Origins: Wolverine is an upcoming superhero film
based on the fictional Marvel Comics character
Wolverine, due for release on May 1, 2009. The
film is directed by Gavin Hood and stars Hugh
Jackman as the title character. It is a prequel
to the X-Men film trilogy, focusing on the mutant
Wolverine and his time with Team X, before Wolverine's
skeleton was bonded with the indestructible metal
adamantium. The film was mostly shot in Australia
and New Zealand.
roughly twenty years before X-Men, the film will
focus on Wolverine's violent past, and his early
encounters with William Stryker (Danny Huston).
The Weapon X program and his interactions with
other mutants will be explored, including his
complex relationship with Sabretooth (Liev Schreiber).
Jackman as Logan / Wolverine, the mutant and future
X-Man. Jackman, who played Wolverine in the previous
films, has also become producer of the film via
his company Seed Productions, and earned $20 million
for the film. Jackman underwent a high intensity
weight training regimen to bulk up for his role.
He changed the program to shock the body into
change and also performed cardiovascular workouts.
He woke up each morning a 4am to eat one of the
small number of protein-based meals he was allowed
each day. Jackman worked out in a Queenstown gym
where he would arrive daily at 6am. He stayed
in character and made noises while exercising.
Software is developing a video game based on the
film, which Activision will publish. Marc Guggenheim
wrote the script.
The official trailer of the film has been confirmed
to be released on December 12
speculated that there could be a sequel, which
may be set in Japan. Such a location was the subject
of Claremont and Miller's series, which was not
in the first film as Jackman felt “what
we need to do is establish who [Logan] is and
find out how he became Wolverine". Jackman
stated the Claremont-Miller series is his favorite
Wolverine story. He added another Wolverine film
would be a follow-up rather than continuing on
from X-Men: The Last Stand. The inclusion of Deadpool
and Gambit also leads to the possibilities of
their own spin-offs.
'heartbroken' over stolen film - 8th April 2009
- The Hollywood star who plays superhero Wolverine
said he was "heartbroken" that his new
X-Men movie was leaked on the Internet a month
before its official release.
Australian actor Hugh Jackman, who plays the mutant
in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," is also
angry and determined that the bad guys who stole
the film and leaked it will be brought to justice.
"It's a serious crime and there's no doubt
it's very disappointing -- I was heartbroken by
it," Jackman told reporters at a promotion
for the movie in Sydney.
The leaked version of the 20th Century Fox Films
action movie was reportedly downloaded tens of
thousands of times within a day of being posted
on file-sharing websites at the end of March.
"Obviously, people are seeing an unfinished
film," Jackman said. "It's like a Ferrari
without a paint job."
The 40-year-old star, named Sexiest Man Alive
by People magazine last year, said he was convinced
the culprit would be tracked down.
"The FBI (US Federal Bureau of Investigation)
are on to it and they're taking it very, very
seriously," he said. "Rest assured that
person will be found."
Jackman unveiled 20 minutes of completed footage
from the film to about 600 fans and media on Sydney
Harbour's Cockatoo Island at the start of a global
promotion tour ahead of the film's official release
at the end of the month.
Meanwhile, the film industry's response to the
leak has already claimed at least one casualty
-- a US entertainment columnist fired for reviewing
a stolen copy downloaded from the Internet.
Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, which owns
both 20th Century Fox Films and Fox News, said
it had "promptly terminated" writer
Roger Friedman for the column posted on Fox News'
website last week.
"We, along with 20th Century Fox Film Corporation,
have been a consistent leader in the fight against
piracy and have zero tolerance for any action
that encourages and promotes piracy," News
Corporation told AFP in an emailed statement.
"When we advised Fox News of the facts they
took immediate action, removed the post, and promptly
terminated Mr Friedman," it said.
The "X-Men" film, based on the eponymous
comic book characters, was apparently spread with
BitTorrent file-sharing technology that lets people
exchange large data files between computers in
a fashion called peer-to-peer.
