With the help of Make a Wish Foundation, Hugh Jackman surprised young fan Dominic, watch it:
Oscar-nominated actor Hugh Jackman is in early talks to star in a big-budget adaptation of Homer’s “The Odyssey” that Francis Lawrence (“The Hunger Games” sequels) will direct for Lionsgate, multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap.
After this story posted, a representative for Jackman confirmed that he’s in early talks, telling TheWrap “this is a conversation at this point. Very early stages and nothing is confirmed.”
Indeed, Jackman doesn’t have a deal in place yet but has had multiple conversations with the filmmaking team about playing Odysseus, the hero of the film who embarks on a long voyage home following the conclusion of the Trojan War.
Nina Jacobson of Color Force is producing the movie, which was written by Peter Craig. Production is expected to start next year.
Jackman, who is set to star in another “Wolverine” sequel for director James Mangold, will next be seen as Blackbeard in Joe Wright’s “Pan.” He also recently wrapped Dexter Fletcher’s ski jumper movie “Eddie the Eagle.” Jackman is represented by WME, Lou Coulson Associates and Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern.
Hugh recently appeared on the Sydney Confidential Podcast, where he discussed popular fan requests for the upcoming ‘The Wolverine 3‘ movie.
Hugh Jackman will put on his tux and his Wolverine claws for a new stage show that will tour his native Australia later this year.
The “Broadway To Oz” concert show will play major arenas in five cities and is structured as a personal journey through Jackman’s life, from early days in Outback Australia through successes in musical theater and Hollywood stardom.
It will mix medleys of work that Jackman has been directly associated with, as well as tributes to classic musicals. Jackman will be backed by a company of 150 musicians and dancers.
“’Broadway to Oz’ is a dream come true. This is the show I’ve always wanted to bring home.” Jackman said in a statement.
Jackman’s career began in Australia in the 1990s with starring roles in “Sunset Boulevard” and “Beauty and The Beast” and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s TV drama series “Corelli,” during which he met his wife, co-star Deborra Lee Furness. Roles in Australian independent films “Paperback Hero” and “Erskineville Kings” were followed by Hollywood successes including “The Prestige,” The Fountain,” “The X-Men” franchise and its “Wolverine” spinoff, and “Les Miserables,” for which he earned an Oscar nomination. His more recent stage successes include the hit Broadway show “Hugh Jackman: Back On Broadway.”
“Broadway To Oz” is produced by Robert Fox for The Dainty Group. The show starts in Melbourne on Nov. 24, touring through Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide, before closing in Perth on Dec. 15.
