The long-awaited Wolverine film has taken one more step toward getting made, as Gavin Hood, the man who directed the 2005 Best Foreign Film Tsotsi, has been tapped to direct the feature. Hugh Jackman is on board, and the script is apparently right and ready, so we're close to getting shooting.
The film will apparently be a blend of the Wolverine origin story, with a heavy dose of Weapon X thrown in for good measure. Wolvie fans will most likely have a geekgasm when they hear that some of the source material will also include the Frank Miller Weapon X series. We await more news...with bated breath.
