X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE
Actor/producer Hugh Jackman sent an email to Ain't It Cool News about what was up with those reshoots along with a new promotional photo from the film showing Sabretooth, Silver Fox, Gambit and Deadpool. Jackman wrote, "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."
Speaking of Sabretooth, actor Liev Schreiber talked to MTV about some of why he wanted to get in touch with his savage side. "When everyone said they were shocked that I wanted to be a mutant in the new X-Men movie, I was not surprised at all, and would do it over and over again," Schreiber said. "The only hard part is all the exercise."
Directed by Gavin Hood, release date May 1, 2009.

Actory J.K. Simmons told MTV that he'd be back chomping cigars as J. Jonah Jameson in the fourth film, slated to start shooting in 2010. "We've definitely brainstormed ideas for Triple-J, but I have no desire to make Triple-J more of the focus of those movies," he said. "The amount that I did in 1, 2 and 3, is just exactly right. Like be the wolf. Come in, blow in, do a week, blow out, be the comic relief, and hit the road. And let Tobey and everybody else do the heavy lifting."
Directed by Sam Raimi, sreen play by David Lindsay-Abaire, release date May 2011.
