Earlier last week, studio 20th Century Fox claimed a “Wolverine 3” movie will go into production with or without its signature actor Hugh Jackman. Now, the studio has announced that David James Kelly has been hired to write the screenplay, James Mangold will direct, and Hugh Jackman will reprise his role as Logan/Wolverine. It seems the actor and studio have hammered out some kind of arrangement.
No details have been released on the plot at this time.
“Wolverine 3” will arrive in theaters on March 3, 2017. The film stars Hugh Jackman. David James Kelly will write the screenplay, while James Mangold returns to direct.
