Jackman plans Wolverine 2

Hugh Jackman confirms Wolverine sequel

Hugh Jackman has started work on a sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine, reports Variety.

The follow-up will reportedly be inspired by a samurai storyline from Marvel’s X-Men comic books.

The superhero sequel is one of several projects Jackman’s  company has set up with Fox. Also on the Australian actor’s plate are Personal Security, a thriller about a cop who acts as a bodyguard to a teen heiress; race car drama Drive, which Jackman has likened to a Steve McQueen film; and Carousel, a big screen adaptation of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical.
