James Mangold is directing the movie, which is scheduled to begin production next month in Australia.
The story borrows heavily from the Chris Claremont-Frank Miller Wolverine comic book miniseries that premiered in the 1980s.
Tee is playing Noburo Mori, a corrupt minister of justice who is about to marry the daughter of a Yakuza crime lord (the daughter is Wolverine’s love interest).
Yun Lee will play Harada, more commonly known as The Silver Samurai. He possesses an electrified suit of Samurai armor and is the illegitimate son of the crime lord.
