Film News, Les Misérables, The Wolverine Comments Off on Will Production for ‘The Wolverine’ be Pushed Back Yet Again?

There’s some good and bad news to the latest news on The Wolverine. First, the bad news: it seems like production for the highly anticipated film may be pushed back yet again — to Spring 2012. On the plus side, this means paving the way for Tom Hooper’s Les Miserables, to which Hugh Jackman is already attached as Jean Valjean. IndieWire has the following report, also touching upon potential Les Mis casting:

Deadline reports that despite recent updates around the web that pointed to a November start for the comic book film with shooting to take place in Canada, the film will still head to the great white north, except it won’t start rolling until spring 2012. It appears that Hugh Jackman will want to do his song-and-dance routine in Tom Hooper’s Les Miserables first before putting on the claws for The Wolverine. Hooper’s follow-up to The King’s Speech has been casting up over the summer with Jackman as Jean Valjean and Russell Crowe in the role of Inspector Javert. Last we heard, shooting was going to begin in February 2012 but this news suggests the shooting date may be moving up (perhaps to get in for Oscar season next year). And according to industry tracking site It’s On The Grid, more talent is being rounded up with names like Hayden Panettiere, Miranda Cosgrove, Lucy Hale, and Emma Watson being tossed around for Eponine and Cosette with Amy Adams and Rebecca Hall being eyed for Fantine. Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter are in negotiations to reteam with Hooper to play the Thenardiers.

Gallery, General News, Public Appearances Comments Off on Jackman Family Attend “Nomad Two World” Exhibit Opening in Berlin

Hugh Jackman along with his family – Deborra-Lee Furness, Ava, and Oscar – attended the exhibition opening for “Nomad Two World” in Berlin, August 19th. Nomad Two World was part of the Toronto concerts Hugh performed last month, which perhaps explains why Oscar hopped onstage last night to perform the didgeridoo again. Photos from the evening have been added to the gallery. You can also check out an interview from the event below:

Film News, The Greatest Showman on Earth Comments Off on ‘The Greatest Showman on Earth’ Finds a Director

Is Les Miserables not enough musical for you? It seems like talks about The Greatest Showman on Earth aren’t just talks anymore, as a director has finally been attached to the P.T. Barnum biopic. Variety is reporting that Michael Gracey has signed on to helm the project, which has been described as “an original contemporary musical.”

Hugh Jackman is currently still committed to the project, though he has a very busy calendar ahead. Let’s just hope he gets more chances to show his singing and dancing chops in another movie-musical. Check out the plot of the film below, courtesy of Broadway World:

[Michael] Gracey is set to direct the biopic, about the legendary showman who created the three-ring circus, and loved to hoax a gullible public. A focal point of the movie is Barnum’s infatuation with opera singer Jenny Lind, called the Swedish Nightingale. So far, no actress has been cast for the role.

General News, Real Steel Comments Off on Hugh is “the Nicest Man,” Says ‘Real Steel’ Star Olga Fonda

Olga Fonda will soon be seen in the upcoming Real Steel alongside Hugh Jackman, and she’s already doing some press. She briefly spoke to Harper’s Bazaar about the movie, most notably her experience working with Hugh. Check out the very nice things she had to say below:

HB: What was it like working with Hugh Jackman on Real Steel?
Everybody kept saying to me how wonderful he is and what an amazing human being he is, so when I met him, I’m like, “Listen, I’ve heard all of these stories about you, and I’m here to prove them wrong” (laughs). So, we sat there and I’m like, “Oh my God, this guy…” I mean he is the nicest man. He is the most down-to-earth actor, and he’s very supportive to all the actors. He would sit there and be like, “Oh my God, this what you did, was amazing.”

Rumored Projects Comments Off on ‘Unbound Captives’ to Start Filming Next Year?

Hugh Jackman’s been involved with the highly anticipated Unbound Captives for years now, talking about it while he was doing promotion for A Steady Rain. While speaking to My San Antonio, director Madeleine Stowe spoke some more about the project, including the cast line-up thus far.

While at the ranch, Stowe came up with the idea to write “a large romantic Western” that was inspired, she said, by stories of the Hill Country in the late 1800s. “I heard about children who were abducted by Comanche Indians and became so acculturated that they had a hard time returning.

Our ranch had a real history,” she added. “When I lived there, I felt a certain way about Texas that I hadn’t seen filmed yet.”

She’ll start directing The Unbound Captives next year, she said, and already has rounded up the main cast: Hugh Jackman, Rachel Weisz and Robert Pattinson.
