London: Hugh Jackman has spoken out to allay fears that his second ‘Wolverine’ movie is in trouble, claiming it is still on track to be made.

The project was thrown into jeopardy by the departure of director Darren Aronofsky and the recent disasters in Japan.

The Australian actor is due to reprise his role as the clawed superhero for a sequel to 2009`s ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’, which will see much of the action set in Japan.

Jackman insists that studio bosses at Fox are pressing ahead with plans to secure a new director despite the inevitable delays to filming.

"So now we`re out looking for a director. We were pretty much ready to go. The script is fantastic - the best we`ve ever had,” the Daily Express quoted Jackman as telling Coming Soon.
