Richard E Grant (Withnail & I, Doctor Who, Jekyll & Hyde) has been cast in the third (and Hugh Jackman’s last) solo Wolverine movie.
Although precise details are not know, according to The Hollywood Reporter he will play a mad scientist in the James Mangold-directed film. Well, there’s a shocker.
Richard E Grant joins a cast that already includes Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart and Boyd Holbrook. Rumours persist that the film will set in the future and be based on the “Old Man Logan” comic book series, in which Wolverine tries to lead a resistance in a world dominated by supervillains.
