Check That: Jessica Biel Will Not Be In ‘The Wolverine’
  |  @   |  

Usually when an actor enters into negotiations, it’s reported as if said actor has already landed the role. The reason for this is that, on most occasions, the negotiations between the two parties are merely a formality. This is not one of those cases.

It was recently reported that Jessica Biel had entered into negotiations to star alongside Hugh Jackman in his X-Men Origins: Wolverine sequel, The Wolverine. But now comes word that talks between Biel and 20th Century Fox have broken down, and the actress will not be appearing in the movie after all.

Biel had been chosen to play Viper, a former friend of Wolverine and current lover of Silver Samurai who is a secretary by day for Japan’s ministry of justice, and works for a man trying to take control of the ninja society the Hand by night.

Director James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma, Walk the Line) will now begin talking to other actresses at the top of their wish list.

Who do you want to see play Viper?
