Film News, The Wolverine Comments Off

James Mangold is 20th Century Fox’s and star Hugh Jackman’s choice to direct The Wolverine, ending one of the most competitive contests for a major studio film. Negotiations are about to get underway, but I’m told that Mangold will take the helming job on the sequel to the X-Men spinoff film, a post that became vacant when Darren Aronofsky dropped out of the film in March. I’d heard that Mangold was on a very short list coming into this week, along with Warrior director Gavin O’Connor and Brooklyn’s Finest helmer Antoine Fuqua.

I’ve heard that Fox will look to start principal photography in the fall. Scripted by Christopher McQuarrie, The Wolverine takes place mostly in Japan. Mangold most recently directed the Tom Cruise-Cameron Diaz starrer Knight and Day for Fox, and before that 3:10 to Yuma and Walk the Line. Mangold’s repped by WME and Management 360.

I was really hoping that Hugh would be cast as Jean Valjean (or, really, anyone from Les Miserables), so I’m too excited about this new. Let’s hope the deal comes through!

Hugh Jackman is in talks to star Universal and Working Title’s big-screen musical adaptation of Les Miserables, to be directed by The King’s Speech helmer Tom Hooper.

If a deal makes, Jackman would play Jean Valjean, the man who steals bread to feed his sister and spends the ensuing years in prison (or trying to escape it) while also becoming the guardian of a young woman named Cosette, all against the backdrop of the French Revolution.

William Nicholson wrote the script. The story is based on the Victor Hugo book but best known to millions as one of the longest-running musicals around.

Les Miz, as it’s lovably known, would be the first time that Jackman, a singer and dancer with a Tony Award for his role in The Boy from Oz, would perform on the big screen. The WME-repped actor was scheduled to reprise his role as Wolverine in a sequel that was to have shot later this year, but the lack of a director on the project has thrown a wrench into that timetable.

As you may or may not know, Hugh Jackman made a very special appearance on the 65th Annual Tony Awards, June 12th. Although he didn’t present an award to any of the night’s winners, he was able to do something better: perform! He and host Neil Patrick Harris sang a dueling duet, arguing over which previous (now-multiple) Tonys host had the most. You can check out pictures of Hugh at a swag party, backstage, and during the performance above, or watch a video of him and NPH singing together below:

Here’s a new Vlog (video blog) entry by Richard Marx, featuring Matt Scannell (of Vertical Horizon) and Hugh Jackman on their way to St. Charles on June 8th. It’s fairly short, but cute: evident is the friendship that Hugh and Richard have with their bantering back and forth. Enjoy!
