Last week we caught our first glimpses of the sets from James Mangold's The Wolverine, including a model of an apparent prisoner-of-war camp. Now that camp is built and ready for action, and thanks to an Australian news report, we even get to see some of the shoot.
Shooting for the long-awaited flick, which many fans hope will redeem the character after 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, is finally underway in New South Wales, Australia. We're all excited, but it seems Hugh Jackman is particularly pumped.
we're on day 1 of shooting.....wolverine is back...feel so pumped about this one......never felt so ready!!!! will keep y'all posted!!!— Hugh Jackman (@RealHughJackman) July 30, 2012
It's a big event out there, so much so that the prime minister even paid a visit to the set (the shoot is bringing in a lot of money), and to help document the occasion a local news station filed a report from nearby, complete with a somewhat distant but still clear view of the POW camp set. In between interviews with locals you can see shots of men in World War II-period costumes running after a truck and otherwise hanging around the camp, which, to judge from the surrounding set pieces, is definitely located in Japan. No big glimpse of Jackman yet, but you can bet he'll be breaking out his claws soon enough.
