Wolverine 2 Delayed

Wolverine 2 Delayed

Reports are coming out now claiming that filming on the sequel to the 2009 film ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ starring Hugh Jackman and directed by Gavin Hood has been delayed. It was previously expected that the film would enter principal photography during the second half of 2011 but it now appears that this will be pushed out until the first half of 2012.

The sequel currently has James Mangold attached as the director, his previous films include ‘Knight and Day’ as well as ‘3:10 to Yuma’ and the Johnny Cash biopic ‘Walk the Line’. Difficulty with location scouting in Japan where much of the film is expected to take place is being blamed for the delay specifically the difficulty in weather related considerations.

With these concerns in mind the production may switch the location to areas of Canada, or possibly settle upon a combination of both Canada and Japan.

After a recent change in directors from Darren Aronofsky to Gavin Hood, the troubles continue for this project, well bring you more news as it breaks here at accessreel.com

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
