The once and future Wolverine is gonna need all that muscle he's putting on—Jackman has just signed on for an untitled action flick that'll be written by half of the Lost brain trust.

According to Deadline, Fox picked up an untitled pitch from Cuse—writing his first screenplay since Lost ended its run—which will be directed by Shawn Levy, who's putting the finishing touches on Jackman's Real Steel.

This movie wouldn't start until after Jackman finished on Darren Aronofsky's The Wolverine, which is slated to start shooting later this year. I hope The Jackman's—yes, that's how I'm going to refer to him from now on—remembered how to walk away from explosions in slow motion. That's a handy skill to have.
