…and apparently goes around using words like “stoked” and calling people “mate”, which I’ve always heard was some kind of Australian stereotype, but apparently it’s not an entirely wrong one. Anyhoo. Being that Harry Knowles’ AICN is the apparently the unquestionable God-like website of all movie fandom that all peons aspire to be, and FOX Studios knows this, they’ve dispatched their man Hugh Jackman, star of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”, to send a personal email to the head geek to explain the current reshoots on “Wolverine” that has all the Interwebs abuzzin’ with bad buzz.
Here’s Jackman’s email:
Hey everyone –
It’s Hugh Jackman, sending this note from freezing Vancouver. I have read a lot of your online comments regarding the footage that we are currently shooting and I share your passion for the Wolverine character and the movie – I owe it all to you guys!
I wanted to reach out and let you know that due to scheduling conflicts with certain cast members and location/weather considerations, we had to wait until now to shoot a couple of scenes. Please rest assured that WOLVERINE will be badass and hopefully meet all of your expectations. I am stoked by the positive response to the teaser, which clearly reflects the tone and scope of the film. If you like that, we’ve got much more in store!
Hugh, as I like to call him when we’re sitting around drinking beer and putting shrimp on the barbie, also sent over the below pic of Wolvie and the super soldiers of the Weapon X program. I haven’t a clue why everyone’s eyes are downcast except for Wolvie’s, but I’m assuming they all saw money on the floor and are trying to figure out how to get their grubby evil little super soldier hands on it. Wolvie, meanwhile, is just too badass to look, cause Wolvie ain’t got no need for money.
