“Hollywood has a hard time with westerns,” confirms Jackman

Many fans have been wondering about the fate of Unbound Captives, but finally a media source – MTV – has managed to ask Hugh Jackman a question on the project. He confirms that he’s still attached and that the movie has one of the best scripts he’s read in a long time, written by Madeleine Stowe. Unfortunately, he said that Hollywood has a hard time with westerns, so it’s not an easy sell. Check out the interview above.

  1. Some of the greatest movies including several Oscar winners have been Westerns. They regularly fall out of favor and then come back better than ever. Since I haven’t read the script I have no way of knowing, but it sounds a great deal like the wonderful John Wayne film, “The Searchers”. If there is a strong similarity, that may be what is making Hollywood nervous rather than just that it is a western.

  2. Hello! I was hoping you could perhaps consider posting alternative streaming site links for videos (such as these MTV ones) that are restricted to viewing in the U.S. =)
    I have the youtube alternative for this particular video here if you’re interested:

    I’ll try to remember! I do generally prefer posting YouTube videos (they seem to lag less), but sometimes I don’t see them available at the time.
