Los Angeles - Richard E Grant has joined the cast of Wolverine 3.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, 58-year-old actor will play a "villainous mad-scientist type" in the upcoming movie, which will see Hugh Jackman once again reprise his role as metal-clawed Logan.
The actor took to Twitter to announce the news.

Richard is not the only villain in the movie as it was recently revealed that Boyd Holbrook, 34, has been cast as the driven, demanding and lethally smart head of security for a global company who will face off against Hugh's Wolverine.
Director James Mangold cast Boyd in the film, and viewers will recognise him for his role as Agent Steve Murphy on Netflix's drug cartel drama Narcos.
Joining Boyd and Richard in the cast line-up is former Star Trek star Patrick Stewart, who will return as the older Professor Xavier.
Other film details have been kept under wraps by scriptwriter David James Kelly, but Wolverine 3 could possibly be centred on stories from the Marvel superhero's later years.
It will be Jackman's last outing as the character he has played for 16 years and the film is expected to be released in cinemas on 3 March 2017.
A Star Wars spin off has been confirmed for 2020, according to Disney CEO Bob Iger. Read More »
