The Hashtag Show has stated that 20th Century Fox has announced a casting call for the studio's upcoming movie based on Marvel comic book, "Wolverine 3." The YouTube video of the show mentions that the call is for Laura Kinney a.k.a. X-23 – the female clone of Wolverine.
The description of the character as stated by Comic Book, reads:
"20th Century Fox are seeking a a 11 - 14 year old girl to play the role of Zoe in a brand new movie!! [ZOE] 12 to 15 year-old girl. Still a child, but a wounded badass, a pound puppy, raised in captivity in a time of battle, without support systems of normal childhood. She has no family and until now, has never left the compound in which she was born. She has an authentic intensity – her expressions and body language speak volumes, without words.
"Once released in the outside world, everything is new – every experience and every image a first. This does not mean everything is wonderful or wondrous. Some things she sees (things we might regard as conventional) may scare her or anger her and things we may find interesting may bore her. She has not been instructed in many social conventions – she can eat like an animal. She studies and often mimics people's behaviour.
"She has a high IQ, but is also a temperamental, impulsive and feral creature that can raise genuine mayhem. She is a girl that has never been kissed. Looking for a REAL girl - not made up or done up. Also with genuine edge, not made up or put on. Martial arts or gymnastics experience preferred but not necessary – but actress must be extremely physical and able to improvise scenes without necessarily resorting to speech. Do NOT play it 'cute.'"
"Wolverine 3" is currently filming under the codename "Juarez" in New Orleans, Lousiana. In the recent set pictures, a young actress in the 11 to 14 age range can be seen filming scenes with Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart.
