Fox Responds To Wolverine Delay Rumors
Yesterday here we brought you the news that the upcoming Wolverine solo movie might be facing delays. Our sources told us that Baz Luhrman’s Australia was occupying all of Fox’s stages in Australia, where Wolverine is to shoot, and as a result the film might not get done before the SAG strike this summer, delaying it for the foreseeable future.
20th Century Fox took exception with our story, and contacted us to let us know that this isn’t true. Not exactly. Here’s what they told us about the future status of Wolverine:
“We are still planning to begin principal photography in January. We have every intention of keeping this on schedule. Australia is a Fox production as well, so we will work with that area of our production group as best we can to make both production schedules work (not to mention availablility of our star of both - Hugh Jackman).”
Note that they don’t exactly contradict our story. They do however sound committed to making it work, even if Australia’s ongoing production gets in the way. Whether or not it’ll work out that way, I guess we’ll have to wait till January and see if Wolvy starts shooting. Good luck Fox, I for one would love to see more of growling Hugh Jackman.
