‘The Wolverine’ sequel is filming, will be R-rated, set in the future, western tone says Simon Kinberg

Fans are exciting about Hugh Jackman’s alleged last run as Wolverine in the sequel to The Wolverine, which is reportedly now filming. Speaking with Collider, produer Simon Kinberg as the the press day for X-Men: Apocalypse in London, Kinberg revealed that Wolverine 3 has indeed already begun filming, teasing a few details.

“It’s a very radical, bold, different Wolverine than you’ve ever seen in any of these movies.”

Collider noted that Kinberg wouldn’t confirm that Patrick Stewart is co-starring in the movie, he did confirm that it will be R-rated and teased the film’s setting.

“I’m not sure what I’m allowed to say about that. I will agree with you that Patrick Stewart was rumored to be a part of that film. It takes place in the future, and as you and others have reported, it is an R-rated movie. It’s violent, it’s kind of like a western in its tone. It’s just a very cool, different film.”

Both of these factors continue to point to the long running rumor that the story will be derivation of Old Man Logan, one the fans are clamoring for.

Jackman, 47, was recently revealed to a have role of some kind in X-Men: Apocalypse and will be ending his long run as the popular mutant.

Director James Mangold returns and, after shooting an R-rated version of The Wolverine but also shot alternate takes to make sure they had the option of going PG-13 if they wanted to, will now go full on with the planned R-rating after the success of Deadpool.

The untitled Wolverine film also stars Boyd Holbrook as the principal villain, as well as Richard E. Grant, Stephen Merchant, and Eriq La Salle and opens in theaters on March 3, 2017
