Summary: X-Men star Hugh Jackman has been spilling the beans on a possible sequel to his hit Wolverine.

X-Men star Hugh Jackman has been spilling the beans on a possible sequel to his hit Wolverine.

Speaking at the movie's premiere in Tokyo, the Australian actor said he thinks the next installment in the franchise will be set in Japan.

He told his Japanese fans that the "X-Men" cast is going to need their help when filming in Japan.

"X-Men fans will know the series, the saga set in Japan for "Wolverine" is one of the greatest parts of the "X-Men" franchise and in the comic books, and I've longed to bring that story to the big screen.

"So I'm very excited. I'd like to invite you all to audition, there are gonna be many parts and we are writing the script right now so as soon as it's written and we're cast, I'll let you know when we're gonna be down here to shoot, but there's gonna be a lot of sashimi for Wolverine. Maybe he'll use those claws to cut some sashimi,"

Jackman arrived at the premiere on a Harley Davidson motorcycle before escorting his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, down the red carpet.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which opened in the UK at the beginning of the summer, told the back story of how the character came to have razor claws.

It was the fourth time Jackman had played the character, following on from the three original X-Men movies.
