Wolverine Starts Filming in Three Weeks

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that Hugh Jackman has completed filming on director Baz Luhrmann’s Australia, co-starring Nicole Kidman, and will begin shooting X-Men Origins: Wolverine in just three weeks!

Leading up to the events of X-Men, “Wolverine” tells the story of Wolverine’s epically violent and romantic past, his complex relationship with Victor Creed, and the ominous Weapon X program. Along the way, Wolverine encounters many mutants, both familiar and new, including surprise appearances by several legends of the X-Men universe.

The Gavin Hood-directed spin-off hits theaters on May 1, 2009.
