Hugh Jackman speaks of Wolverine leak heartbreak

A 'serious crime', thunders thesp

Hugh Jackman has described himself as "heartbroken" by the leak of X-Men Origins: Wolverine which saw an incomplete version appear on several BitTorrent websites ahead of the official 1 May US release date.

According to the BBC, the Aussie thesp described the rough footage - featuring no CGI effects - as a "Ferrari without a paint job". He added: "There's no doubt it's very disappointing. Obviously people are seeing an unfinished film."

The FBI is currently looking into who was responsible for the leak, which Jackman denounced as "a serious crime".

Fox News thinks the matter's pretty serious too, and earlier this week confirmed it had fired columnist Roger Friedman for ill-advisedly posting a review of the paintless Ferrari in his weekly column. ®
