While details have been very thin on the ground at the moment, Hugh Jackman will popping the claws once again in a third Wolverine movie, set to hit our screens March 3rd 2015. The Wolverine director James Mongold will be returning, and he has revealed on Twitter that the currently untitled installment in the X-Men franchise will begin filming "early next year". Nothing is known about the movie at this stage, but Patrick Stewart has said that it could see his Professor X team with Jackman's fast healing mutant, a role the actor previously stated he had doubts about playing for much longer before back tracking and saying he wanted to play the character until he dies. No matter if his feeling on the role change again, I think we can all agree no one else can play the character at this stage. »

One of Fox’s upcoming standalone properties that’s spawned one terrible prequel (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and one fantastic sequel (The Wolverine) is prepping another outing for the mutton-chopped mutant in The Wolverine 3. At least, that’s what it’s being referred to until an official title is announced.
Wolvie’s next solo encounter is one of the most anticipated sequels in the whole of comic book moviedom. So, it’s with increasing regularity that its director, James Mangold, often fields questions on its status via social media. The most common of which is: when is it going into production? Thanks to the wonder of Twitter, we now have an answer.
@R_0_B_89 early next year.

Last March, Mangold offered a similar – if less specific – response to the same query, when he revealed that Wolverine 3 would begin shooting after X-Men: Apocalypse. Currently, all things mutant are »

Despite having a March 3, 2017 release date, we’ve heard very little about The Wolverine 2. Director James Mangold and star Hugh Jackman will return to tell a new story that centers on everyone’s favorite mutant but that’s pretty much all we know for sure. There have been rumors, of course, but with three X-Universe films coming out before […]

We know this because of two things. One: Mangold politely answered a fan’s question on Twitter, saying the Wolverine sequel starts filming “early next year.” And two: You’re going to go see The Force Awakens on the weekend of release, and there’s no use pretending you aren’t.
@R_0_B_89 early next year.

Both Jackman and Patrick Stewart have previously talked about a likelihood of Stewart having a role in the film, so take that for read. I’ve been trying to dig up information on what the actual storyline will be and the best I can get is “They’re starting from a well-liked run of the comics but developing this in new directions. »

Mangold posted a tweet today which said shooting on the project, his second film with Jackman in the character following their collaboration on 2013's "The Wolverine," will begin early 2016 - a full year out from its current March 2017 release date.

2016 promises to be an epic year for the X-Men franchise. For the first time in the history of the series, 20th Century Fox will release three films, with Deadpool arriving first in February, X-Men: Apocalypse kicking off in May, and Channing Tatum's Gambit wrapping things up in October. That doesn't mean there will be any kind of lull. Wolverine 3 has already been given a March 2017 release date. And today, director James Mangold confirmed that the movie will shoot in the early half of next year,
The Wolverine 3 script is still in development, and we haven't heard any official plot details as of yet. Patrick Stewart has teased that his version of Professor X will team up with Logan in this latest adventure. And star Hugh Jackman, who will be reprising his role for an 8th time (though that number could reach 11 depending on how many 2016 movies he appears in »
After the X-men film universe was almost killed by the poor reception for X-men: The Last Stand and the Wolverine origin movie, James Mangold and Hugh Jackman teamed up and redeemed the character with The Wolverine. We already knew that 20th Century Fox had given the greenlight for a third film in the standalone franchise, but now we have the good news as to when it will be getting underway. In a brief exchange on Twitter, Mangold was asked when production would begin on the sequel to The »

Hugh Jackman is the new Bill Nye the Science Guy. Actually, let me rephrase, he should be the next Bill Nye. We'd listen to him talk about the world of science any day, perhaps after he eventually retires his adamantium claws, if that ever happens. The Wolverine actor can be seen in this weekend.s sci-fi release, Chappie. In the film from Neil Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium), he plays the villain, a jock-type engineer who.s both trying to build the next line of robotic weaponry and terrified of the implications of artificial intelligence. In preparation for the role, the beloved actor of stage and screen researched all he could about the insane technology that real-life scientists are developing. And as he says, "It kinda blew my mind." Speaking with Cinema Blend during the press junket for Chappie, Jackman described some of the crazy contraptions he discovered, including: The thing »
Hugh Jackman is set to reprise his Wolverine role in the upcoming "The Wolverine" sequel. He'll also likely return for "X-Men: Apocalypse."

And now that Deadpool is getting his own movie, Jackman says that he's "open to the idea" of a potential cameo, mentioning that he loves the volatile relationship between Wolverine and Deadpool. "Deadpool" co-stars Tj Miller and Gina Carano, and is set to hit theaters on February 12th, 2016. »

For Rosamund Pike, it seems that not bagging the Best Actress Oscar at this year’s Academy Awards hasn’t hurt her future prospects. Variety reports that she’s now entered talks to star opposite Christian Bale in The Deep Blue Good-By. The adaptation is currently set up over at Fox with Chernin Entertainment and Appian Way set to produce.
The Wolverine director James Mangold will be at the helm, for what’s being touted as the start of a potential new franchise. The Deep Blue Good-By will adapt the first of John D. MacDonald’s Travis McGee series of novels. Each successive book traces the story of McGee (represented onscreen by Bale), a self-described “salvage consultant” who recovers others’ property for a fee and along the way gets into trouble fighting bad guys and wooing women.
For an in-depth look at the novel, check out the synopsis below (via »

