch of other projects that he has signed on to, including a remake of the Rogers and Hammerstein musical “Carousel,” which, reportedly, has Jackman chomping at the bit to reteam with his Oscar opening monolgoue co-performer Anne Hathaway.
