Franchise producer Simon Kinberg, confirmed to Collider that not only will the Wolverine 3 carry its previously-rumored R rating, but movie is filming at this moment. James Mangold directs from a script by David James Kelly.
“I’m not sure what I’m allowed to say about that. I will agree with you that Patrick Stewart was rumored to be a part of that film. It takes place in the future, and as you and others have reported, it is an R-rated movie. It’s violent, it’s kind of like a western in its tone. It’s just a very cool, different film,” Kinberg said.
Cast includes Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart as Wolverine and Professor Charles Xavier. They’re joined by Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant, Eriq La Salle and Elise Neal.
