McQuarrie to Write New Wolverine Film

The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Christopher McQuarrie is to write the sequel to "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," and that the storyline will be based on the classic "Wolverine" graphic novel by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller. Hugh Jackman will of course return to star in the feature, which is set in Japan, as teased by one of the post-credits endings of "Origins."

McQuarrie, who won an Academy Award for his screenplay for Byan Singer's "The Usual Suspects," also collaborated with Singer on Jackman's first Wolverine film, "X-Men," for which the writer declined a screen credit.

According to THR, Jackman and McQuarrie met to discuss the film and were inspired by the themes made accessible by the Claremont & Miller story.
