Jackson, who also reportedly opted out of hosting the awards ceremony last year – because he didn’t want to take the reins two years in a row – says he’ll be too busy filming X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2.

Deadline reports that Wolverine 2 will be filmed in late February, which clashes with the February 27, 2011 broadcast of the Oscars.
