Wolverine movie gets underway

WolverineClose.jpgThe spin-off movie from the X-Men series for the Wolverine character has just gained a production deal, from Comic Book Movie:

Variety reports that Seed Productions, the newly named producing venture headed by Hugh Jackman and John Palermo has struck a new deal with 20th Century Fox. Seed Productions will be steering a David Benioff-scripted spinoff film based on the popular X-Men character of Wolverine.

Jackman and Palermo will produce Wolverine with Lauren Shuler Donner and Marvel’s Avi Arad.

It’ll be interesting to see how this movie takes Wolverine, and whether it is a future episode in his life, or his past. His creation is a story dying to be told, much like the Magneto spin off which is in writing. What are your opinions? Which way would you like the story to go?
