What is the 'Japan story'?

I keep hearing that Hugh Jackman wants to have another Wolverine movie centered around the 'Japan story'.
I know there was a period in Wolverine's history where he traveled to Japan and received samurai training, but I didn't know there was a story there worthy of a Hollywood movie.
Being an X-Men geek, I'm kinda ashamed at myself for not being familiar with the story in question, but Wolverine has such a lengthy and complex history that it's hard to keep up with it all.

It is a long and sordid tale. He moved there, troubled, but was able to make a peaceful life for himself. Eventually he was married (and sired Daken) but his wife was murdered and he lost his sh*t. If you read early issues of Wolverine Origins they touch upon a little of it, but Logan has always had many close ties to Japan, there are many stories that could be told of his time spent there.

How can you "Marvelize" something? How would that work?
