20th Century Fox have released an official marketing blurb to describe the X-men Origins: Wolverine movie. Nothing too radical here - but we do get a general picture of the storyline - there will be action, violence, a love interest and Victor Creed. Most noteworthy however is the last sentence, which tells us to expect a number of legendary X-men characters.
‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ is set to star Jackman and will be directed by Gavin Hood (Tsotsi, Rendition). The producers are Lauren Shuler Donner and Ralph Winter (who produced all three previous “X-Men” films), along with Jackman and his Seed Prods. producing partner, John Palermo. The film will be executive produced by Marvel Films’ Kevin Feige.
Leading up to the events of ‘X-Men’, ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ – written by David Benioff (The Kite Runner, Troy) – tells the story of Wolverine’s epically violent and romantic past, his complex relationship with Victor Creed, and the ominous Weapon X program. Along the way, Wolverine encounters many mutants, both familiar and new, including surprise appearances by several legends of the X-Men universe.
