    I suppose this is rather crappy news. But it will most likely still be released May 2009 whether it starts filming now or after June next year....

    Fox Studios has eight sound stages. AUSTRALIA I believe is being filmed only on stage 7, and the movie is supposed to finally wrap either the end of November or beginning of December - Hugh's co-star Nicole Kidman said on Oct. 28 they had six weeks left of filming. So I don't know if I believe this story because of no room. Plus they can't start filming WOLVERINE without Hugh - six weeks from Oct. 28 ends on Dec. 7 (if the dates are to be taken literally). Perhaps Hugh is taking a few weeks off, and then the holidays roll around where filming usually stops anyway.

    And this statement IMO makes no sense:

    Both movies star Hugh - so they can't start filming one when he's still filming the other!

    And yes, there may be a SAG strike on July 1 which means no actors will be working. I think a director's strike also.

    Cinema Blend likes to make up stories.

    Update, even though it doesn't sound like CinemaBlend believes them. I say again, I've been following AUSTRALIA since the beginning, and it's scheduled to wrap end of November/beginning of December, and as far as I know, it's only using one soundstage - that was mentioned in one of the press releases.

    FYI - there was also a response in the original story which sounds like it's from the scooper:

    Ok, so it sounds like they are still shooting for the January 14th start, which to them is on schedule. If there are any delays at all I would say it would be related to the strike, and not the filming of Australia, as that has been filming since April as people have pointed out. Plus, Nicole is going to be starting massive promotion for The Golden Compass over the next week or so I assume, so she won't be available to do much throughout that.

    We have been hearing for a while now about a January start, I guess Cinema Blend is just behind on that news. Fox never actually confirmed a start date on principal photography anyway, so it is only a delay in our eyes because we had seen earlier dates to begin with.

    That's true about Nicole - she's scheduled to appear on the talk show "Regis & Kelly" on Friday, and then there's "The Golden Compass" premieres all next week in London, LA and NYC (I assume she's attending all of them) so not sure how that affects "Australia" filming - if they are just off or doing stuff without her. She also was in the US two weeks ago for a few days promoting her other movie "Margot at the Wedding" so she's been absent from the set a lot. If she didn't have all those promotions IMO the movie would have wrapped already. She also has another movie she has to start filming which originally was December but is now January.

    Anyway, since Hugh has nothing to promote and has been filming this movie since April he's been very quiet - I'm hoping once "Australia" finally wraps he will give some sort of interview or soundbite about "Wolverine." January IMO makes sense since "Australia" won't wrap until the end of November/beginning of December and that will give Hugh a few weeks and then the holidays kick in, so filming hopefully will start right after that.
     
  12. The flick doesn't come out until 2009, so any early delays prob won't hurt it anyway :up:

    There is no impending SAG strike. Another example of the "Reliable friend/source" garbage.

    No, SAG is throwing the idea out there to show solidarity to the WGA and their strike. It won't happen. The royalty issues that the WGA are striking over will be applied to SAG, as the studios will not be able to handle a second strike to halt production.
    What the WGA doesn't (or won't) realize is that a SAG strike piggybacking on their strike will hurt them (the WGA) way more than it will hurt the SAG. The SAG strike will not be supported by WGA the way the WGA strike is being supported by SAG. Watch and see. The first people to whine about the SAG strike will be WGA.

    Well according to the latest auction, filming will be happening in Sydney from March 2008, so it will more than likely begin (as originally planned) in New Zealand from Jan 14th and go through until the end of February there, then move to Sydney.

    That makes sense to me - a break for Hugh after he finishes filming "Australia" in the next few weeks, then the holiday break, and then the start of filming in New Zealand and then back to Australia. I would think the New Orleans leg would be last since Hugh has a movie to promote at the end of April (called "The List" - Maggie Q is in that one too!) and assuming filming is still going on and they finish the Australia filming, he could easily do the US talk shows, premieres, etc.

    Hugh's co-star in AUSTRALIA, Nicole Kidman, is in London promoting her new movie and she said filming for AUSTRALIA finishes on December 21. So the January 14 start date sounds right to me.

    I do think delays on AUSTRALIA have affected the filming dates, not only for Hugh but for Nicole as well. First we heard WOLVERINE would start Nov. 7, then it was Dec. 10, now it's Jan. 14. Nicole is doing another movie that's already filming but she was due on the set first in November, then December, now January. AUSTRALIA director Baz Luhrmann had said a few months ago that filming would be done in November. So there have obviously been delays on this movie that have affected the filming of WOLVERINE. This movie will have been filming for EIGHT MONTHS - it started at the end of April.

    I think this could be just a rumor since stunt training and visual effect design have just officially started 2 weeks ago. However, pre-vis and story boards are done. Auditions were held in Australia for many key and supporting roles with local celebrities attending.

    I know for a fact that there will be a major fight scene between logan - deadpool and logan - agent zero. However i wish someone could tell me what kind of powers these 2 have.

    In my opinion, the movie will not be delayed.
