As the home release of The Wolverine is fast approacing and X-Men: Days Of Future Past is headed to theaters next summer, Hugh Jackman has been making the interview rounds and has shared a few details concerning the next solo chapter of his adventures:

I was on the phone with James Mangold last night. There are some really cool ideas that I’m dying to tell you, but that would be giving away a secret that is not even [fully] formed yet.

I don’t want to dive into another one until we have a compelling reason to do another one. I love the character, he’s kind of like a best friend to me, and I don’t ever want to take [him] or the fans for granted. … I think we’ve got a great opportunity to make something really cool, but it has to be great. That’s what we’re all working toward.”

In addition, Jackman also revealed details on another upcoming project based on the musical Houdini, which is right up his alley due to his theater training:

“I loved the original production on Broadway – incredibly funny and terrific, great fun. I was not sure how that would translate [to film], but the script at the moment is wonderful. I think they’re trying to put the movie together, I don’t think it’s fully together yet, but they are talking to me about it, and I’m very interested in it.”

The Wolverine releases to DVD and Blu Ray on December 3, 2013
