Print this article The DVD release of the film "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" is coinciding with news that an award-winning screenwriter has been brought on board for the sequel.
Actor Hugh Jackman, who played the title character in the Origins film as well as in the X-Men movies, has secured screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie to write the sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine, states the Hollywood Reporter. Jackman is a producer of the film.
The clout is being added to the as yet unfilmed sequel, so perhaps fans of this summer's Wolverine should be heartened by the addition of McQuarrie, the author won an Academy Award for his "The Usual Suspects" script in 1995, and he'll bring his inventive way of weaving a tale to the sequel.
Though it was action-packed, this summer's X-Men Origins film provided some answers to fans of the movie franchise who have been intrigued by Wolverine's mysterious backstory.
"Wolverine" also introduced a family dynamic with the character of Victor Creed, the mutant's brother played by Liev Schreiber. The DVD comes out on September 15 and is a must-see for anyone who couldn't get enough of Jackman's Wolverine in previous installments.
Also, for those more interested in the actor than the character, Sci-Fi Weekly said Jackman was "more sexy than he has been in past X-Men films."
