Kodi Smit-McPhee Sticks to The Road, Drops Out of Wolverine

Plus: A new Wolverine set report!

by | March 3, 2008 | Comments

If forced to choose between starring in a project about an adamantium-clawed superhero and one based on a Pulitzer-winning Cormac McCarthy novel, what would you do?

If you were Kodi Smit-McPhee, you’d opt for the latter, at least according to ComingSoon, where it’s being reported that the young Australian actor has done just that, dropping out of a role as young Logan in X-Men Origins: Wolverine due to scheduling conflicts with his part in The Road.

Wolverine is moving right along; Smit-McPhee has been replaced with a “13-year-old Perth resident” named Troye Mellet. While Mellet gets ready to play young Wolvie — perhaps on some of the freshly built sets described in a new report (with photos!) over at Ain’t It Cool News — Smit-McPhee will be doing a whole lot of walking alongside Viggo Mortensen.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine opens May 1, 2009; no release date for The Road has been announced yet.
