A film which seems to be the forthcoming sequel to James Mangold's The Wolverine is currently casting for drug dealers, prostitutes, and gang members.

According to a casting call released earlier today on a Facebook page intended for extras casting, a film whose e-mail response address names it as Juarez is looking for the following parts:

DRUG DEALERS: Men over the age of 18, any ethnicity, who appear to be in their 20s-50s
PROSTITUTES: Women over the age of 18, any ethnicity, who appear to be in their 20s-30s
HOMELESS: Men & Women over the age of 18, any ethnicity, who appear to be in their 30s-60s
CARTEL GANG MEMBERS: Hispanic-looking men over the age of 18 who appear to be in their 20s-40s

Juarez is understood to be the working title for the new Wolverine film.

To be considered for casting, potential actors have to be present for a wardrobe fitting on June 23.

A recent report claimed that the film's title, along with the first bit of footage and a poster, will be revealed at San Diego Comic-Con 2016.

With the Essex Corporation taking possession of the Weapon X project's data at the end of X-Men: Apocalypse, the rumored title of Weapon X would seem to be a natural follow-up. The film's villains will be a mad scientist and a corporate executive, both of which would be at home in a film focusing on the shady government organization.

The third Wolverine will movie will be Hugh Jackman's final performance as the character. Rumors have suggested that that film will be based on the "Old Man Logan" storyline, and Jackman and producer Simon Kinberg have both hinted at the idea as well. Rumors have also suggested that the film will introduce Wolverine's clone X-23. The Apocalypse post-credits scene hints at that possibility, as does a film focused on Weapon X. X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer himself pitched Fox on the idea of replacing Wolverine with X-23 after Jackman's retirement from the role.
