Stage Work Comments Off on Hugh Jackman Preps for a Broadway Return Before He Even Leaves the Stage

As The River prepares for its final curtain, which comes down this Sunday, its headlining star, Hugh Jackman, is already getting ready for his next Broadway stage performance.

According to the New York Post, Jackman is preparing a brand-new solo show to display the dancing chops he exhibited in his Tony-winning performance as Peter Allen in The Boy From Oz. The production will reprise his collaboration with choreographer Warren Carlyle (After Midnight), who directed Jackman’s first Broadway solo show, Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway.

“I want to do something that’s going to challenge me in a different way,” he told the Post. “And, as a 46-year-old guy, I realize there are limited years left for the kind of dancing I want to do, to push myself as far as I can go.”

Jackman and Carlyle first met in 1988 during a London production of Oklahoma! The actor performed the role of Curly while Carlyle assisted director Susan Stroman, and, according to Jackman, offered personalized dance training. Nearly three decades later, the pair will be picking up where they left off — and Broadway audiences are excited to see the final result.

Film News Comments Off on Hugh Jackman Set For Eddie The Eagle Film?

Possible new project for Hugh. Via EmpireOnline:

There are some news stories that simply make you stop and say, “wait… WHAT?” The idea of Hugh Jackman appearing in a film about Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards is one of those. But it’s apparently true, with Kingsman: The Secret Service’s Taron Egerton reportedly set to strap the skis on to star as possibly the most famous wannabe Olympian of the 1980s.

This comes from The Daily Mail’s Baz Bamigboye, not a man known for making such things up, even as we needed eyebrow surgery to correct the arch that appeared. And the idea of an Eddie The Eagle film has been in the works for years – the last time we heard anything of it, Father Ted’s Declan Lowney was attached to direct and Steve Coogan was on to play Eddie. Now, though, it appears they’re pitching the role younger, and Dexter Fletcher will be calling the shots.

Edwards, in case the name doesn’t ring any Ski Sunday cowbells, was the first person ever to represent the UK in the ski jump – at the Olympics in Calgary in 1988. Ranked 55th in the world, Edwards was completely self-funded (he worked as a plasterer to make ends meet) and was the sole applicant to represent Blighty. Once there, his weight (nine pounds more than the next contestant), lack of financial support, long-sightedness (which required him to wear glasses that frequently fogged during the competition) and fear of heights rather affected his medal chances, and he finished last in both his events. Still, his good spirits and can-do attitude won him fans around the world, leading to a brief pop career and, now, this biopic.

Assuming he’s definitely aboard, Jackman would be Chuck Berghorn, a ski expert who helped him train, with Timothy Spall wanted for another key role, that of Eddie’s dad. It’s supposed to be kicking off shooting in the spring, so we’ll see the Eagle can soar into cinemas at last.

X-Men: Apocalypse Comments Off on Hugh Jackman Teases X-Men: Apocalypse and Wolverine 3

20th Century Fox and Bryan Singer got the band back together for this year’s colossal hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, and before it even debuted in theaters, plans were already being put in motion for a follow-up, X-Men: Apocalypse. We know that the 2016 film will see the return of the “First Class” cast members along with younger versions of other characters, but one very important mutant whose involvement hasn’t been mentioned is Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine.

“I have been speaking to the guys, and I’m not at liberty to tell exactly what’s going on,” Jackman said on the Happy Say Confused Podcast (via MTV), “Which is largely framing my answer here….But there’s still a lot unknown about that, actually. There are some very exciting things about integrating the whole X-Men world, including the Wolverine movie. There’s some really cool things going on.”

Even if Jackman doesn’t appear as the character in “Apocalypse,” a third Wolverine film is also in the pipeline with a scheduled release date of March 3, 2017, which Jackman confirmed he and David James Kelly are “working on… really hard.”

“I’m very, very excited about that, actually,” Jackman teased for the film, which will see James Mangold return to the director’s chair.

Cameras will start rolling on the Bryan Singer directed X-Men: Apocalypse in Montreal beginning April, 2015 for a May 27, 2016 release.

The River Comments Off on Hugh Jackman Rushes ‘The River’ Into Profit

the_river_production_still

If anyone still had doubts about Hugh Jackman being a guarantee of box-office gold on Broadway, the announcement that his latest vehicle, The River, has recouped its $3.2 million investment in just a month should be proof enough.

Lead producer Sonia Friedman confirmed on Friday that the Jez Butterworth play, directed by Ian Rickson, has earned back its capitalization, meaning a healthy profit can be expected from the remainder of the run, which is s scheduled through Feb. 8.

The news comes on the heels of the announcement earlier in the week that the all-star revival of the Terrence McNally comedy It’s Only a Play also recouped, getting this season off to a strong start for nonmusicals.

First produced at London’s Royal Court Theatre in 2012, The River stars Jackman alongside Laura Donnelly and Cush Jumbo in an enigmatic drama about a trout fisherman in a remote cabin and his attempts on a moonless night to recapture the woman of his dreams.

The Broadway transfer began previews on Oct. 31 at the Circle in the Square and officially opened on Nov. 16. While reviews for the play itself were far more mixed than in London, critics generally had high praise for the production, and Jackman in particular.

The actor has previously been a major draw on Broadway in the Peter Allen bio-musical The Boy From Oz, for which he won a Tony Award for best actor; in the cop drama A Steady Rain, starring opposite Daniel Craig; and in his song-and-dance show Hugh Jackman: Back on Broadway. The commercial success of The River demonstrates that Jackman’s star power also translates to more challenging material.

The production has been playing to capacity audiences since the start of previews, with grosses of $5.5 million through Dec. 14. The fast recoupment is all the more remarkable in a theater that seats less than 700 people, and for a production with an affordable-ticket policy of offering a significant number of $35 and $95 seats at every performance.

Other producers on the show with Friedman are Stuart Thompson, Scott Rudin, Roger Berlind, Colin Callender, Scott Landis and Tulchin Bartner Productions.

Gallery, General News, Public Appearances Comments Off on 68th Annual Tony Awards

Did you check out the 68th Annual Tony Awards last night? Hugh Jackman was the host for the evening — and showcased not only his talent but physical stamina! Opening the show, he hopped throughout Radio City Music Hall for four minutes – a nod to Bobby Van’s “Take Me To Broadway” number from the 1953 musical, Small Town Girl – and greeted various performers who would be gracing the stage along the way.

Along with the bouncing, Hugh also led LL Cool J and T.I. into a rap inspired by The Music Man, borrowing “Rock Island” and adapting it to a modern audience. Hugh’s presence was felt throughout the entire evening, serving up songs for nominated actresses and providing backstage shenanigans (including playing in a band with Bradley Cooper and a card game with Sting) before commercial breaks. He also announced the winners for a couple of awards and was even able to give the history-making Audra McDonald her sixth Tony – a new record – and becoming the first person to win in all four acting categories.

If official video becomes available, I will provide links here. In the meantime, enjoy the various pictures – from the red carpet, show, and backstage – of Hugh from the 2014 Tonys!

Earlier today, May 21st, Hugh Jackman joined his X-Men: Days Of Future Past co-stars for an interview at SiriusXM. James McAvoy and Patrick Stewart – both of whom play Charles Xavier in the upcoming film – were on-hand to help promote the film. Although there is yet no footage or sound clips from the interview (I heard it’s meant to air on Friday morning), there are several photos from the event in the gallery. It looks like they had an absolute blast — can’t wait for the interview!
