Though trade reports suggested she was as good as glued to a contract, seems Jessica Biel won’t be doing “The Wolverine” after all, according to a report surfacing tonight at Collider.

Biel was expected to play ‘Viper’, sort of a half-friend half-enemy of the hairy brute.

Talks between the “Total Recall” actress and 20th Century Fox have broken down, the site reported this evening. Fox and director James Mangold are now talking to a number of other actresses about filling Biel’s spot.

“The Wolverine” is expected to get underway in a month’s time – shooting occurring in both Australia and Japan – so expect the replacement to be named fairly quickly.
