Wolverine Rumors

It’s too close to April 1st to take this seriously, so consider this a big, fat rumor until further notice.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine hasn’t even been released yet, but there may already be talk of a sequel. That’s not news of course… it’s a guarantee on big films like this to have sequel plans in the pipeline. What may be a little strange this time is the possibility that Fox has already hired a screenwriter for the follow-up. And that he’s the writer of Slumdog Millionaire?

According to a possible scoop email sent into AICN, Academy Award winning screenwriter Simon Beaufoy may have been hired to write the Wolverine sequel. Apparently the scribe recently spoke at the UK’s Bradford International Film Festival saying he was “apprehensive about the project” for two reasons… one, working on a follow-up to a film that hasn’t even been completed yet is a strange and uncomfortable experience. And two, he didn’t even know what a wolverine was. Uh huh. Beaufoy reportedly had to be convinced to take the job by his agent.

I have a checklist of words and phrases that I want to include in post titles. Today was ‘poop chute’. Tomorrow just may be ‘perineum’. Oh, and what do you think of Beaufoy writing a Wolverine film?
