We always suspected Wolverine had an Asian fetish, LOLz!
20th Century Fox just released The Wolverine's official plot synopsis and, yes, a great portion of the film will take place in Japan.
"Based on the celebrated comic book arc, The Wolverine finds Logan, the eternal warrior and outsider, in Japan. There, samurai steel will clash with adamantium claw as Logan confronts a mysterious figure from his past in an epic battle that will leave him forever changed."
We're stoked to watch this series take off in a new direction and we think 3:10 to Yuma director James Manigold is the right man for the job.
Via Twitter, he described his inspirations while shooting:
movies I think about as I make
#TheWolverine : Eastwood's Josie Wales, Powell's Back Narcissus, Hitchcock's Rear Window, Marnie, Vertigo

A Hitchcockian comic book film? We'd buy that for a dollar!
