Washington: ‘X-Men’ star Hugh Jackman has revealed that the shooting for ‘The Wolverine’ will begin in October, but it is not yet confirmed as to who will direct the new movie.

The Australian actor, who has played the mutant character in four earlier films, including three in the `X-Men` franchise and one stand alone movie – said the movie has been beset with problems.

`Black Swan` director Darren Aronofsky dropped out of the project claiming the shoot would interfere with his family life. In addition, the Japanese earthquake led to further delays as the movie was to be shot there.

“We shoot in October, so it will probably come out a year after that. That’s usually around the timeline,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

“Wolverine is coming back, so the claws are out. The chops aren’t grown yet but I’m starting to - the guns are getting there,” he added.
