Boyd Holbrook in Negotiations to Play ‘Wolverine 3’ Villain

”Narcos“ star to play opposite Hugh Jackman in third Fox film

“Wolverine 3” is close to signing its latest villain — “Narcos” star Boyd Holbrook, an individual familiar with the discussions told TheWrap.

Holbrook, who has also appeared in “Gone Girl” and Natalie Portman‘s “Jane Got a Gun,” is in negotiations to play an original character — a sinister security director facing off against Jackman’s iconic mutant.

Holbrook is repped by CAA. He recently wrapped production on “Cardboard Boxer,” co-starring Terrence Howard and Thomas Hayden Church.

“Wolverine 3,” Jackman’s final run as the clawed hero, is set for a March 3, 2017, release.
