When asked if there was a screenplay in place, the actor said there is no writer attached.
The actor revealed in September that this summer's X-Men: Days of Future Past might be his last time playing Logan. We'll have to wait for The Wolverine sequel script to see what the future holds for Hugh Jackman and his iconic character. If he does not appear in this follow-up, will there be a 'new' Wolverine? And what does his departure mean for the recently announced X-Men: Days of Future Past sequel X-Men: Apocalypse?

The studio is also developing an X-Force movie, which could easily tie into the X-Men franchise, and we reported yesterday that X-Men: Apocalypse has been set for a 2016 release date.
Back in September 2012, Mark Millar signed on with 20th Century Fox to consult on the studio's Marvel properties.
