Hugh Jackman revealed to his Twitter followers this weekend that The Wolverine starts shooting in August.
Stage work for the film will be done in Australia and location shooting will take place in Japan.
“It’s set in Japan,” Fox CEO Tom Rothman said previously. “A great number of Japanese actors will be in it and it’s based on the very famous run of the comics… I can just tell you on behalf of [Jackman], his goal is to make the ultimate, bad ass, berserker rage Wolverine.”
To be directed by James Mangold with a script by Christopher McQuarrie and Mark Bomback, The Wolverine is scheduled to hit theaters on July 26, 2013
