Mark Bomback to Rewrite The Wolverine

The film, a sequel to 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine is said to have a heavy focus on Japan, inspired by Frank Miller and Chris Claremont's 1982 miniseries.

Bomback's upcoming writing credits include Jack the Giant Killer and Total Recall, the former of which features rewrites by McQuarrie.

Though nothing is set in stone as far as production goes, The Wolverine will hopefully begin filming in early 2012.
