We reported last week that Christopher McQuarrie had completed the script for X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2 and now it seems the star has read it. io9 reported from a Repo Men press conference where actor Liev Schrieber, who played Victor Creed/Sabertooth in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, revealed he recently met with Hugh Jackman, who said he had read the script for the sequel.
Hugh Jackman reads the Wolverine 2 script
I just had dinner with [Hugh Jackman] last night and Hugh read the first draft of the script and I was really excited about it. It's still not clear whether or not Victor will be present in the Japan storyline. In the Japan storyline as I remember it from the Wolverine comics, Victor wasn't there. So I don't know, of course I've got my fingers crossed because I love the character so much, to have the chance to do it again would be a lot of fun, but I'm not sure.
Our previous report revealed that production on X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2 would start in January 2011. We'll be sure to keep you posted on any new developments surrounding this upcoming sequel as soon as we have more information.
The Wolverine was released July 26th, 2013 and stars Hugh Jackman, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima, Hiroyuki Sanada, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Brian Tee, Hal Yamanouchi, Will Yun Lee. The film is directed by James Mangold.
