"We have our final script," Jackman grinned like a proud papa this week, announcing his satisfaction with the untitled Wolverine prequel that he'll begin filming in late 2007.
Little is known about the Wolverine spinoff flick, which -- like a similarly conceived Magneto prequel in development -- will tell the early story of an X-Men character while continuing to employ the fan-favorite star who brought him to life. Jackman's comments, however, would seem to suggest that controversial "Last Stand" director Brett Ratner will not be returning."
We're now finding a director, and probably in a year or so," Jackman added. "I'm doing a movie next year with Baz Luhrmann, but after that we'll get into it."
