The Wolverine To Get Rewrite

Posted September 2, 2011 - By Joseph Baxter

Wolverine 2: Screenplay Finished, Shooting In January

It appears that the beleaguered prequel, The Wolverine will be getting its script tweaked. With delays galore plaguing this production, scribe, Mark Bomback will be brought in to rewrite the script by Christopher McQuarrie.

Known for his writing on the upcoming Len Wiseman Total Recall reboot, Bryan Singer's Jack the Giant Killer, and Live Free or Die Hard, Bomback has likely been brought on board to make logistical changes to the McQuarrie script.

The film will be a rendition of the famous 1982 Wolverine comic book mini-series which found the adamantium-clawed hero in Japan, searching for his past, while battling the evil ninja clan, The Hand.

Now, with director, James Mangold looking to get shooting with star, Hugh Jackman in Spring 2012, hopefully, what Bomback turns in will maintain the same spirit as the often-complimented McQuarrie script, which at one time, had Darren Aronofsky ready to helm.

    Glad they are keeping Jackman, unlike some of the other remakes that keep casting new people instead of keeping the originals.

    Good, considering how crappy the first one was I'm glad that they're taking precautions and redoing the script etc. I really want to be excited about this but as I said considering how Wolverine was god awful (Deadpool's a science experiment?? REALLY? ) I'm not expecting much.

    Interesting choice of directors. He's done some great movies. I hope they can actually do this correctly. I mean, sometimes, I wonder if these people have the reading ability of comic book level because, frankly, they seem to screw it up every time. The X-Men movies have been huge timeline debacles. I just wish Marvel studios would get back the rights to X-Men and Spider-Man and stop the madness.
