After far too many delays to count, The Wolverine finally begins filming this week. Australia's 7News has some footage of the set, which appears to be a World War II-era prison camp. No reported sightings of a clawed-and sideburned Hugh Jackman yet (although he did post a picture of his first-day-of-shooting breakfast on Twitter this morning), but we can see some extras running around and reaction from the locals about the movie being filmed on their beach.
I love how someone just figured they were shooting The Hobbit. In addition to the Australia shoot, the movie will be filming scenes in Japan as well.
The Wolverine will open in theaters on July 26, 2013.