Oscar-nominated "Gone Girl" star Rosamund Pike is in talks to headline Fox's "The Deep Blue Good-by" opposite Christian Bale. Directed by James Mangold ("3:10 to Yuma," "Walk the Line," "The Wolverine"), this is based on John D. MacDonald's 1964 novel, the first in a series of 21 books that follow "savage consultant" Travis McGee (Bale), a bachelor who recovers other people's property for money and gets mixed up with women and criminals along the way. (Variety reports here.) The script is penned by cult crime writer Dennis Lehane ("Gone Baby Gone," "Shutter Island"), with Scott Frank chiseling away at a recent draft. No details yet on who exactly Pike will play, but she will be the female lead here. Pike will shoot "The Deep Blue Good-by" before heading into the plane crash survival drama "The Mountain Between Us" (also co-penned by Scott Frank) opposite Charlie Hunnam. She also has a »

Director James Mangold (The Wolverine, 3:10 To Yuma), aside from being attached to the next solo Wolverine flick, has also had his sights set on directing the first in a mystery series featuring sleuth Travis McGee.

Catching up with Hans Zimmer at the Oscars this past weekend, MTV managed to grab a few comments from the composer about his work on the upcoming DC ensemble Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, asking him whether he plans to develop individual themes for each of the heroes.
“I’m trying, I’ll put it that way,” states Zimmer, who has previously stated that he plans to tackle Superman, whilst handing Batman over to Junkie Xl. “We’re in early days. But yes, of course, ideally that’s what you want to do.”
Zimmer was also asked if Warner Bros. has him down to score any future DC movies, with the composer responding that: “Look, the studio is going to hedge its bet, if I ruin this one…. And at the same time you have to remember I come from ten years of doing Batman, so it’s really »

An R-rated sci-fi movie that was initially pitched as a comedy (though the trailers show that might not be the case), featuring South African hip hop duo Die Antwoord, "Slumdog Millionaire" nerd Dev Patel, "Alien" survivor Sigourney Weaver and "The Wolverine" himself Hugh Jackman? Certainly, whatever Neill Blomkamp is cooking up, it's going to be distinctly his own. And today a few more peeks have arrived for the film. A few TV spots continue the buzz for the flick about the titular piece of artificial intelligence who becomes embroiled in political battle with the fate of humanity getting tossed into the mix. Thematically, it looks like Blomkamp's film will wrestle with the notion of what happens when machines replicate the intelligence and instincts of humans. But never fear, there will also be explosions. "Chappie" arrives on March 6th. Watch below. »

Earlier this week, X-Men: Days of Future Past star Patrick Stewart revealed an interesting piece of news that he has been talking with 20th Century Fox about starring in Wolverine 3 alongside Hugh Jackman. While it isn't known if this is set in stone or not, Hugh Jackman addressed the rumor while doing press for Chappie. Interestingly enough, the actor didn't deny the news, stating that he thinks Wolverine's relationship with Professor X is well worth exploring in Wolverine 3. Here's what he had to say below.
"I'm not going to deny it. I've learned over the years to try and put my best poker face on. By the way, play poker with me if you want to win some money, because I'm terrible. But, I've always seen it as a really important relationship, and we started with that and I think it's a really important one. I think it would be »
If you love heart-pounding, non-stop action, you’re gonna love No Tears For The Dead!
From Jeong-beom Lee, the creator of the internationally-acclaimed action thriller The Man From Nowhere, comes the amazing box office hit No Tears For The Dead, debuting on Blu-ray and DVD February 17 from Cj Entertainment. A hit man traumatized from accidentally killing a young girl during a job is given the mission to eliminate her mother and begins the ultimate fight to save her life. The film’s all-star cast includes superstar Jang Dong-gun (Friend, Warrior’s Way), Kim Min-hee (Helpless, Very Ordinary Couple), Brian Tee (The Wolverine, upcoming: Jurassic World), Kim Hee-won (The Man from Nowhere, My Way) and Kim Joon-seong (Innocent Blood, Man-choo).
The New York Times said of No Tears For The Dead:
“this is the kind of sleek, precisely constructed genre work that’s gone missing from American summer movie”

It seems the events of X-Men: Days Of Future Past have allowed Fox to use the character of Wolverine in two separate movie timelines. We know that X-Men: Apocalypse will focus on the younger versions of Xavier, Magneto, Mystique and co., but if Patrick Stewart's comments are anything to go by, James Mangold's follow up to The Wolverine will find the older version of Professor Charles Xavier teaming up with Logan. During a press junket for Neill Blomkamp's Chappie, JoBlo quizzed Hugh Jackman about Stewart's recent revelations, and although he doesn't outright confirm things, from his comments I'd say it's safe to assume we're looking at a Wolvie/Xavier double act! Jackman also suggests that he's looking forward to exploring the "important" relationship between the characters. "I'm not going to deny it. I've learned over the years to try and put my best poker face on. By the way, »
