- THE WOLVERINE TAKES ON A VIPER
The Wolverine -- which is getting a rewrite before it heads before cameras next year -- will have a very badass babe among its cast of characters.
Variety reports that Mark Bomback (Unstoppable, Live Free or Die Hard, Total Recall) has been brought aboard to rewrite the original screenplay penned by Oscar winner Christopher McQuarrie.
"Story will find Wolverine suffering from amnesia and searching for answers about his past in the Japanese criminal underworld where he finds both love and tragedy," according to the trade. "The entire cast will be comprised of Japanese and Japanese-American actors except for a newly-expanded character named Viper, who's the Caucasian secretary for Japan's Minister of Justice."
