It seems Hugh Jackman is very busy nowadays, what with announcements of Les Miserables, potential stops on Broadway, and bringing his one-man show around the world. Well, there’s something else even bigger brewing. Carlton Cuse, one of the writers from “LOST,” dropped a tidbit during an interview with Screen Junkies about a very interesting project for Hugh:

What are you working on now?
CC:
I’m working on a show for ABC that’s set against the backdrop of the Civil War. Then I’m writing a movie for Hugh Jackman and 20th Century Fox, a big sort of Indiana Jones action/adventure movie, for Hugh Jackman and the director Shawn Levy. We’ve been very closed about all the details but it’s going well and everybody’s excited about it.

Q: Do you want to draw on somewhat real mythology or totally invent your own?
CC:
All I can say is that it’s a unique world and I think it’s going to give an opportunity for Hugh Jackman to play a character in a world that’s really exciting. If you’re a fan of the Indiana Jones movies, you’ll love this movie.

Great news for Londoners and folks nearby: Hugh has told The Daily Mail that he’ll be bringing his one-man show to the English city. Because he’ll be filming Les Miserables at the time, the performances won’t be nightly, but he intends on getting onstage every Sunday evening. (Not only that, but there’s confirmation that he’s intending on bringing the act to Broadway next year!) An excerpt from the article, including information that could be beneficial to fans, is included below:

“I loved that ‘anything can happen,’ relaxed feel about Sinatra — and viewing Peter Allen’s tapes also taught me a lot,” he said. “We’re planning to do some Sunday night concerts when I’m in London in the spring.

“We’re looking for the right space, and the idea is to do the shows when I’ve got time off from Les Miserables. I just want them to be fun,” he told me, adding jokingly: “I feel like I should have a whisky in my hand, like Dean Martin, and then get Robbie Williams to come on and join me.”

Hugh said he expected to perform his concert show on Broadway in October next year.

He told me he met director Hooper for a three-hour audition for Les Mis. “I got cast early, because there was another movie I could do and I didn’t want to wait and get to November to find I had no movie at all. I told them that and I eventually got it.”

The stage version is completely sung through with no spoken dialogue. “That’s not going to work on film, so there’s now dialogue and songs,” said Hugh. “Tom’s take on the film is very exciting.”

According to ComingSoon.net, where the news was broken by Hugh Jackman himself, Steven Spielberg is currently working on a screen adaptation of the play, A Steady Rain. Keith Huff wrote the play and, although Hugh mentioned that a writer was on board for the film, it is unsure whether or not Huff is at the helm. ComingSoon.net also reported that they presume Hugh and Daniel Craig – who starred in the roles in the Broadway production – will reprise the roles for the screen, though that remains unconfirmed. Read a summary of the play below:

A Steady Rain focuses on two Chicago policemen who inadvertently return a Vietnamese boy to a cannibalistic serial killer who claims to be the child’s uncle. When he later becomes the man’s latest victim, the lifelong friendship of the two men is threatened when it becomes clear someone must bear responsibility for their egregious failure to assess the situation accurately.

Wolverine star Hugh Jackman made a surprise appearance at Comic-Con on Thursday morning to promote his robot boxing movie Real Steel, answering questions and bestowing swag upon a cheering crowd.

In the film, Jackman plays a down-and-out former boxer 10 years in the future when the sport is no longer done by humans, but rather 2,000-pound robot gladiators, two of which Jackman showed off to the crowd at the event.

“The world of human boxing is being superceded by robots who box,” Jackman said. “They’re badass. They’re unbelieveable. They’re great. But the reason I love the story was the human element of it. It’s a father-son relationship.”

There’s a bit of delay in posting this, but I was waiting for the video of the interview to finally show up! Anyway, here’s a really great (and long) interview by QTV, promoting Hugh Jackman’s Toronto performances and speaking about his career. There may not be any new information, but there’s a lot of insight into Hugh and the Hollywood life.

Hugh Jackman takes care of his own, so when the actor flew to Toronto earlier this month to perform in a one-man show, he brought along his kids and the family’s 10-month-old French bulldog Dali – in first class!

The lucky pup will soon rack up even more frequent-flier miles: After Hugh Jackman in Concert ends its run this weekend, the family, with Dali in tow, will jet off for their summer vacation.

“He’s coming to Europe with us,” Jackman’s wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, told PEOPLE at the July 13 Cinema Society screening of Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. “He’s part of the family.”

Dali may have a French pedigree, but he also has a Spanish spirit, thanks to his name. “My son, [Oscar], is an artist, and his favorite artist is Salvador Dalí,” Furness said. “Because of the way [the dog’s] mouth curls, he looks like Salvador Dalí with a mustache.”

She added, “He’s got a face only a mother could love.”
