LOS ANGELES: “Wolverine 3” will see Hugh Jackman portraying the famed clawed mutant for the last time and the star wants the film’s script to be perfect.
Jackman, 46, said he would not start shooting the third film until the script is great.
“I’m sounding a little cagey because this is the last time I’m playing him, and I have just made the commitment to myself, really, and told everyone that until that script is perfect, until it is that perfect way to sign out. I’m not gonna start shooting.
“So that’s why I don’t wanna say ‘Yes’ for sure, because until Page 115, 120, whatever it is,” he said.
Jackman, however, added the studio already planned to start the principal photography next year. “The ultimate plan is let’s start shooting next year. I’m starting the training, I’m starting the eating and mentally really preparing for it,” he shared.
The actor said that he prepared something special for the movie. “I’m trying to do something with this that’s a little special, a little different. I’ve got a very, very strong idea of what that is.
I really have known for quite a long time how I want to finish this sort of odyssey that I’ve been on, this amazing journey. And I won’t let it fall anywhere in between. I won’t fall short of it,” he said.
“Wolverine 3” will be directed by James Mangold, with Lauren Shuler Donner tapped as producer.
The movie is scheduled for a release in the US on March 3, 2017.
