Total Recall star Jessica
Biel has reportedly walked out of superhero film The
Wolverine as she got cold-feet at the last moment.
The 30-year-old actress was supposed to play Marvel
super-villain Viper in the film, The Hollywood Reporter said.
A similar turn of events happened in 2007 when Biel was
in talks with Warner Bros to play Wonder Woman in a Justice
League of America movie.
Producers are now trying to find another actress to
portray the friend-turned-foe of the titular Marvel mutant,
played by Hugh Jackman.
The international cast already includes at Will Yun Lee,
Brian Tee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Rila Fukushima and
James Mangold is directing the film, which begins
shooting next month in Sydney.
The film will hit theatres in July, 2013.
