Sydney, Australia (CNS) – The visual effects company that “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” has been entrusted to denies responsibility for the film’s leakage onto the Web.

20th Century Fox was left furious after learning that their forthcoming superhero film, which stars Hugh Jackman in the title role, has been pirated and leaked onto the Internet this week, a month before its official theater release date on May 1.

The film studio quickly involved the FBI into investigating the matter, fully planning to prosecute the culprit for the leak.

Some reports have claimed that the leakage must have come from the Australian-based special effects company, Rising Sun Pictures, since the company logo appeared in a caption found in the bootleg copy.

The report is vehemently denied by the company.

Chairman and co-founder Tony Clark said in a statement posted on their website, “From the reports we’ve had, the stolen material is a work in progress version of the film with many incomplete sections.”

“As we worked on individual sequences within the film, neither RSP or its staff members have ever been in possession of a full-length version, so it would have been impossible for the movie to have been leaked from here.”

He added that it’s a common practice for them to incorporate their company’s watermark logo to the various edits of the film for screening, which would explain why their name appeared on the pirated copy wandering on the Web.
