With Darren Aronofsky all but locked into directing the upcoming WOLVERINE sequel (still jarring to have those words come from these fingers), it looks like talks have shifted to where the film will be shot.

According to Deadline, the film is set to shoot in New York, to aid both Aronofsky and star Hugh Jackman, with stages being built for the film. The project should begin shooting come March 2011, it looks like Fox is letting Aronofsky have all the time he needs to promote the upcoming Fox Searchlight release, BLACK SWAN, which has more than its fair share of Oscar buzz.

After these New York shoot dates are done, the film will then move to Japan, which will be where the majority of the film will be made. The film will follow the Wolverine-in-Japan storyline of the Wolverine miniseries penned by Chris Claremont from the early ‘80s, which in and of itself makes me excited. This storyline could be pitch perfect for Aronofsky, a filmmaker who has been striving to join a franchise project for years now. Hopefully this one lives up to the potential.
