James Mangold's 'The Wolverine' Now Set for Late July 2013 Opening
Briefly: 20th Century Fox has apparently set a release date for The Wolverine, the back-to-life Wolverine spin-off, with James Mangold (Walk the Line, 3:10 to Yuma, Knight and Day) now set to direct. It will hit theaters July 26th, 2013, same weekend as the Dirty Dancing remake, and a week after Joseph Kosinski's Horizons. The update comes from Box Office Mojo (via SlashFilm) and means that Fox is moving forward with this, finally getting things set to start up this summer with Mangold at the helm, since its been a bit off after Darren Aronofsky left. Hugh Jackman is set to star in the story about Logan's adventures in Japan.
