Hugh Jackman Goes Shirtless on The Wolverine Set


Following up on yesterday’s set video from James Mangold’s upcoming “The Wolverine” movie, currently shooting Down Under (standing in for Japan, natch), comes these new set images featuring star Hugh Jackman all bare chested and getting the ladies no doubt all afluttered no doubt as he runs around the film’s Japanese POW camp set. Hey, if you gotta go top bare, mind as well do it on a sunny beach, right?

“The Wolverine” finds Jackman back as the mutant with the deadly claws. This time around, the Canucklehead lands in Japan, where he tangles with the criminal element known as the Yakuza, dudes with glowing Samurai swords (and one Samurai in particular), and falls in love with lovely Japanese gals. The ladies dig the hair. And Wolverine’s got hair to spare.

The film features a screenplay by “The Usual Suspects'” Christopher McQuarrie, and co-stars Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Brian Tee, Rila Fukushima, and Hal Yamanouchi. It’s currently set for Summer 2013.

Check out some of the set pics below, then get more over at The Telegraph.

    Another WWII Flashback, that will probably tie into why he’s in Japan in the first place. I can deal with that.
