The Wolverine director James Mangold has already told us a fair amount of what to expect from the movie, when it is released later this year, and now he has been talking more about the film. James has admitted that he feels like he can reboot the tone of The Wolverine, as it is mostly set in Japan.
Mangold was chatting to MTV, when he explained, “We've given Logan a new haircut, a shorter haircut that I think is a more handsome haircut. The wonderful opportunity for me with this film is that 90 percent of it takes place in Japan, and even though other elements remain constant from the other pictures, namely Hugh Jackman, we kind of got our chance to reboot the tone and go a little darker and a little deeper than they've gone before with this character. That was exciting for me.”
As well as Hugh Jackman, The Wolverine also stars Hiroyuki Sanada, Tao Okamoto, Rila [frick]ushima, Will Yun Lee, Hal Yamanouchi, Brian Tee, and Svetlana Khodchenkova.
The Wolverine is directed by James Mangold, based on a screenplay by Christopher McQuarrie and is set to be released on July 26 in both the US and the UK.
