The depicter of the villain in the first film reveals that he has had a conversation with lead actor Hugh Jackman about fitting Sabretooth into the sequel, but is still not sure about his return.
Following plan to start the production of "Wolverine 2" in early 2011, Liev Schreiber has once again talked about the possibility of seeing his character Sabretooth in the upcoming movie. Met at the press conference for "Repo Men" on Tuesday, March 9, he admitted that he loves the character so much that he would love to reprise the role in the "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" sequel.
Speaking to IGN, Schreiber said he had a dinner with Hugh Jackman on Monday, March 8 and they discussed the possibility of fitting Sabretooth into the film, even it is only for a cameo. Still, the 42-year-old claimed he is not sure about that, saying "It's still not clear whether or not Victor [Sabretooth's real name] will be present in the Japan storyline. In the Japan storyline as I remember it from the Wolverine comics, Victor was not there. So I don't know."
Back in August last year, the actor hinted that he would not probably reprise his role as Sabretooth due to his age. "I'm over 40 now, and do I really want to go through the physical stuff that it took to pull that off again? I'm not so sure," the life-partner of actress Naomi Watts explained.
While it is not clear whether or not Liev Schreiber will return as Sabretooth in "Wolverine 2", Hugh Jackman is set to reprise his role of Wolverine in the forthcoming movie. The film is scheduled to kick off principal photography in Japan in January 2011, but no director has been tapped to work on the project.
