Wolverine stakes out the shire

HUGH Jackman took time from his busy Wolverine schedule to thank Sutherland Shire for allowing the production company, 20th Century Fox, to shoot scenes for the blockbuster film at Bonna Point Reserve, Kurnell.

The actor, who was dressed and made up as his character Logan, personally thanked mayor Carol Provan and the council for letting them close the site to create a Japanese prisoner of war camp.

Jackman said he was keen to check out some of the other shire sights and take his son to visit Captain Cook’s Landing Place and Cape Solander, Kurnell.

‘‘It’s a beautiful spot here,’’ Jackman told the Leader.‘‘This is the first time I’ve been to Kurnell and the location is great.’’The friendly actor said the downside of playing a comic-book character was his daily two-hour gym sessions.‘‘Yesterday I was up at half past three and this morning I was up at quarter to five,’’ Jackman said.‘‘They got to do some shots without me this morning, so I got a bit of a sleep in.’’This is the second and final day of shooting on-site at Kurnell.Production for the film will continue around Sydney and a few weeks in Japan before it wraps up mid-November.
