Butter, Film News Comments Off

At long last, there’s some information about Hugh Jackman’s upcoming movie, Butter. After much silence on the project, today it’s been announced that the film will have its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). A summary of the movie is below:

Butter
Jim Field Smith, USA World Premiere

Set in the highly competitive world of championship butter carving, Butter blends social commentary, outrageous comedy and heartfelt drama in telling the story of the ambitious Laura Pickler (Jennifer Garner), the self-anointed First Lady of Butter Carving. Refusing to accept that her husband (Ty Burrell) wants to step down after his 15-year run as the “Iowa State Butter Carving Champion,” and therefore end the Pickler family’s reign in the spotlight, Laura takes a stab at the title herself. But her bid for glory is complicated when two unlikely contestants enter the race – one, her husband’s hard-living mistress (Olivia Wilde), and the other a 10-year-old foster child named Destiny (Yara Shahidi). Enlisting the help of her high school sweetheart, Boyd (Hugh Jackman), Laura will stop at nothing to be crowned champion, even if it means resorting to sabotage. Part political satire, part Capra-esque comedy, Butter is a story about what it means to win at all costs and against all odds.

This year, TIFF will take place September 8th-18th. The event is open to the public and tickets are available at the official website. Although it’s unconfirmed whether or not Hugh Jackman will be at the Butter premiere, there’s a good chance he’ll show up, so fans may want to stop by to check out the gala’s red carpet regardless.

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.”

General News, Rumored Projects Comments Off

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.”
