A Grizzled Hugh Jackman Takes a Stroll Down the Set of The Wolverine

A few days ago Hugh Jackman was barechested and racing down a beautiful stretch of beach that was standing in for a Japanese World War II POW camp. Days later, he’s strolling through the snow-strewn streets of a small logging town (actually just Picton, New South Wales re-dressed to look like one), looking every bit like a grizzled old buzzard just begging you to start trouble with him so he can whip out his claws and go to town.

In the film, Logan aka Wolverine begins a forbidden romance with a Japanese woman during his stay in Japan, something that puts him into conflict with the Yakuza and a dangerous mutant known as The Silver Samurai. The story is expected to be based on the ’80s mini-series comic book by Frank Miller and Chris Claremont.

The film will co-star Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima and Brian Tee.

James Mangold is directing, with the film set for July 26, 2013.

    Is there really a reason for the departure from Logan’s normal look? I suppose that emotions are now being relegated to how long a character’s hair and beard are.

      I’m sure it has to do with the story. Went into solitude and went Grizzly!

    If it has anything to do with The Wolverine Comic, this part could be pretty sick…
