It reportedly will not just be small re-shoots for 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' but rather a major one that will be opened for press.
More re-shoots will be done to the highly-anticipated "X-Men Origins: Wolverine". Words have been spreading that The 20th Century Fox are interfering with the direction Gavin Hood is heading for the film, and now "extensive" re-shoots are required, Collider reported.
The first re-shoot was scheduled to take place January 12 in Vancouver, Canada but this time the studio are prepping a wider range of shoots where journalists will be allowed to cover. When contacted by Collider, the studio's representative said that a re-shoot has always been in their agenda, intended to capture specific weather conditions.
More about the mystery surrounding the re-shoot is eased by actor Dominic Monaghan" who told PopWrapBlog that it is "a bit of both" re-shoots and new scenes. "I think the best thing I can tell you is that it's a flashback scene," he revealed.
Beside the rumors on Gavin not getting his vision through, there were also whispers that "Superman" director Richard Donner was brought in to the set to do some directing consultation. But Donner quickly debunked the rumor, saying "I was there to do nothing but help Gavin anyway I could, as a producer and never as a director. I would never step on another director, and I didn't go until Gavin asked me to come over and help him."
Starring Hugh Jackman in the titular character, "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" is scheduled to come in U.S. theaters on May 1.
