Hot off his Sundance breakout “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl,” director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon is lining up his next project with two of Hollywood’s biggest talents. Sources tell Variety that Gomez-Rejon has attached himself to direct “Collateral Beauty” with Hugh Jackman and Rooney Mara attached to star.

Allan Loeb wrote the original screenplay, which is set in a New York ad agency and focuses on a man whose life is flipped upside down after experiencing a tragedy that sends him down a path of deep depression. Anonymous Content’s Michael Sugar and Bard Dorros are producing.

The drama does not have a distributor or financier, yet the attachment of Jackman and Gomez-Rejon should make it one of the hotter packages in town.

After winning both the grand prize and audience award at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, “Me and Earl” made Gomez-Rejon a must-get filmmaker for studios and high-profile projects. But the filmmaker, who got his start on TV (“Glee,” “American Horror Story”), is said to have fallen in love with Loeb’s script.

“Collateral Beauty” reunites Jackman and Mara, who recently starred together in Warner Bros.’ Peter Pan origin story “Pan,” which opens in October.

Jackman just finished “Eddie the Eagle” opposite Taron Egerton. Mara, star of “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” has a big year starting with her Cate Blanchett romancer “Carol,” which premieres at the Cannes Film Festival this Sunday. She most recently wrapped production on Jim Sheridan’s “The Secret Scripture” and next month starts shooting drama “Blackbird.”

Jackman, Mara and Gomez-Rejon are all repped by WME. Gomez-Rejon is also repped by LBI Entertainment, while Management 360 also backs Mara.

Hugh Jackman has officially confirmed that the third Wolverine movie will be his last time playing the role that he has owned in the X-Men film franchise.

“This will be my last one,” Jackman said, point blank, when asked about it on the Dr. Oz show earlier today.

“It is my last time,” he continued. “It just felt like it was the right time to do it. And let’s be honest, 17 years. I never thought in a million years it would last, so I’m so grateful to the fans for the opportunity of playing it.

“I kind of have in my head what we’re going to do in this last one. It just feels like this is the perfect way to go out.”

This still leaves it unclear whether or not he’ll be making an appearance in X-Men: Apocalypse, which opens before the next Wolverine, but he hasn’t been seen on set in Motreal so far.

Either way, Jackman’s Wolverine has been the most iconic role in the franchise since he first played Logan in the original X-Men. The character was even used as the through line to bring the original and prequel trilogies together in X-Men: Days of Future Past. His presence will certainly be difficult to replace.

The third Wolverine movie is expected to be released in 2017.

MASHABLE.COM – Australian actor Hugh Jackman has joined forces with Australian sportsmen to urge the government to reconsider closing down remote Indigenous communities.

Last week, Western Australia’s Premier Colin Barnett announced a plan to close 150 Indigenous communities in remote areas of the state and relocate more than 1,000 residents. The state government believes it is “not sustainable” to support the communities after the federal government cut funding to essential services.

On Mar. 10, Prime Minister Tony Abbott supported the Western Australian government’s proposal, stating the country can’t support “lifestyle choices.”

“What we can’t do is endlessly subsidise lifestyle choices if those lifestyle choices are not conducive to the kind of full participation in Australian society that everyone should have,” Abbott told ABC Radio. “Fine, by all means live in a remote location, but there’s a limit to what you can expect the state to do for you if you want to live there.”

Critics were quick to slam Abbott’s remarks, with the chair of the government’s Indigenous Advisory Council, Warren Mundine, saying the comments angered many in the community.

“People are living in these communities not because of lifestyle choices but because of very strong cultural and religious reasons. People have got to understand that for indigenous people in Australia, their country is the essence of their being,” Mundine told BBC Australia.

Protests have been held across Western Australia, with more than 700 people protesting on the steps of State Parliament in Perth on Thursday.

On Friday, following a call from activists on Twitter, Jackman showed his support for Indigenous Australians with an Instagram post.

“While living in a remote community, I came to understand that “connection” to the land is a fundamental part of Indigenous identity,” he wrote. “Think about the past, have quality conversations.”

Jackman talked candidly in 2011 about the time he spent in a remote outback community as a student, helping build houses. He said the experience helped him “grow up” and it had a profound affect on him as a person. “I was inspired by the family, I was inspired by their community, I was inspired by their culture, their togetherness,” Jackman told George Stroumboulopoulos on his Canadian talk show.

In one of those magical moments that often seems to happen on the Tonight Show, Hugh Jackman and Chris Hemsworth put on wigs to play a game of musical beers. Jackman was appearing on the Tonight Show to promote his upcoming movie Chappie, which opens in theaters in this weekend.

Meanwhile, Hemsworth is in New York to guest host Saturday Night Live, and he stopped by the Tonight Show along with several SNL cast members. When he arrived on the stage, Hemsworth noticed Jackman’s wig and asked for a wig of his own, which Fallon happily provided. The two superhero actors then mugged for the camera, providing the closest thing that fans are likely to see to a Wolverine and Thor team-up.

In the musical beers game, contestants walked around a table, stopping when the music stopped. If the contestant had a beer in front of them, then they had to drink it. If they didn’t have a beer in front of them, then they were out of the game. While Fallon ultimately won the game, Hemsworth lasted longer than Jackman, snatching a beer right out of Wolverine’s claws.


Hugh is doing Press Junkets for Chappie, which is set for release in US on March, here are some interviews.
