Hugh Jackman just helped X-Men Origins: Wolverine make $85 million opening weekend, and now comes word that Fox and Seed Productions are working on a sequel. Yes, part two of X-Men Origins: Wolverine could be at a theater near you, reports Variety.com. The Seed partners have begun planning the sequel, which they are squarely focusing on the samurai storyline originated in the comic series, and whose Japanese locale was teased after the film's final credits. A writer has yet to be hired. Seed will produce.
Is this what X-Men fans want? More Wolverine? I would easily have said yes, before seeing the movie, but now after ... I'm ready to move on.
Jackman's not done though. The website reports Fox just acquired Personal Security, written by Matt Lieberman. 'Jackman will star as a tough cop forced into bodyguard duty for a spoiled teen heiress who is receiving kidnapping threats. In other words ... the first 20 minutes of Taken (which was the worst part, right?).
