Showbiz 411 is reporting that Wolverine 2 is gearing up to start filming next January.
The Blog from The Hollywood Reporter says that Christopher McQuarrie (Valkyrie, The Usual Suspects) has finished the script for the sequel that will be set in Japan. A director is not on board yet.

Based on a story cycle by Frank Miller and Chris Claremont, Wolverine’s adventures in martial arts will be a love story featuring a Japanese actress, I am told. “It’s a beautiful story,” says a source, “and will be very different than the first film.”
20th Century Fox has not set a release date for the film yet.
