It's been known for some time that the plot for the upcoming 20th Century Fox Century sequel The Wolverine will take Hugh Jackman's Logan to Japan. Thanks to Fox CEO Tom Rothman for telling MTV News that, in fact, it will.

"We're doing the stage work in Australia," he explains of the recent announcement that will take the production work down under. " ...the location work will be in Japan."

At last year's CinemaCon, Jackman told that it was "too early to call" on Japan-based shooting due to the nation's catastrophic tsunami. Thankfully, it appears that the delay in shooting has made that possible.

"It's set in Japan," continues Rothman. "A great number of Japanese actors will be in it and it's based on the very famous run of the comics... I can just tell you on behalf of [Jackman], his goal is to make the ultimate, bad ass, berserker rage Wolverine."

Almost certainly referring to Frank Miller and Chris Claremont's 1982 "Wolverine" miniseries, Rothman goes on to say that it has not yet been decided wether or not the film with shoot in 3D.

To be directed by James Mangold with a script by Christopher McQuarrie and Mark Bomback, The Wolverine is set for release on July 26, 2013.

What do you guys think? Are you glad that they are gonna film in Japan. I am

So is this going to tie in with the last wolverine move? Seems like after watching Xmen first class they kinda discounted Wolverine origins and X3.
