X-men and Wolvie fans will surely be delighted to know that the Wolverine spin-off movie has been greenlit. The official title of the movie is X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
According to reports the movie will revolve around Wolverine’s confusing past, more specifically during the time that he finds out about the world of mutants and of course the infamous Weapon X program that turns ordinary people or mutants into lethal living weapons.
Exact plot details are still being kept under wraps but one thing is for sure, according to both producers and star Hugh Jackman, the story will not solely revolve around one mutant. Sabretooth will definitely figure prominently in the movie and also expect a number of cool mutant cameos of both new and established mutant characters.
The movie is going to be directed by Gavin Hood whose previous credits include Rendition and Tsotsi. The movie has a tentative release date of May 1, 2009.
