Jessica Biel joining Hugh Jackman in Wolverine sequel


Jessica Biel, out here at Comic-Con today to promote “Total Recall”, is said to have snagged the lead female role in “The Wolverine”.

In the James Mangold directed picture, Hugh Jackman’s clawed and hairy hero heads to Japan. There, he meets ‘Viper’, who is sort of a ‘frienemy’ to the X-Man.

Deadline, who broke the news, say filming is due to begin this Summer so Biel’s done will be sewn up pretty quick.
