WOLVERINE sequel now has a writer
You may not be familiar with Christopher McQuarrie's name, but you are probably familiar with his work. McQuarrie wrote the screenplays for THE USUAL SUSPECTS, VALKRYIE, and THE WAY OF THE GUN (which he also directed).
Well, Christopher "I write solid thrillers" McQuarrie has just agreed to be a part of what is his highest profile project to date; he will write the screenplay for the WOLVERINE sequel that will follow the badass and furry protagonist trying to make sense of life while living in Japan and fighting ninjasoften (because that is what you do in comic book movie Japan).
McQuarrie's previous screenplays came out pretty well, so I consider this move a good thing for the X-MEN franchise. Also, I liked the first WOLVERINE, which came out earlier this summer - it had some clear flaws, but overall I was still pretty entertained by the film. So I'm excited for a WOLVERINE sequel, and happy to see that it has a writer with a decent resume for the job.
