Hugh Jackman Responds Re: Wolverine Reshoots

Wolverine Banner

The other day, I posed a question to you all regarding the curious status of the X-Men Origins: Wolverine reshoots that are going on. Usually a red flag, the shoots are a bit more extensive than normal reshoots, but the studio wanted press to visit to show how well they were going.

Now it appears that the studio, or Hugh Jackman working on his own accord, has decided to send a really classy email to Harry over at Aint It Cool regarding the reshoots. It reads as follows:

Hey Mate- Would you mind posting this? Thank you for your support! HJ

Hey everyone –

It’s Hugh Jackman, sending this note from freezing Vancouver. I have read a lot of your online comments regarding the footage that we are currently shooting and I share your passion for the Wolverine character and the movie – I owe it all to you guys!

I wanted to reach out and let you know that due to scheduling conflicts with certain cast members and location/weather considerations, we had to wait until now to shoot a couple of scenes. Please rest assured that WOLVERINE will be badass and hopefully meet all of your expectations. I am stoked by the positive response to the teaser, which clearly reflects the tone and scope of the film. If you like that, we’ve got much more in store!

In the meantime, here’s an exclusive shot of some characters you may recognize…

Cheers,

Hugh

Pure class.

Even cooler, Jackman – most definitely with the backing of the studio – sent along an awesome picture of the cast which you can click to largify:
