Hollywood star Hugh Jackman will begin filming the next installment of his X-Men spin-off movies in Sydney next week.
“I am really happy to be home. It’s great to be shooting a movie of this magnitude here,” said Jackman, adding, “My role in the film is a stunt double role.”
The Wolverine sees Jackman reprise his most famous role as the superhero with metal claws. The film will be shot in Sydney with
an Aus$12.8 million grant from the Australian government.
Jackman, who admitted struggling to get into shape after packing on the pounds to play Jean Valjean in Les Miserables, said his role as Wolverine, which he first played 12 years ago, was the backbone of his career.
