Walk The Line Director James Mangold Is Taking Charge Of Another Biopic, This Time About Iconic Actress Ingrid Bergman And Her Clandestine Affair With Noted War Photographer Robert Capa.
The film, set in post-World War Two Paris, is based on author Chris Greenhalgh's 2012 book Seducing Ingrid Bergman, a dramatised account of the stars' real-life romance, which took place while she was still married to Petter Aron Lindstrom.
The project has been in the works for the past two years and Mangold will now help to move the film forward by working with screenwriter Amash Amel to tweak the script.
Casting details and a release date have yet to be revealed.
Hugh Jackman has hinted that a third 'Wolverine' movie will be his last as the comic book character after posting a cryptic message in his Instagram account.

X-Men fans are pretty excited about The Wolverine's easter egg.
So James Mangold's The Wolverine, starring Hugh Jackman, wasn't really that bad in the end. There was brief couple of days when Rotten Tomatoes was filling up with a flurry of bad reviews for the X-Men movie, though the heavyweight critics gave Jackman and company the benefit of the doubt.

During its opening weekend at the box-office, the movie took a modest $55 million (despite estimates of $80 million) though pulled in $86.1 million internationally to comfortably recoup its budget. In other words, from now on everything that The Wolverine pulls in at the cinema and on DVD and BluRay is pure profit. In other, other, words - it's all been a rather big success.
Hugh Jackman's The Wolverine topped the box-office in 100 countries.

The superhero picture set in Japan opened bigger than any previous X-Men movie abroad, making $86.1 million internationally to add to a modest $55 million domestically. The 20th Century Fox project certainly cannot be considered a flop in the U.S - it still earned the No.1 spot - though it made $10 million less than expected.

Hugh Jackman as Wolverine takes a break from the X-Men in new solo movie 'The Wolverine' which will be released imminently. What do those who've had a first preview reckon?
Set in modern day Japan after the events of X-Men: The Last Stand, The Wolverine will follow its titular knuckle-bladed character as he faces his ultimate nemesis in a battle that will change him forever and leave him more powerful than ever before. There'll be katana-swishing samurais, gangland crime, ancient clans, and bullet train battles as Wolverine's travels take him East to meet new mutants in a role that Hugh Jackman bulked up for by eating "an awful lot of chicken, steak and brown rice" under Dwayne Johnson's advice.

Set for release over the next few day, the film's already received generally appreciative critical reception but The Guardian's Henry Barnes isn't delighted with the previews, saying "The fights are predictable, the scenery disappointingly drab considering the potential in Tokyo's neon-lit wonder-world," whilst recognising that the shortcomings of the movie could stem from director James Mangold's history of being more qualified as an "actors' director than action man," with films such as Walk The Line, 3:10 To Yuma and Girl, Interrupted under his belt. Barnes also observes that spark and interest could be waning in the X-Men because "the franchise has been snicked into strands so twisted from each other that its getting tough to trace the genealogy."

Logan is the mutant Wolverine who, along with a skeleton of adamantium, retractable claws and heightened senses, possesses a healing power that renders him ageless and immortal. To most, this would be a gift, but to Logan it is the biggest curse he could possibly suffer following the death of his beloved Jean Grey and his isolation from other mutants. He is visited by Mariko Yashida who takes him to Japan where her employer insists on repaying him for saving his life many years ago. Logan is offered the chance to surrender his life-saving powers in order for him to live out his life and take comfort in its natural end but, when it comes down to it, it may not have the consequences he hoped for as he is once again deceived and forced to fight to defend the name of the X-Men. Only this time, his chances are running out.
Carrying on from events in 2006's 'X-Men: The Last Stand', 'The Wolverine' returns in a more intense and testing story than ever before. It is the sequel to the 'X-Men' film series based on the Marvel comic books by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller and has been directed by James Mangold ('Girl, Interrupted', 'Walk the Line', 'Cop Land') who also co-wrote the screenplay with Mark Bomback ('Total Recall', 'Die Hard 4.0'), Scott Frank ('Minority Report', 'Marley & Me') and Christopher McQuarrie ('The Usual Suspects', 'The Tourist'). It will come to UK cinemas everywhere on July 15th 2013.
