Gavin Hood, the South African director of the acclaimed “Tsotsi” has just landed himself the plum job of the first “X-Men” spin-off film, “Wolverine”, with Hugh Jackman set to again star as the near-indestructible mutant – as reported in “Variety” today.

Hugh will return to the role after completing work on “Australia”, which he is currently filming with Nicole Kidman – Production is scheduled to begin in November, with an eye for a Summer 2008 release. Jackman is quoted as saying: “I have long been a fan of Gavin’s work and know he will make a masterful film with the character intensity and action beats the fans expect”. “Wolverine” is from a script by David Benioff (“25th Hour”, “Troy”).
